Default 95 explorer starting prob's

im not sure if it really is my flexplate. its worn, but its not in need of a replacement, no teeth missing, and it has plenty of gear life left .
what would cause the starter to just spin?
it worked off and on, then just started spinning without engaging?
is that a neutral safety switch? or something else?
any advice is good for me
the starter is brand new. (and it does the same thing as my old one)

possible causes ive heard mentioned to me:
1. wiring is bad, causing it to activate sometimes and not other time
2. animal from the muppets has taken the "go" out of my truck
3. something in the column isnt doing what it should (see my post a long time ago about jiggling the shifter to start)
4. Bad solenoid

Just another disgruntled OIF vet.
