Isn't that what we are all here for anyway?? To try and help each other???? I don't think we need to be opening these and giving people crap for asking questions, but thats just my opinion. Sorry to rant.
Actually, yes those poorly thought out threads do matter, because then when someone actually does search, they come up with 50 threads that say "I didn't search but how do I _____" and now have to sift through a lot of BS to find the thread that actually contains the information. If those threads didn't exist, it would make the search function much more useful and effective.
You're right, it's not up to Susan to decide who gets to make a thread and about what, her suggestion was to make it less necessary for to create threads out of ignorance or laziness. Also, pay attention, this is in the site suggestions sub-forum, where it should be, it's not giving anyone crap, it's just her suggestion to make the site better.
