...what? I mean someone comes here and posts a question - "which episode", "what was the name of", whatever. Then, someone doles out the answer - usually for the three hundred twelfth time, and not so much as a "thanks" in return.

I notice that these are invariably folks with no true "handle" so I am wondering if these are "once by" folks who take their answer and run, or they are otherwise regular posters who are afraid using their own name will make them look like theyre dumb for not knowing the answer.

I noticed that too. Especially with the "George's answering machine" questions, I'm starting to think the same person posts the same question once in a while just for the fun of it.
I'm on other forums, being a musician, and I find it happens all the time. It's even more annoying when someone posts a technical question about recording or whatever, and you take the time to give an in-depth answer, never to to get so much as a thank you.
People, they're the worst.

Sometimes people will not get an answer first. They might get one of the people who feel like being stupid and telling them that there are other topics for that same question. Then not answer the question, or provide a link. They will usually just say something like "how many times do people have to ask this question?", or "Why don't look at the other thread?". When they could just answer it, it's not that tough to do.

I always try to say thanks ahead of time when I ask questions, just to avoid this kind of thing.

And when I see freaks on the street, I don't stare. But I'm careful not to look away, either. I don't want the freaks to be uncomfortable.

We just need to come up with a good set of forum rules, because let's face it... without rules, there's chaos.

That's the way I weas raised. You know when I was growing up I had to be in bed every night by nine o'clock. And if I wasn't, well I don't have to tell you what happened!
