I agree, discussion is great. And many questions do get answered.
My original point though, was that I feel people should respond
in a positive way to an original thread.
If after a few responses a debate or discussion ensues, that's no
problem. But the original topic should be addressed so that
quetions may be answered in a resonable amount of time.
Otherwise, the thread starter is just sitting and waiting to have their question answered while others are engaged in a great debate that may not be relative.
