Dear AskMe Wicca Experts,
I am an expert in this category myself and have recently spent sometime answering insincere questions from christians who are only using the AskMe service as their pulpit. Now we have a question from a Moslem. Did any of you who answered this question receive any negative or preachy feedback from the Moslem?
Also, as folks have to register with AskMe to use the service I have decided to click on their AskMe name and take a look at their profile before answering any public questions. I don't like be condemned for my faith and feel it is rather hard that these folks seek us out for this purpose. I do hope no pagans or wiccans are playing these games with the experts in other religious categories. I feel that we are bit more noble in nature than that.
What ought we to do when we feel that answering a question is pointless because the questioner is not sincerely seeking information?

I liked the ignore them and they will go away idea. But it seemed to have little affect. I don't know if we didn't try it long enough or if because some one always broke the silence and had to make a comment. Perhaps it might have worked with time.
Merry part. (:K

Yes, I like that. But how do we know when someone is sincerely seeking to information? It is a puzzlement!
