    Why is that so many people ask for help and they never provide an update after suggestions and help is provided... it is frustrating to me.

    And everyone else who contributes!

    Unfortunately some people expect instant, accurate and easy answers within microseconds of posting inadequate information, and wonder why the first few replies to their posts are a barrage of questions (mostly basic ones that they should have given us first)

    Grin and bear it, as the problem will never go away

        Happens all the time, a post reads Urgent Pls Hlp or similar, a mod edits the title, the regulars ask a load of questions and a week later the original poster answers one of the questions and demands instant help.

        My personal gripe is the number of people with SBS 2000/2003 issues who don't tell you if they are running standard or premium, so you don't know if ISA is involved or not. And the ones who won't use google. And the ones who respond to every suggestion with "Tried that". If you've tried it TELL US IN THE ORIGINAL POST.

        Rant over.

              It's one of the most problems common of forums I think...
              People can't find the respect to simply reply to a post they made. An other option is that they post it on multiple forums and then simply they forget it.

              Personally I hate it too.
