I don't agree or disagree with your statement.
However by answering questions that I might be able to help with or make suggestions, I have found that many of the anonymous user's get a little 'bolder' and start posting their name/link with any later questions.
Makes me wonder if maybe being a newbie, anonymous might just be a little shy at first, or maybe they are just testing the waters - to see if this Help Thing really works!
And some might be wondering if this site is worth joining, or if in the end this is really just another pay site, once you get started or get your first hit. So many sites say 'free' but end up with a screen that says we found 47,383 John Hoyt's - to see these results pay here.
And some are astounded by the results when someone suggests a site or source where they can suddenly find/confirm the research on their own.
And there are some that never respond/acknowledge anything - so you never know if they came back and checked for an answer at all.
I'll just keep on answering them when I can, because when I started out none of this online stuff - free sites,free sources, free genealogy help, was out there. It was in a library, church, town hall, family docs etc.
