The green rep and the articulate nature of the reply of a vet member (in this case DS), the trust aspect should be crystal clear. Or in this case, clear as a green gemstone.
I’ve witnessed SteveG recently giving advice to correct a member’s post and then the following 3 posters were agreeing with the post that was incorrect, totally skipping Steve’s remarks entirely, and there was quite a bit of time inbetween responses.
Of the few given to first doing some additional reading, that portion steadily declines in direct proportion to the length of the thread. By the time a thread reaches its 3rd page, exceedingly few newcomers read more than the OP's opener.
Having a "Reply" function presented atop the thread, as does WPW here do, simply encourages such behavior.

No sense to compare static with dynamic
