Hi Richard, I suggest that CP is "reaping the wind" of its laissez-faire culture.

I'd guess "word has spread" (and the search engines put CP front and center) that CP is a "soft touch" ... imho, it is, compared to SO ...

QA posters can, and do, post anything without lifting a finger to even select a few relevant tags.

I used to raise the issue of requiring posters to fill out a simple form before their post was published: gave up on that after several tries. So, you have the spectacle of, often, multiple solutions/comments posted that beg the OP to clarify what their question is about.

Someone may respond to a question with a comment asking for clarification; that doesn't stop other responders from posting what they think are solutions.

Note how few MVP's actually contribute to QA; note how the C# language forum has drifted into being yet-another-QA, with posts about language issues scarcer.

You may think I am complaining ... I'm not. I enjoy responding to questions with what I hope are answers of the same quality as the writing in my book Addison-Wesley published (30+ years ago).

And, I treasure my (peripheral) involvement in this remarkable community !

Most valuable, for me, is learning from people like you, Richard McCutcheon, OriginalGriff, and others, who are so broadly/deeply informed, and up-to-date on all the latest/greatest.
