I view many topics and its almost 99% of the time that i find these replies posted at least once, "do a search," or something around those lines.
My question is why is this so rampant? If everyone did searches then you wouldn't get all that many topics and really nothing to talk about. The whole point of a forum is to be able to obtain information from users and discuss things. If you want to know about things through a search just hit up a search engine not a forum. I have found many automotive related forums to be very unfriendly but this one seems to have a lot of good friendly users but one thing that I don't like is this. When a new user comes in asking something and all he gets is people screaming to do a search and flaming them it doesn't make them want to stick around.
Now there are exceptions but most the time people shouldn't just reply with "do a search." I hope that this issue can be addressed because I believe its a problem on this site and nobody likes getting no information or getting flamed when they post on a new site.
Thanks for listening
