Default Why?

does anyone else notice that some members post a few times and then are never heard from again?

do they just join to find out some specific information, and then just disappear, never to be heard from again?

Ummm, yeah, I think so....pretty sure.

Why don't we go through and weed out the members with a low post count who haven't posted in a certain time period? (Don't worry Axxxe, you're fine.)

it's like they just have specific concern or question, and get the answer and then never come back.

granted when i joined the forum, it was about guns in specific, but i stayed because of the members and the social type atmosphere. if not for FTF, i probably wouldn't have any friends!

If my first post received some of the responses I have seen, I would not have returned. I have been guilty of this as well. I plan to try to restrain myself in the future. No promises.

I've joined other specialty forums when researching things or getting ready to buy something, then dropped out.

Default I've done that

because perhaps that forum didn't hold my interest...but if I LIKE a forum, you are stuck with me..LOL. Guess where FTF fell?

I was on audiokarma.org for years...

I think some people join the forum just to try to start a fight. Then they move on. There is one guy that had 30 posts over a period of like 2 years. I simply followed his post by encouraging him to post more. He ended up sending me a nasty pm. I don't know what is wrong with people.

I guess I could understand them wanting information from probably the "Best Weapons Forum" and whos members are the most knowledgeable. But what really agrivates me is when they come on post a thread with a question and never respond to the members who have provided them with the information they requested?\! Never to be heard from again! Even a "Thank You" would be appreciated!
