This is why I never post here anymore. What good does it do to have rules when the search box

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Warren Stupidity (a host of the General Discussion forum).

doesn't work? I searched for that thread before I posted it. Just makes me look like an idiot. I'm done. Vent over. Back into hiding, until the next whack-a-mole. GRRRRR.

2. Nah, it's no biggie. I just will refrain from posting. If it's that important to DU, they will

find a way. If not, they just won't benefit from my posting. Tired. Have MS. You all carry on without me, and those that are worried about duplicate postings can pore over them with glee.

3. lol.. I almost never post stuff, because there are so many here who are on top of everything,

I assume whatever news I come upon elsewhere
has already been seen here on DU.

But you're not the only one to post duplicates
sometimes and if somebody is giving you a hassle
just ignore them. We are allowed to be human.

4. I did a site search using 'Christopher Allen Simcox', and the first two items were

 

your OP and the other one. Both on page 1 of LBN, one locked.

I don't think it is personal.

6. LBN Hosts and its avid readers are notorious for being

anal retentive...

Don't take it seriously.

Seriously.

12. Just because the Admins have installed a stricter SOP in LBN than other forums...


... it does not mean that LBN Hosts and DUers are anal retentive.

8. Have you tried advanced search?

however when putting search terms especially if cut and pasted make sure there isn't a space left at the end or beginning of what was pasted that will mess with it, you'll get nothing

9. I pretty much don't post LBN any more.

 

Too easy to miss someone's post or the powers that be decide it is not LBN. Not worth the effort, imho.
