    Yes, it is extremely annoying!...

    Although, bringing it up in this thread is not the place for discussion. Try raising this to the attention of the mods. It's seriously frustrating having people ask questions that could be answered by a few different ways, such as looking for it yourself or trying it out yourself. There is a place for certain questions, and there is also a place for where certain questions can or already have been answered. And that place isn't by starting twenty different threads about the same topic within a days span. Then again we are "experienced game programmers" so we are automatically inclined to help a person. I could bring up a few others, but as I mentioned earlier this is not the place to do so.

    Most of the time it's by accident... I've done it once before, pressed the wrong button.

    maybe its ppl don't know how to search for the answer to their problem instead of asking questions over and over.

    questions are good, but only when u can't find the answer yourself.
