>>I agree with you on some counts though - a lot of problems could be resolved with a simple search.<<
This is how people find this board in the first place. By searching for help. At least that's the way it was with me. Personally I am afraid to even post a question half of the time. It has gotten so rude on the C/C++ boards that you don't even want a response. I understand about the begging for homework anwsers wich happens often, but lately I have read what I thought were some legitimate questions for a newbie like myself, and just watched that person go down in flames. They are always new people, and they never come back. Can't say I blame them.
