    I prefer the answer short and sweet. If I have a question it is because I have already searched around a little and could not find it. When the answer is short then it usually will be the last and correct piece needed to fix the problem and I can take the information I have already obtained on my own to do the rest.

    i like the answers that u kinda sound like a jerk and the person asking question gets a little sad
    but it gets to the damn point
    reading all these people ask same questions goes no where till u find the forceful answers that settle things once and for all

    personally i am amazed you have time to read posts let alone reply to most of them, what is there 500ish posts a day? the urge to go mad and tell people to search must be massive, and the search works well on this site unlike some other sites i know where results come back as gibberish, loads of FAQs to read that makes searching specifics easy.

    some people need to be "spoon fed" because they struggle to understand how to do whatever, so need the extra 1 on 1, some people are just plain lazy
    well i post around 100 - 200 posts a day, and since this forum only gets support questions, thats all help, or staff posts, or silly tihngs like this

    i also get on average 2 new AIM, and 3 new MSN friends a day, and about 14 pm's a day

    its not the most fun, but someone has to do it

    I like long answers, but only because I learn more and hopefully won't have to bug anyone for follow-up questions
