Google it as well as using the search box on the upper right. Folks appreciate those that do their homework. smile

I think most all of us do that. To assume someone didn't google something first is a bit silly. I definitely did and I read thru what random internet people said. I just like hearing what many Fans specifically have to say about it on this site as well. Not everyone on the Org posts on all the posts that are scattered throughout google. There's some folks that I really would value opinions on topics that may only post in here once in a while.

I agree with you Omey. I am not an audiophile but am trying to learn and really appreciate the information. I don't know what I don't know, so it would difficult to formulate an intelligent question quite yet. I'm certain there are fans like me.

Always wonderful when someone's knowledge on Prince seems so vast to themeselves they feel nobody should ever be allowed to post in a Forum here or ask questions. They want to just be jerks and scare people off who just want fans opinions and thoughts directly rather than just going on Google looking for what everyone on the internet is saying. Completely ridiculous and infuriating to me when someone on a site dedicated to love 4 one another and a place that should feel safe to share your knowledge and ask questions people want to be jerks with stupid comments like "google it". To even take the time to come on a post at all to say that just to hurt someone's feelings shows a horrible arrogance. 99% of all posts you can be a jerk and say "google it". You don't because people want direct opinions and discussions on an awesome site like this!

That doesn't always work that well. Plus a lot of the hits that turn up seem to be closed topics if they make their way past the first page and are no longer active. Many are ancient topics but come up high in the list. I've used it before and still accidentally made a duplicate thread.

And the problem is not someone pointing out an identical thread.

The problem is certain people feel compelled to be absolute assholes about it when it could just be an honest mistake or an oversight. It's been an issue for a long while now and numerous people have pointed this out. Someone can politely say "there's already a thread" without adding insulting comments and calling out someone's intelligence. I manage to do it most of the time.

Getting called ignorant, lazy or stupid doesn't really excite me to visit the board

But hey that's just me.

It was an issue back when Prince.org was just an e-mail mailing list. I left the site for many years because of it. Every group will have its elitists unfortunately but you just kind of have to ignore them. There's only one really vocal one on here which makes it easier.
