I find it extremely odd that the people who come to this site merely to complain never seem to post threads or attempt to answer queries, so just why do they bother? Perhaps they are needful of answers they cannot find on AB but would like things neatly tied up with headings so they don't have to go through other threads to find what they need? Half the fun of this site is being able to spend a little free time reading peoples' comments and answers, and there is nearly always something interesting to read and information to find out, especially the answers posted by Trevor and JimC to name just two, who go out of their way to give explanations for their answers. Everything you read is knowledge and you never know when that knowledge could be helpful for future crosswords, quizzes etc. or just for the fun of knowing.
I really don't believe that itsashame, Cleopatra, Mr. Griffin, milder or Frustrated set up this site, unless they are pseudonyms for "Ash" who apparently did, so how can they possibly know what that gentleman/lady's intention was when he/she did? And what right do they have to try and change something that is a way of spending a pleasant afternoon or evening for the vast majority of us in order for it to conform to the criteria of AB, which, although at times is interesting, most of the time is boring, unpleasant and downright rude to the people who find the need to start off their questions with an apology for having had to ask. There is absolutely nothing that says you have to read the threads posted, if you open one and it is not to your liking it is a matter of seconds to close it and move on to the next, or leave the site completely. Unless there is something fundamentally wrong with you, you read because you want to not because you have to.
