Sympathisers submitted hundreds of questions to Al Qaeda deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri's "on-line interview" before a recent deadline.
Among them: Why hasn't Al Qaeda attacked the US again, why isn't it attacking the Israelis and when will it be more active in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Syria?
So far, there have been no answers. Al Qaeda's media arm, Al Sahab, announced in December that al-Zawahri would take questions posted on Islamic militant websites and would respond "as soon as possible."
More than 900 entries — many with multiple questions — were posted on the main Islamist Web site until the cutoff date of January 16.
