Personally, if I just wanted the hard facts on something, I could look most things up on the internet or whatever. However, my point in coming here (at least the GQ part) is:
(1) If I’m posting, then I tend to get a more rounded answer than I’m likely to find on my own, with additional tidbits thrown in.
(2) I read other people’s posts and learn about things I’d of never thought of asking.
Like Papabear said, if each post was just “Why is this?” “Because of this. The End”, it’d be some pretty dull reading. Hell, even Cecil goes off on tangents.
“I guess it is possible for one person to make a difference, although most of the time they probably shouldn’t.”
