Some of you will note that you get no response or activity when posting a new "discussion". Most of these are cases where the writer has done nothing more than cut & paste an article or information that they've found on the Internet. The information is good, but simply stating facts (in other people's words) does not promote a "discussion". It would seem to me that those belong in "News & Articles", rather than "Discussions".
If you could read the article and find some way to put it into your own words it would mean more. Relating it to your own experiences promotes discussion. You also need to ask a question or ask for an opinion. This is what gets minds working and allows a good discussion to follow.
The site is here to provide information, but discussions that involve the thoughts, opinions and experience of others is the what I find most helpful.
Has anyone else noticed this? Do you agree or disagree with my comments.
