Part of it is I think, there is a lot more info on the site, and for those that take the time to search not only here, but the net in general, can get their questions answered without starting a thread.
Then there are those that start a thread, you ask for more info, and they never reply back. Or those that ask a question that a 10 second search would have shown 70 answers to their exact question and despite people on here wanting to help, wanting to answer everyone, just don't sometimes. We all get to that point sometimes, where it's like, I don't want to type out an answer to this when I just did 3 days ago for the exact same question and searching shows it's been answer 40 other times as well.
Then comes the difference of opinions and sometimes people don't answer because they know someone is going to answer with conflicting information because that person always does, and the thread always gets divided.
How many threads do we need on Metricide to Excel conversion, it's the same today as it was 4 years ago when people started substituting Excel, it hasn't changed. Would you rather a user search and find the answer, or start the 106th thread on the same topic?
Threads on what do you feed your shrimp turn into, I'd never feed that, it has to be this much veggie matter vs this much protein, that food killed all my shrimp, this is the ONLY thing to feed shrimp, etc, etc.
