But, because things happen another forums (as well), does this mean people can not say anything about it here?
I may be a newbie in name, but it strikes me that people are sometimes really ignorant or plain lazy by posting a question that sometimes has been posted only 2 topics below theirs.
Certain questions can be asked several times during the existence of a forum, mostly where recent developments are involved such as a new writer and how it compares to other writers. But when this question (comparison of writers) gets asked 3 times in a week (if not more) I just cannot understand why people have the need to start their own thread as if they are only out to satisfy their own needs with total disrespect to what has been discussed previously.
Aside from the annoyance it causes other visitors, it is only taking longer for the starter of the new thread to get an answer to his question, it only takes a little effort to hit the search button, enter a keyword (or few keywords) and see what it comes up with. It is a simple fact that it, in the end, can save you time finding the solution to your problem. Even when it has not been discussed in the past, you can learn from other topics still and perhaps help you define your problem better so it will be easier for others to answer your question and hopefully solve the problem.
But hey, I am just a newbie here so what do y'all care
