  •  Not to mention the time dynamic. (none)
    There are people who obsessively refresh every minute looking for fresh content and people who come by every day or every week to check in.  It can be quite surprising to post a comment and come back to the denouement of 300 people jumping down your throat, asking for clarifications, cursing your silence, and then deciding that you were a vicious troll because you haven't defended yourself yet.

    •  Can Happen to Anyone (none)
      It happened to me yesterday.  I posted a comment, and when I came back hours later, after taking my uncle (over whom I have power of attorney) to the doctor, I come back home and find out I refused to answer somebody.  I try not to do that if I do a post, but sometimes it's unavoidable, especially if you're less obsessive than me and some others.
