    ...weird

    Im pretty new here, and was wondering if anyone else feels like i do....i feel like if i post a question that has been answered just once in the last century, im going to get my head bitten off.....besides the fact that the search function is sub par at best, most of us asking questions dont know the answer to them and thats why we ask!....i just dont get why the experts get mad at people for asking questions, when theyre choosing to answer them....?

    aha ok im done,

    Whats your question?

    If it is something that you searched for and came up empty on, I see no reason why anyone here would get angry at you for asking it.

    Don't take it personally, Its just that after you have been a member for a while, people keep answering the same questions over and over and it can get annoying. Like I said, don't take it personally, and just be glad that we don't have as many aholes as NASIOC does.

    The problem is that most people ask one of these questions that will bring up a million search results, or better yet they are answered in a sticky so they don't require search at all:
    1) How do I get more power from my car?
    2) Which exhaust is best?
    3) Which BOV is best?

    Those are 95%+ of questions from new members, which they could easily find an answer to. So just don't post any of those questions and nobody will bite your head off. Look at it this way: By posting your questions, you're asking people here to take up time from their day to answer them. If you're not willing to take a few minutes and look for the answer yourself, then why should people here spend time answering you?

    I've noticed this here also. I find if I don't want to read the question again I simply don't open the thread. or if I do open it and find it is another question asked a million times before, I close the link.
    just sayin....

    With that logic, shouldn't you have saved your time by not creating this thread complaining about this subject? I find the complaining just as annoying.

    Also according to your own logic, if people are complaining about others not searching, why do you read there posts at all? You could just hit the back button like you are asking others to do.
