I keep seeing people post "quick" questions.

Questions are typed here and are perceived at the speed at which they are read.

Does that mean that I should read "quick" questions faster than regular posts?

Or does it mean that I am expected to respond quick?
In which case it should be quick answer needed.

I see the humor in this, imagine a Beek high tailing it back to his/her PC to post a " QUICK " question to solve an ACUTE BEEKEEPING situation.  shocked

Even if it's supposed to be a short question, the insertion of the unnecessary adjective describing the question leads me to believe that the asker isn't likely to make their question very short.

The way i look at things is, if a person asks a question and someone can and wants to answer it, they should, other wise say nothing, way waist someones time with a none answer? JMO

[...Why waste someones time with a none answer?]

Someone's answer isn't always on topic or in the direction that the orginal post started.
But those strays sometimes result in a more complete treatment of the topic.
Devil's advocate if you will.
So we may reserve the right to disregard the information, but it isn't always right to discount the value of the content.

My point was that there isn't really any "Quick" on this board.
Some of the best replies come in throughout the day (even the middle of the night if you value my replies).
To have more complete answers, one has to patiently wait until the post 'matures'.
Then again some go south and 'manures' instead.  tongue

And what is wrong with going South? I live down here and like it just fine. And I can only read at one speed so no a quick question isn't going to get me to read faster.  grin
