Why r there so many who limp? All I hear is Bet, Raise or Fold.

I am sure we have all been beaten by hands that others came in with such as 2/7, 5/10, 9/10o. We bet our hands as they should b and end up having a/k with a king on board beaten by two pair, 7s & 2s. I even looked at my folded cards & saw them turn in2 monsters. I understand over the long run the better hands and choices will win out but it sure can b frustrating at times. Another thing I am sure u have all gone through is when the cards r coming and u could b asleep and still not lose. Well I did something a few hours back as a 'look c' 4 myself & the results r good enough 2 mention, I also want 2 know how dumb the move was and would it b really foolish 2 do again? I noticed I was into 1 of those 'cannot do wrong' runs so any suited connecters and a few off suits like 3/4, 4/5 I would limp in. It was a zoom game at .02-.05c. 4 about 15 minutes I clicked on a lot 3/4 & 4/5 turned into sets & full houses after the flop. I had started with $5 and was at $23+, I was marking as many as I could I played against and near the end if most at the table I had seen and I even open with a raise almost all dropped out. So how dumb a move was this? I know it will not b a habit but that is the danger I would think, starting 2 believe u can play anything and turn it in2 something. It did feel good winning some of those pots.
