Looking through different forums and checking out topics/responses, I often found that after a kind rancher(or bartender) responded to the original post and asked for more detail, the orginal poster would not respond at all or rather late. This is not a big deal but I personally felt annoying and somehow, a little bit, offended if I were the person asking for more detail and hoping to help. So I am wondering if it is possible to let know that an non-responded post, by the original poster will be removed without noticing. Or maybe there are policies already regarding this matter, I just did not know yet.
Anyway, loved and loving this ranch.
You all have a good night.

That is still not fair for those who answered the original question.
Anyway, this kind of thread is going to vanish pretty quickly from the first page if nobody posts. I don't feel this is a problem.

Satous point about the question vanishing quickly from the list of all questions is a good one - it's not really a problem. What's more, someone would have to go through all posts to determine which ones to keep and which to remove - a lot of work, and always a judgement call. And furthermore, even the fact that a question is asked and not answered provides a clue to someone who later searches the archive.

Agree, Ulf.
I've passed SCJP/SCJD with help from the ranch. Just me wishing everything's perfect here. Guess I have to wake up and live on.
