    Is it me, or am I the only one that searches topics before posting a question? It seems that several times a day I see the same questions asked time, and time again. I have found that any questions that I have, regarding whatever topic, the answers seem to always be found by searching previous posts. It make me wonder if prople at that lazy not to do a bit or research first, how they ever made it this far.

    The Learning Center is also a good thing to check first before posting a question. It's probably already addressed there, and if not, Search is very very handy. I've used it over and over.

    A lot of times, I link to another thread when responding to a post or I'll suggest a search or the Learning Center. I think most people are unaware but there are some that are lazy. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt and "gentle" guidance.

    I agree that not enough people make use of the search function. Does it take a little more time and effort than just posting your question?...yes, it does, but there are a lot of times I don't even bother answering because it's a question that has already been answered over and over and the answer can easily be found.

    I really do use it, but if I can't identify the results by thread title, sometimes I give up.

    I used it quite often, and I just found out there are 18,398 members that have posted questioning if they are the only member that knows how to use the Search Feature.

    I love the search function. I have found answers to most of my questions without having to ask them.
