Over the last two weeks or so I have created a few threads on this forum, with questions. There was one thread for every topic, and if people answered and there were follow-up questions, I kept them in the same thread. None of it approached spamming, and it seemed convenient for people to actually see what the latest questions were, when they visited the forum. Those who knew something about those topics and wanted to respond did right there. Then the moderators wrapped all of those different topics in the General questions thread, which is a sure way to reduce visibility.
The ideal seems to be an empty board: because nothing so much tidier than existence, and, possibly, some of the questions have been answered in eons past. The prescribed behavior is to search the archives and go to Google, but never ever dare to use the boards to actually communicate - because this place, apparently, is a shrine. I did not ask about every little thing, I tried to test what I could, and the G3 guide is probably never going to go away from my browser's most-frequently-visited-sites menu. All the same, often it is much easier and foolproof to just ask, and I get a distinct sense the right to speak is somehow a privilege here.
Well, I am not here to figure out moderators' logic or observe a ceremonial kow-tow protocol. In my simplicity, I actually want to come to this place, ask questions and, if others want to respond, get answers. The police of this place are not the people I come to see. I do not want to think twice about creating a topic if that is called for, hesitate or wonder what someone might think about it. So how about getting off my neck?
