I see all kinds of discussion threads from people seeking answers:
Should I ride the train at night?
How is this neighborhood?
Where should I go to do ______?
How are the schools in ______?
And many more.

How did the .02 you got from City-Data Forum help your decision? Did you find the replies to be correct or worthless?

Fill in the blanks: I started a thread about ___________. People told me to do _____ and _____ and _____. I decided to do ___________ and it turned out ________________.

I started a thread about looking for a decent south side neighborhood. People told me to check out Ashburn, Bronzeville and Washington heights. I decided to move to Washington heights near the borderline to Beverly and will be closing soon.

Thanks! Once I learned to tune out certain comments and/or advice the site became plenty helpful.

Yeah that and I think a lot of people get their advice and leave the forums. It seems like many people don't stick around and become regular contributors.
