Lately I have noticed a trend wherein OPs get cranky if the responses to a query they've made don't hew closely to their desired responses. To me, this is what makes CH interesting -- people have different takes on the questions being asked, and sometimes off-beat responses are full of interesting ideas. However, I have noticed some OPs getting kind of nasty about the free form nature of some responses. So, my question is, are they right to get upset or should they appreciate the time, thought and effort someone put into their answer even if it doesn't directly answer the question they posed? Aren't these questions part of the community, or do they belong, in a way, to the OP?
