Hi Jim

Pardon my ignorance. I don't even know what Nabble or gmane are. If they
are "social media" then this old geezer doesn't participate and that's by
choice. Mailing lists, product specific forums, and even (to a limited
extent) IRC channels are fine.

Nabble is an interface for a mailing list. For instance you can see this
discussion in a tree view here

What's the point of "Ask LibreOffice" if each question is seen, say,
3 times in a one week period? Most questions are unanswered.
Similarly with LibreOffice forum. A user might not bother to sign up
to such a method that is hardly ever used by relevant users; and if
it goes through it anyway and no answer is provided (as it is the
case with most "Ask LibreOffice" topics), it would probably generate
a rejection response towards LibreOffice.

What is "Ask LibreOffice?" How is it accessed?

Ask LibreOffice refers to
You can login to ask or answer just by e.g. using your Gmail account, no
need for a new registration.

Regarding the comments you are quoting, I can only say that people answering
questions are volunteers (such as myself) and they can (and should) only
answer when they know an answer. If someone asks e.g. how do I use LO to
print sideways in a Mac, personally I have no idea because I never used a
Mac, so I leave the question unanswered...

Secondly since collaborating is volunteer, I don't feel obliged to step by
every day or scrolling through all the unanswered questions since my last
visit... I hope that there are enough collaborators so that at any moment a
question could be answered by someone.

My 2 (voluntary) cents.

FYI I'm not a member or affiliated with TDF or linked to this project in any
way. All my contributions are voluntary and free :)
