There are two such comments on this page alone that indicate what I am saying. There are several more in the last dozen or so pages. There us an FAQ addendum to this thread and if you had the common sense and self-assertiveness necessary to satisfy your curiosity you could search for it. The same advice given and justifiably so to the numerous "newbie" questions asked in the last few days that have created quite an inordinate amount of bickering. That is very unusual for this thread. I am surprised no moderator as yet has put a stop to it.
Wasn't there a Wiki that started a long while back which was supposed to end all the repeated asked questions and keep up to date about the C8 Series?
I might get destroyed for this, wouldn't be the first time, I have an ex. All this negativeness about repeat questions is this just a principal thing, or is it a time consuming thing? If it is a time thing, personally, I would just answer the question and move on, or don't answer at all! How long does it take for somebody to repeat typing an answer to a question? Even if it's a long write? I can't imagine it being that much of a problem, unless you type like 2 words a minute. People being lazy, or the search engine on these forums have restrictions, etc, etc, etc, is a problem, just don't answer. That's my opinion. It is a lot better to not answer then answer and the thread gets all negative and the person asking the question never returns, no? Now, if it has to do with clogging up the forum with repeated info, I can see that, but since this thread doesn't bump posts to the top, I don't see the issue. Just my opinion!
By the way, this response post took me 90 seconds. That is with an edit! I spend more time, liking people's posts then that in a session I do here daily.
