No one jumped the gun.  What you posted was not asking for discussion about castings calls in general; you referenced a casting call that you currently have up, essentially holding up a huge arrow sign saying "look at my casting call, please!!".

You never once asked for feedback.  You just complained and said you wished the number of people looking at your casting call was higher.

Inappropriate.

it's your opinion, I'm here to discuss  what motivates models to delve a bit deeper in a casting call and do a bit a of research.
NO  I'm not here to point out my casting call... my casting call was vague on purpose   its to prove a point.

So you are spamming both the forums and casting calls with nonsense.

I haven't looked at your casting call; its content is irrelevant.

If you are "here to discuss  what motivates models to delve a bit deeper in a casting call and do a bit a of research", why didn't you mention that goal in your original thread?  You asked exactly zero questions in your original thread.  None.

If the casting is too vague some people won't view it as being worth their time to look into it further. A detailed casting shows models that you have already put significant thought into the shoot and already have some of the details worked out. A casting that is just a sentence or two long looks unprofissional and poorly thought out.

At the same time many responses I get to my castings seem unprofessional. A model who I have never met, nor seen her profile will reply "interested" ... And that's it. It's not a huge deal, but if they truly were interested I would think they could send me two sentences introducing themselves.

At the end of the day some people are just lazy, either in the way they write their castings, or in how they respond to castings.
