Dear Alice,

Do you "really" read all questions that have been sent to you? I mean, I have sent many and many good questions that have never been answered before. And I was pretty confident that once you read them, you'll answer. I mean, they were interesting, important, and apply to a lot of people. So what's the deal? Do you indeed look at every one of them?

Dear a long time viewer,

Yes, indeed! Every one of your amazing questions is read — the site gets anywhere from 40 to 70 every day. Sometimes they are re-read, and they're always saved in case they can be answered in the future. For sure, it is as frustrating to be unable to answer all of your questions as it is to not have your question answered. However, it's possible that readers find the process of composing and submitting a question helpful — even if it doesn't receive an online response. You might find your answer to a similar inquiry in the Q&A archive, which has grown tremendously over the years. Think about where else you might be able to go for assistance; you can try your teachers, friends, parents, health care providers, library, or a counselor or social worker for more information!

More questions will be answered each week in the future, and the site may even expand to better serve readers. Until then, stay tuned — and stay talkative!
