Why do GLPers prefer questions?
Here's a tip on creating threads at GLP: always use a question as your thread title.

I've started tons of threads here and I've watched threads with great informative original posts sink off the front page without a reply. But, threads with questions as the thread title almost always get at least some replies regardless of the quality of the original post.

For example, if I used "always use a question as your thread title" as the title of this thread, it would sink like a stone to the bottom. But, I'll get some replies now because I"m using a question as the title.

Why do GLPers prefer questions?


IMHO, everybody here wants to show off how smart they are and answer a question.
Yeah, Whatever

This thread is a perfect example of what I'm talking about, only one person has responded to the OP and the rest are just reacting to the question in the thread title. lol

Re: Why do GLPers prefer questions?
because questions are the sign of a weak mind easily molded or it is covert to get answers to things one already knows about and they just want to see if you know to, or it is a test so as to join a vip group etc etc or even better its an outright lie to analyze or to measure peoples psychology

Re: Why do GLPers prefer questions?
The answer to this thread is fairly simple. And you're right, if this thread title was in the form of a statement, I would not have bothered to click on it.

We human beings want to help each other and, occasionally, want to learn from each other. When the thread title is a statement the possibility of a chance to actually help someone is rather remote. The chances that you might actually learn something from a thread title in the form of a statement is also unlikely because most GLP threads are not intended to TEACH. They are usually intended to PREACH.

I hope that lays the issue to rest, OP. Thank you for asking a question.
Let There Be Peace
