Often when a new member does post a topic that has been beaten to death, we'll kindly inform them that there is such a thing as a search button and that it actually works. Then, just to be extra nice, we'll find them a thread that already talks about the subject they are inquiring about.

While I agree it isn't fair to go off at new members, I do think they have to do their part of the investigation. Not everything in life can be a handout.
This man speaks the truth! We have a community of very helpful and friendly people. When someone new shows up and instead of looking around for answers they post a question that's been answered 1,000 times a month it gets old. The Mods here try to keep the attitude positive but sometimes you have to let the mud slingers sling their mud. I don't like negativity toward new members, but we like folks to be able to speak their minds without fear of bans for little or no reason.
