English term or phrase: Why those received help do not grade the transaltion?
So many people asking for help for English>Chinese translation but only a few gave Grade, it is not fair for translators who offer free help.
Please do grade the answers by following the Proz.com instructions.

Explanation:
This doesn't happen only with English > Chinese questions ...!!!

I think that at least 50% of the people who post questions here never bother
to come and read the answers !
They ask some silly questions (I'm talking about questions posted as "easy
ones") out of pure whim : "Let's see if these translators are for real !" ...
Then they forget about it as quickly as the idea first entered their minds !
Even if they read the answers later on, it is obviously more fun not grading
them than doing so : "Let them wait for grades !"

All this boils down to just one thing : "Human nature !" What else is there to
say ?!

Take care and don't get upset over "small things" ! People won't change !

Why why why???


Explanation:
Hi Carol and everyone else

Luckily there is no money involved.
For several years my duty in the shipping company was to recover debts, large and small, from shipowners. There were quite a few of them who "came, asked and never bothered to read answers".

The pity is there are prozy colleagues with profiles etc. who bother to ask five questions at a time but then forget to react.
