I'm starting to get the hang of OKC. At first, I couldn't understand why people took it so seriously. I'm a girl and got lots of messages, many of them I ignored for whatever reasons.
The ones I did reply to, I never made it a point to check every hour and make sure I responded ASAP.
I've made two friends on OKC, both of which I now feel obligated to responding to all of the time. It's a little uncomfortable.
