I couldn't agree more.
A guy had been trying to solve a vessel equilibrium problem for the last three years. In an effort to find the solution he had contacted eight different forums
before contacting this forum. I was able to show him where he could find the solution but there has been no feedback, no thanks - nothing.
Why would you bother making an effort?
I am always on the alert when I see a person is posting
for the first time on the forum and they ask a question like:
" I am thinking of getting into the business of boat maintenance: can anyone tell me what tools I will need?"
Incredibly a lot of OP went overboard
trying to outdo each other with comprehensive lists of tools! (Needless to say we never heard from the would-be entrepreneur again!!)
