That just happens sometimes. I become a little dissapointed too. To me it seems that they weren't all that serious in the first place. Good luck to them then. Or they just do not bother replying that everything came out o.k. I wish that they would too.

Just how it goes.

I know how you feel, and I am sure that many of our members have experienced the same thing.

I have also seen that some people will wait a few days or so and post back to it asking the poster if the recommendation was successful. Some even suggest an alternative method.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

I get dissapointed when people rush in, ask for help, and can't find decency to say thanks.. Or even point out if whatever they asked for actualy did help solving their problem.. :thumbsup:
I on the other hand, sometimes I see topic that really does interest me. I'd like to reply but can't find right words.. It's more like writers block.. :flowers:

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"

It just goes with the territory. Just like when you spend some time to help someone out, and not only do they not post back saying that it worked/did not work, but they never post back.

Just like a teacher who has a student that may never say "thanks", it is a warm feeling when they do :thumbsup:

Well maybe some will see this thread. Then realize that it would be great if they would reply one way or the other. In the long run it would be helpful to those helping and also to those members looking in. So everyone can learn from it. Since I'm sure there are those that garner knowledge from threads if the situation applies to them. I know I have. :thumbsup:

i really appreciate everybody's reply to this...

it does make me feel better about this...

im thinking that mebbie some of our posters hit several
self-help boards and just pay attention to the ones that
reply the fastest.

thanks!!
