    When we start threads with questions on a constant basis --maybe there is a problem somewhere. What would cause a person to average 4 7/11 question threads per day? I have questions about the questioner. :) It's good to have a curiosity about life,but it starts to be an issue when an individual is overly inquisitive over a long period of time. One starts to wonder if said person is really digesting material or just asking for the sake of asking. Any answers to my questions? LOL!

    I think I know who you are talking about but I think it's good to have questions starting a discussion. I'd not always think of the questions that are posted but I definitely enjoy reading the responses and it makes me think. I have seen that some are annoyed by this poster posting just questions but I do appreciate it. :)

    I think said poster is trying to convince himself his theology is true, and not liking the answers he is getting continues to post the same basic question worded differently.

    I have explicitly asked this question before, but I still have no idea.

    Thats a good question! :laugh:

    BTW Rippon, if the questions are repetitive, then you have a ground for reporting the poster to the forum Moderators and let them deal with it. :type:

    Depends who it is. Some people are naturally curious and have tons of questions. Why not ask them and learn the answers?

    Some are young and just don't know the answers.

    Some are older and just being annoying.

    Some are like me and forgot they asked, forgot the replies, and have to go through it all again. I (seriously) have some memory issues and get odd looks because I do the same IRL...and sometimes it's only a couple minutes later.

    Ditto - mine is more short term

    I can tell you the federal Stock number for the engine of jeep from 40 years ago, but for the life of me, I cant remember what thread I may have asked a question in. (must be all the gray hair)

    Haaaaaaa....that sounds all too familiar! I was asked for an address and phone number months ago. I rattled off the address and phone number of somewhere I lived before I even had kids and wouldn't have remember had I tried, woman looked at me really odd and I went oooooohhhhh. LOL I turn to DH a lot to ask stuff. Sometimes my own age or phone number. And of course there's the fun times when I go down the list trying to chew out a kid by name and finally have to just say in exasperation "YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!" Which with two of them inevitably leads to them twinkling their big eyes and looking up innocently, saying "no mommy, what's my name?" in an attempt to diffuse the situation. They know it works...even at 16 years old.

    Luckily I'm female and that in itself gives me permission to spend money on hair dye without feeling guilty. :saint:

    Homework. I'm thinking someone's in Bible College and wants folks to do his research for him. :type:
