Q: Do the writers for echinacities use our questions for article inspiration?

Quite often I am finding articles on the main site that seem to be an answer to the questions asked on the forum. I don't mind... infact, I think it's kind of cool. Hopefully, however, they are researching the topic and not just blowing smoke with their thoughts and opinions.

I think they are, which good sometimes and just fluff the rest of the time.
To use one of many examples was an article about business dinner etiquette that seemed to be lifted almost entirely from a Mr. Tibbles answer on a post about toothpicks.

it goes 2 ways some people post questions based on an article and the writers write or re-post an old article based on a question

Every now and then there's a really intersting discussion that gets started. Sometimes I find something on here that inspires my own writing! The cat's drawing from the best on here. Maybe he should write about Chinese pretending to be foreigners on the interwebz.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
