If a question is asked "in the open" (like on a non-Odeck discussion forum), why do people who don't know the answer feel compelled to respond by writing paragraph upon paragraph of stuff they do know, but that isn't the answer? Is it just a "I can't deal with not knowing" kind of defense mechanism?


I really like the Gizmodo link color better than the io9 link color. Dark purple looks so much like black (at least to my colorblind eyes) and I feel like I miss quite a few of the links on here. The lighter blue of the Gizmodo links is so much easier to pick out against black text.
