If someone asked you a question for help and you completely ignored the question. Never responded and made up your mind not to reply.  Is this being rude?

Do you consider this rude?  Do you really try to answer all questions or only ones asked by people you know?  We all know what they say about "Karma"....

I myself try to answer all question asked if I know the answer and if I don't i will point the person in the right direction.  I never ignore any questions asked to me... "Clicks are for kids"

Just for fun...
If someone asked me for the "Winning PB numbers"-l would ignore him/her- and feel justified by my actions.

    LOL, looks like the guy asking the question doesn't answer questions his ownself.

    Now that's rude.

      it depends on context, and the arrogance of the questionnaire.  say you are in a lotto shop, and someone  says " hey you how do i fill out this $^$$% ing form? "  id likely ignore them. 

      Wwheras if they said, " excuse me could you help me fill out this form correctly? " i might actually talk to them

       

      <div_prefs id="div_prefs">

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

          Of course, we all are not the same.

          So if someone ignores somebody, so be it, there is nothing wrong with it, somebody might not like that, but there is nothing wrong with that. People might have a reason or reasons for ignoring a question or questions or even for ignoring people, growup, such is life.

          We might not like it, but ---------------

          Nobody has an obligation to neither help nor to answer people's questions.

          Just be glad whenever somebody helps and or answers questions.

Oh and last but not least.. I asked Black Apple a question and never got an answer.   Still to this day I have not gotten an answer....

              I think if you ask someone a question directed at them personally, it would be customary and courteous for them to answer you.

              If it's just a general question put out to anybody whose interested, then it's a different story.

              Maybe you weren't specific as to who were asking?

                Is right, except with some people that you just don't want anything to do with and so just have to ignore them.

                        They were all simple basic questions.  For the most part LP members have answered my questions.  There are plenty of helpful posters and knowledgeable people.   I just have yet to receive an answers from the three I named.   I was just wondering what people thought.  Thanks for the support and all the answers.  We are all on the same team.

                              With all the asking I see OGGivens doing here on lottery post. Youd think he owes some question answering.  Then again, if its not benefiting  him ...Why care
