Definitive answers? No. Discussion? Yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

We can have definitive answers to questions such as "How many Black Riders were there?"

Otherwise, we speculate, analyze, pose hypotheses, discuss, and debate. For me, the joy of this group is to find like-minded people who are not content to read the books and be "finished." I want to know more. I also just want to talk about Tolkien's works, because I can only read them so many times, and I am not "finished." Also, I greatly appreciate the perspectives of others: they see things I miss, and interpret things in ways I never would. Whether I agree or not, I still enjoy all the various points of view, and the discussions keep alive the joy I derive from reading Tolkien.

My greatest disappointment in reading Tolkien was reaching the Grey Havens and Frodo's departure and realizing "This is the End!?!? How dare he stop here!!!" I wanted the story to continue. Since it doesn't, discussing it is the next best thing.
