^I always run searches, but not every question has been answered or there might have been very few responses to a particular question
Even if I did repeat a question that has been answered in another thread, I don't see what the big deal is. Most of the questions I ask do not have a right or wrong answer, which means it never hurts to get more responses. If you don't feel like answering, then just ignore the question. Why waste your time posting something like that?
