[rant]I HATE EXPERTS EXCHANGE. Half the time I search for the answer to something on Google I find that the first or second link is to Experts Exchange. WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A SOLUTION OR THE ANSWER TO A QUESTION?!!! You can find most answers on the internet without any issues. The internet is meant to be about freedom of speech, freedom of information and accessibility to all. Experts Exchange go against all of that. We give out free information on here to anyone that asks for it, most people on the net do. I just think its wrong and every time I see a link for Experts Exchange in Google I feel like getting a hammer and chisel and hacking those pixels out of my screen that contain the link and text. B*@$*!€s!!![/rant]

Sorry, I had to vent.

That happens to me all the time...sometimes I think that there isn't really an answer, they just have the question, and you pay to join and then they say "do you want to submit an answer to this question?" :rolleyes:

Sorry
The Internet isn't MEANT to be anything. It is a communication protocol, nothing more.

Paid solutions are available for people without the knowledge or patience to search for their own free answers.

um... i don't like experts exchange or anything, but when it does pop up in a search result it usually has the answer... just scroll down past all the crap telling you to sign up to where people's comments are.
i second that. It took me ages to spot it, but in fact for many things i look for now the answers are indeed there, at the bottom of the page.

Same, i've almost always been able to see the answer, just scroll down a lot. Half the time it's not answered though.
