i see it all the time here. those who've been on this board for a while think they're somehow better and part of an exclusive club. so when a newcomer asks a question that's been discussed, instead of ignoring it, these folks make it a point to say ''use the search button.'' if people posting repetitive questions makes you so mad, just ignore it and move on. you actually help your objective this way, i.e., to make the thread smaller. if all people used was the search button, lots of new information and insights would go unwritten.
