Why do topics get so many views but no one responds?

I mean seriously, the view to response ratio is really bad on this website.

    Every website is like that. Would you really want a response from every single person who happened to open your thread? Even the ones who don't know the answer to the question?

    It might count unregistered people who are just reading threads and don’t sign up/log in.

    Sometimes people may just want to read the answers because they have a similar question.

    Oh, I don't know. Sometimes it's curiosity as to why the user felt compelled to click bait with a million question marks in the header. Or to see what the question was that was obviously placed in an incorrect forum. Or to call attention to a moderator that the user's name violates Terms of Service.

    Closing thread, as the OP in no longer active.
