Catchy Title?

Many times I will get a notification that a new discussion has been started or I am searching for something to post, and I will find a catchy title. Seems by the title it is something I might be interested in. But after reading the post, there is much to be desired. I almost feel like the poster teased me. The poster never asks a question, never states his opinion and sometimes it has nothing to do with the title. It kind of feels like a false start! What a waste of my time! How often does this happen to you? When this happens will you add something to the discussion or just continue your search?

I don't search for discussions, as all my friends' discussions come to my mail box and it's more than I can keep up with! But I'm very frustrated when I'll see a catchy title--I can't think of one just now--and it turns out they don't reveal at all what their own opinion is, it's just a one line discussion with no meat in it.

Hey dragon, those are the exact one's that I am talking about. I had to turn most of my notifies off as sometimes in a couple of hours I would have 60 or 70 discussions. With a huge portion of them being some guy asking oneliners that require one word answers. Turns out that one of the discussion from the same guy would be that he is trying to post 42 discussions for payout! Ugh!

LOL! Hey, I'm guilty of that once, too. I did post one that said I wasn't going to make payout and the responses helped me make it but it was a valid discussion and I learned how people cope with that situation. It was interesting to me! But yes, I had a guy like that with only one liners. I turned his notifications off. I'll check it back on soon to see how his conversational style has progressed!

At least you have a point! Some you can't even seem to get that much out of it! Thanks for responding my friend.
