I've noticed on a lot of trouble-solving websites, not just this one...
People will often write in for help demanding/begging for a answer to THEIR problem off total strangers. Strangely enough many strangers will indeed help them despite their poor communication skills. The bit that really bugs me is when a whole bunch of people chip in and offer a variety of advice and there is absolutely no follow up from the person that originally asked the question!
It doesn't take much to say "thanks, that really helped joe, cheers for the advice! " or even a "thanks anyway but I'm still up to my neck!"
It would also be great to help people new to finishing to learn which of the suggestions were followed and the success or failure of these.
I guess some people think their time is more important than the guy next door, even if he's trying to help
