But you have already understand what I mean.
Yes, I do agree that users should search before posting... nothing annoys me more than another user posting "my router shows red error that it's not operating on default cpu frequency" or "openvpn udp is not working on routeros v7", for the millionth time
But on the flip side, we need to understand why not every user does use the search function in a perfect world sense. It's called path of least resistance. Besides for the fact that the forum isn't designed/coded to encourage users to search before posting, the search function also needs to sift through hundreds-of-thousands of unique threads, and that it is not always easy to find the perfect solution to every problem as every situation is unique in some way.
It's easier (and often quicker) to ask a question and receive a reply that is directly related to your problem. If you understand this concept, your immediate response should not be anger as then you're going to generally be angry most of the time you spend on these threads because we're dealing with something that's basically impossible to ever enforce absolutely unless the forum code is changed to incentivize users to always search first.
There are lots of users like you & I who enjoy browsing this forum precisely for the continuous traffic, seeing new posts and having interactions with users about problem solving etc. So it's even better if those people (like you and me) can welcome those new users with helpfulness and be a part of building the MikroTik brand into a more reputable one associated with a helpful and friendly community where productive responses can be found, than a place where people are even too scared to even post their questions or avoid the brand altogether because some users with 7000 posts and "forum guru" status is allowed to bark at new users questions with stupid analogies discouraging interactions, effectively representing the company in a way that is ultimately detrimental to the brand and overall sales and perception. The truth is, your contribution makes that kind of difference in the big picture, so try to make it count in a more positive and constructive way is all I'm saying. You don't have to listen to me, but you also aren't going to stop me from stepping in and pointing out your obnoxiousness whenever it rears its ... head, either. You'd have to get me banned in order to achieve that
Anyway this is all derailing OP's questions and has nothing to do with the subject of this thread. Hopefully this can get back on topic now I'm done squabbling with you , got better things to do with my time lol
