[quote]other than “can someone help me”
If you or one of the other very frequent or verbose posters don’t quickly answer with at least “What problems are you having”, and sometimes implicit “see my sig’ below” :-), then it may also appear the post was missed or overlooked.
Also, your motives are not readily apparent to the short-term observer, and this and the other thread will soon fade. It could appear that some - not randomly chosen - posters, crave any form of communication and might welcome PMs. Maybe a more explicit sig’/disclaimer like “PM me for private help, for a fee” would clarify.
[quote]those that need help probably have no business doing it at all!
It sounds like you think we’re talking about installing natural gas pipes or something.
No offense, but I think you’re using a common, not proper, definition of the word.
lacking a definite plan, purpose, or pattern b : made, done, or chosen at random . determined by accident rather than design. RANDOM stresses lack of definite aim, fixed goal, or regular procedure .
