Not the place, maybe, but I don't know who else to turn

Gabby, why didn't you contact me ? I never look down here in the discussion forums, it's where thought goes to die... get in contact if this is still going on and if I can't help personally I will have someone who can contact you... Dale
What I stated above in my comment as a friend to Gabby was my opinion, which I plan to state regardless who likes it or if it is worded perfectly or pleases other's when it happen's to be contrary to what they wish or feel. I will refrain from attacking anyone or pointing out what I see as they're "issues" but I will state my opinion.
My opinion is based on observation and my personal interpretation of them. I believe the failures in the discussion forums are evident to anyone who looks at what I did. There are the following... in just "the Trenches" (I wasn't going to further waste my time explaining this by including numbers of all such "discussion forums" once the disparity became as evident as it was when the sums were comprised ...
Total posts to the "In The Trenches" forum : 32
Total replies to these same posts : 375
Total views to these same posts : 12,840
just in summation : every 34 times that someone looks at a post in this forum it receives a comment (this was derived dividing 12,840 total views by 375 responses)
now lets do the math a bit different let's divide total views 12,840 by the number of posts and see what the average view equals : 4,889
Yes, this is skewed logic but it is also math and regardless what we believe, numbers don't lie. Can't be fudged and if used to indicate my opinion that "thought" dies in these forums then consider this as well ...
of the 32 total posts with an "average of 4,889 views" only 13 of those received double digit replies, less than half ... and ten of those 19 remaining received 3 or less replies
so you tell me, if 4,889 views of a post didn't elicit a reply ... what happened to the the thought ? My term may be politically incorrect or ruffle feathers but it isn't mocking something successful or degrading anyone involved, it's stating an opinion. The response to my posted opinion is expected ... if someone can help me to see the error in the logic I have described here in this post I will listen and try to discuss it openly and without derision.
