Ok so I come here to get knowledge and to share knowledge in this wonderful hobby of ours and I keep reading posts from either new people or even long time posters that ask a ? and the very next answer is "do a search" or "if you search you will find a answer".Yes this is all true BUT I am pretty sure most people do searches on their own for questions they may have ahead of time, but that may result in not getting the answer they are looking for. If you are one to give a answer to a question with one of the above answers, in the time it took to say that could you have either not answered it due to not having any experience in that area or said "I do this .............". So all it takes is for one person to answer their ? to what they want and it is all done, or it may even spark up a new idea from others. All the info from posters is personal preferences and personal exp. and what kind of driving style people are doing to get the results they are looking for. This is a forum for ?'s to be asked, so I say ask it. If no one asked ?'s then this forum would die off quickly especially if all you had to do was "search". By asking the same ? over and over again will always net some sort of different opinion from possibly someone new. It looks like to me that 90% of questions asked on here have been answered before in one way or another over the years. So why do we keep asking ?'s, it is so we may get a new answer. It does not take a ton of time to answer a simple ? or give your opinion to something asked. That is why we are all here right? To get information from each other. I see a lot of people replying this way and it seems like someone just wasted their time in asking this ? and wasted bandwith. My ? to you whom this applies is "then why did you initially read the question?" was it because you were looking to get an answer for yourself?, because you odviously were not looking to help out with your opinion, but yet you took the time to type "just search".
So to end my rant, either post a quick reply pertinent to the question or just simply do not answer it if all you are going to say is "do a search and you will find it". If you typed "I use these ....." you would have actually said and typed less words and givin the poster some ideas.
Just my Rant
Or maybe I just slept bad last night. Who knows
