This is a common issue on every forum I've ever spent any amount of time on (and that's a lot of forums. ) Threads will usually start out on-topic but once the question at hand is dealt with, the conversation drifts. Sure, sometimes a question doesn't get answered at all, but if you are going to communicate with people over the internet, you need to be two things; 1.- persistant and 2.- thick skinned. Any newbie who feels turned off because nobody held his hand through his first thread isn't gonna last long in any forum, whether its this one or another.
