I don't like the anonymous questions either, but every so often there's a gem in there that I do answer. Pictures depends on who's asking and what.

What I don't answer are broad, general questions that aren't questions, but topics for an entire blog post. I'm not writing that post for the person asking the question.

As we all know an old timer AR user CAN post a  question as Anonymous. There are legitimate reasons to do so.

The questions I avoid answering are those with over 25 responses already. This question now has 26 responses.

Everything else is fair game, even the "What is  most difficult about a career in real estate?"

I skip the anonymous/no picture/utah student/professor questions unless I have a good snarky response.

I'll skip questions I don't know the answer to or can't contribute to.

I don't mind public ones, but the "what's your safety measures" I won't discuss specifics on a public question.

Thanks Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers for the mention and you're right --- it does depend.  

I believe Roger D. Mucci does not answer feline questions but loves a discussion about points, pies, puppies, photography, Pintos and philately.  

As far as Dick Greenberg he asks questions for friends --- not sure  about answers --- as Roger has told me he misses seeing Dick in this section -- Dick Greenberg, of course.

I avoid questions where I either do not know the answer, meaning a real estate question that I have no experience in yet, or that I feel I cannot contribute anything positive to Tony Lewis.  Which doesn't mean that I may not disagree, though I still feel that it all depends on how one writes that answer!

Politics - religious questions - those kids in RE school in Utah. Not in any order.

What does bother me is the repetative questions where we bust our butts trying to help someone with a problem & then the next week someone asks the same ?.  Annoying.
