We have several questions getting a lot views, few of them have a high number of votes, but most of them barely have votes or doesn't have any vote.
Despite of that, several of these questions have got "me too" alike answers and follow up question postes as answers and have been protected not allowing new users and network bonus users to answer them.
Some of this user might get or not a moderation comment giving feeback about how the site works, it's very likely that due to the low participation in moderation activities or any other reason many of them didn't get the comment.
