Default Re: Rant Thread - What really grinds your gears?

The search takes some getting used to, but there are options in the advanced search that make it a lot easier to use.

The basic one is to show posts instead of threads, and to search for multiple terms using Boolean logic controls, or else search for a phrase if that is what you are looking for.

That being said, though, there should never be a rude response to anyone h ***didn't*** use the search button. Since performing the search takes 5 seconds, but being rude to someone usually takes more, spend less time and just link to the search you would have performed if you were the OP.

It's not rocket science - and there is never a need to be rude, no matter how good you ***THINK*** you are. You were a n00b once - even if you were using BBS systems on a 300 baud modem. Even if you helped develop the original TCP/IP stack - you have no right to be rude here, and rather than reprimanding the n00b who didn't search, I'm betting my savings account that the mods here will reprimand ***ANYONE*** who is rude to a n00b.
