stupid "answer a question" system
Authored by: j-beda on Aug 26, '13 08:56:36PM

Boy - that "answer a question before we let you see the page" it really annoying. It may prevent me from participating in this forum in the future.

Every time I click to read the comments, I get thrown to the start of the comments, and they are all blanked out, and I have to page back up to the top and answer some stupid survey questions, which I am now just selecting the first option, thus poisoning the collected data, before I can get to reading the comments.

If you are going to have this shitty system, at least don't make me page up to answer the stupid questions - bring them right to my on the first link and have me jump to the comments after I've given you the data.

If this keeps up, I will end up no longer reading any of the comments and thus also no longer add any of my own comments, and I cannot be alone in this type of behaviour. No readers will mean no submitters and the value of this will greatly decrease both to the site owners and the wider community.

Please rethink how this is implemented. I fear the current system will lead to the death of the Mac OS X Hints brand.
