I designed it myself.

Why didn’t you answer my question? Why did you reply to me in private? 

If I didn’t answer your question, I probably didn’t received it. Try again. 

I publish some answers and I reply in private to others. If I had to publish all the questions I receive, this blog was filled with “what’s your name?”, “other personal stuff” and questions to which I reply simply with “I don’t know”. 

I have no fear to say “I don’t know” in fact I say it quite a lot, but this is a blog, and people read it for things other than just I-don’t-know-posts.

Sometimes instead, I just click to “publish” or “answer privately” without think so much.

I just asked you a dumb question and your reply was really sarcastic, why are you so mean?
