People are on daily here. If you're not getting responses in a timely manner, it may be that you need to look at how you're phrasing your question.

- Is the information/advice/help that you are seeking clear?
- Have you included all pertinent background information?
- Is it legible?
- Was it a wall of text or broken down into comprehensible paragraphs?
- Is it polite and non-judgmental?

I'm not saying that your posts (I haven't seen any that I know of) are doing any of these things, but that can often be a reason that a post doesn't get any/many replies.

It may also just be that whatever it is you are asking about is not something that any of the other forum users have much experience with or feel that they can help you with.

Have you tried looking at the various sub forums? Debating Moms is a good one for getting into deep conversations, for example.

Some conversations do have the back and forth within minutes... some take hours or days. It depends on who is on, what is being discussed, and how cooperative COM is at the moment. There tend to be 'lots' of glitches here for many people (threads disappear on me all the time and today pages are loading REALLY slow).
