if questions go unanswered, or are answered after long delays, then the likelihood of the person persisting with D is diminished.

Is this a big problem with D? I don't do stack overflow often, but I try to check in every few days to check the D tag, and I usually see answers there by the time I click it.

I don't think it is a big problem, 28 unanswered questions out of just over a thousand isn't a terrible stat, but most of those unanswered questions seem to have been there for months. About 1/2 of them have an answer, but are not marked as such. Often the question isn't clear, or the answer is given as a comment.

I'm not saying that the D community is unresponsive, quite the opposite is true, my main point was that one cannot dismiss the value of discoverability.
