And you needed to make a thread complaining about it....why?
Think you're special?
With a big topic like that, I could imagine that 8 or so people all decided to make a thread on it at the same time. There's just nothing you can
do, no way to check, if someone makes a thread, while you're typing away making a thread.
Too many people treat ATS like it's FB or Twitter. They almost always have a link and a line or just the link and NOTHING of personal opinion. It's
like sharing a FB status to many anymore.
Also older members who I won't name but if you are on the boards enough you know the culprits, well they LOVE to say "I used search" yet you know
they didn't. Those are the obvious attention seekers and there are a few who have no excuse other than they need attention which is sad. It's the
internet people don't take it so seriously when it comes to stars and flags, you can't keep them!
I always check the recent posts page and the forums the thread would go in before I post. I don't post a lot of things because SOMEONE always beats
me to it! Many forget this site has members from all over the world so if something happens in say Russia, like that meteor, of course it will be
posted before you wake up in California!
I also love those who blame the search engine. If you know how to search you'd have no problems. Many just blame search. If you use KEY words in the
search for your story it comes up. It takes less than 3mins to check all the places I mentioned to see if someone has made a thread on it. Why be lazy
then complain when your thread is closed.
