I've just been reading the "Anything new regarding 3GHz G5s thread" and it got me thinking. It's all very well for us regulars to slam people for not searching before posting, but is there really any point in it if we don't put in a quick link to the more appropriate thread ourselves. It's starting to get annoying seeing threads getting started by newbies, only to get slammed by these crass one-liners regarding their inability to know not to have started the thread in the first place. Let's face it, the search feature in vBulletin is a little lacking, and sure, maybe they should have persevered with there research before posting, but there's no point in us simply telling them to look for an answer elsewhere without at least doing the courteous thing and providing a link to another thread. Surely there's a rule against this, right? These people are new to our community and we should be welcoming them, not hassling them. Sorry if that got a bit ranty, it's been a long week at uni. Synopsis: provide links to appropriate threads, help the poster, or don't post anything at all.
