    ...does it just get insanely irritating when you see thread after thread like:

    'Should I use Private or Public Proxies for Scrapebox?'

    or

    'What is AMR?'

    I know I'm just a 'noob' but it drives me insane - I hate to think how you lads (and ladies?) must feel!

    Would a 'Please Read' sticky post atop each board entitled: 'Read this and SEARCH before posting ANYTHING!' slow down the congestion? It seems to be the common answer that BHW members post when these threads rear their ugly heads so perhaps it should be the first topic people see on the boards?

    Food for thought.

    What would drive me even more insane, is a thread like this opened in "Black Hat SEO".

    can't be as annoying as people writing random questions, that they don't really need to read in the wrong section, i think the "does this annoy you?" threads should be in the lounge

    Point taken.

    I'm glad you took the time to comment though mate, as I've noticed a bunch of your ScrapeBox AA lists - which are great by the way and much appreciated - get pushed pages and pages back into oblivion because of posts that could have been cleared up instantly by using the search function.

    I'm well aware of the faint tinge of irony that comes with highlighting this issue in such a thread yet I weighed that up against the thought that maybe - instead of flaming noobs in their freshly posted threads, as so many members tend to do - posting this may a) cause a little 'notice' to appear stickied atop the boards or b) at the very worse, encourage each newbie that reads this to think twice and maybe do a little research before extending their hand and asking for it to be held.

    I can assure you that this thread won't be the most inane that's posted today under 'Black Hat SEO'

    Thanks, mate.

    If someone who has the ability to move this thread there could do so, that'd be brilliant. :)

    Greatly appreciated! :)

    It's my fault for airing an opinion as a newbie on a forum.

    I don't know what I was thinking :)

    You were probably thinking Winchester had his pseudo-mod shoes on :)

    You make a fair point OP, but a few things:

    1) This should be in The Lounge
    2) People who post dumbass threads don't read stickies
    3) People who read stickies and are dumbasses will ask questions anyway
    4) Info in IM isn't static - quite often an answer to a question a year ago will be irrelevant today.

    What a considered and articulated response, Meathead.

    Thank you for that!

    I understand that I have clearly posted in the wrong area and in doing so, have done a lot to dilute my original point. What you've mentioned in those 4 points above (particularly point #4 itself,) is spot on and I appreciate the response. :)
