Maybe this will help.  I'll describe my rationale when I saw your question.  As you summarized

Obviously, people (including myself) have done this before.  However, as someone who tries
to contribute to this list by answering people's questions, I:
- Look for questions that are of interest to me to answer / discuss, which tend to be things
a bit more involved than the above.
- Am limited by time.

Understand it ;)  There are a lot of people on this list who are very knowledgeable and like
to help.  However, most of us do have full-time jobs and this list does have hundreds of messages
a day.  No one (I know of ;)) gets paid for answering questions on this list.  People answer
what's interesting to them.

And then, when the occasional person goes off on a "how come no one answered my question?!?!"
rant, I personally tend to block them out and not pay much attention to future questions from
them.  It's not ideal, but that's the way it is.
