It's virtually impossible to answer the question since each example will probably have a different reason for having a high view to post ratio.

Might remember to make the topic TITLE something that catches the eye. You might have a great inquiry. But if it it entitled, "Need Assistance" - you'll wait for eons to get answers. Make the title specific, and you might get better responses.

I couldn't agree more with this.  It's hugely irritating to see a post with a subject like "Question" or "What's the word on..." or something similarly nondescriptive and useless.  If the poster can't be bothered to use a detailed subject/title, then why should I bother looking at it?   There's certainly other posts I've seen that had a perfectly descriptive subject/title that had lots of views and little posts, and I agree with most of the others have said for possible explanations.

And UML has a very good point about the overt bashing.  I'm active on four different radio oriented forums (and probably 8 - 10 others that have nothing to do with radio) and I have *never* seen the level of bashing that I routinely see on eham.net.  I sure hope those people don't behave on the air like the sarcastic 12 year old jackwagons that they act like here.

One reason is few people might know the answer. If I asked you,"Where could I find the optional pl tone board for a Kenwood TR-2500 ht from 1985?"

Those were optional?  I thought it was standard.

It's fun to change the tone on this handy scratchy.  Stick a screwdriver in it and turn until you get repeater squelch to open.

A lot of people are afraid of hitting the reply key.  Same is true regarding email.  I have a few friends that read my email but never reply; they call me on the phone instead.

Honestly, given the amount of drivel that sometimes floats here, I'd be happier if fewer people responded...

You just posted drivel.  Cheesy

Hey, some people just want to see what's going on--especially threads with a lot of hits--but don't care to add to the insanity with comments of their own.  Be glad!
