This wasn't toward anyone one person.. I just get tired of people gettin on here and posting a question there is already tons of threads on... It's not that god damn difficult. Use the button, that's why it's there.

Do you know understand why it's there to begin with? Honestly dude... I don't answer most of those threads because of their stupid noob mistakes even if I know or don't know the answer. It's god damn common sense man. I still use the freaking thing and I've been a member of forums since I bought my truck in 2005. Just goes to show you, even the everyday user still uses it.

B!tching? Dude, it's not like this happens once a month.. I bet a newbie joins everyday and without searching for the answer he posts. It gets old and it's a waste of time and space.

Who cares though? How is it a waste of time and space? Threads like this are a waste of time and space. Don't want to waste time then don't open the thread. I don't open noob threads. Also its not our responsibility to worry about space. We have people that do that.

You're just saying that because we had to say it to YOU so many times. The board is busy and cluttered. When people with your attitude ask questions again and again that have already been answered, you're dissing all of us.

But then why should you care? It's all about YOU, right?

And your attitude is shown in how emotional you got over somebody helping people learn how to fish for themselves. Unlike you who expect people to spend their valuable time getting the fish for you.

You are revealing yourself for what you are more and more everyday.

you dont go to a library and f**kin' yell out, "where can i find ____?!?" do you? no! so quit being such a helpless little b*tch and help yourself. it does waste time and space. most mods on small boards such as these don't get paid. so the people that "have" to do it have to go to the trouble of dealing with your bulls**t... a lot of questions asked can be found in search. if you can't find it in search, just ask.

Unless a "How too use the search feature" goes out with the confirmation email then this WILL keep happening again and again.

I look at it this way....I was a noob once and before this forum I did not know what a thread was. This was the first forum I joined and made countless noob mistakes.

I know that if they are like I was they dont know any better so i cut them some slack.

Thank you! I'm not saying don't ask questions, all I'm asking is to search first. Hell I can make the same search you claimed to have made and find results answering the questions you've asked (that goes out to all the new guys). It's not tough, I can tell you haven't searched if I open your profile and see you joined a week ago and have less than 10 posts, it's not hard to figure out when you haven't taken the time to look for yourself.

what an ***. You know, finding a specific answer to a specific question that someone has can't always be found using the 'search' function. Sometimes people want answers as quickly as possible. This is a 'discussion forum'. Talk about a waste of thread space...
