Is it just me.... Or does it seem like 90% of people who post questions to the forum don't do even remedial research before posting?
I always research issues deeply before asking any questions. Am I just strange in this way?
Is this a generational thing? Or is it a trust thing? A respect thing?
I think it's rude to ask questions that have been asked dozens of times before. It shows a lack of respect for the people I'm asking the question of. It's like not paying attention in class or in a meeting, and then asking everyone to repeat what was just said.
I am not willing to trust what anonymous people on an Internet forum say unless I have some basis to trust them. If I've done my own research, then I can figure out if the person answering my question has a clue.
