Same questions asked over and over by Dianne on 23 December 2002 9:46am
 
I've noticed a few questions asked here over and over again by different people, (I'm not complaining) and it made me wonder how Michael feels when he is asked the same questions over and over and over. Does he ever feel like saying, "I've answered that one 20,000 times in the past 20 years!! The answer is, NO, I am not the nicest man in the world. I'm mean, nasty and my family and friends call me Scrooge Palin . . . bah humbug to you with knobs on!"

"Here, here!"

Yours sincerely,

J. Marley and the three Christmas Spooks.

That was mind-numbing not funny Lyn, it was almost as bad as some of the jokes the children tell me at school.

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Boo
Boo who?
Please don't cry!

See what I mean? :-)

Thank you Lyn. :-)

Have to agree Dianne, I don't know whether people are anxious to start their own threads or whether they just don't read the other threads. I know I get a little frustrated when seeing the same questions repeated time and again. It's sad but I'm so keen to see a new topic of conversation then so disappointed when the same things keep resurfacing, you then don't reply because you've done so before. I do hope that for the New Year everyone will read all the other topics and cut down on repeated threads. Thus endeth the lesson.

P.S. Happy New Year

Sometimes the repeated questions are by new people joining - I know I have commented on something not realising that it is been mentioned before, it isnt easy to read through every thread before you join in, especially if the question was mentioned several weeks earlier. Do agree that we should encourage others to read first as it gives a good idea of what the chatterbox is all about, the funny poignant comments made can brighten anyones life, so they are all worth reading. but I think we will just have to give a gentle reminder if it happens again, as I am sure it is just enthusiasm to join in that prompts this happening. If we keep this sticky' by replying now and again it may serve as a reminder, thanks dianne for posting.

I understand both sides of this problem...

When I first came here, I did try to read a bit before I posted. I'm not sure if I read the whole month of November (I think I joined mid-late Nov), but I know I read at least a few weeks before. It's always nice to get a feel for what the place is all about and how things run and what topics are being discussed at the moment.

But, of course, as Lyn said, it's hard to read TOO much archive stuff, so you've gotta give the newbies a break. I still write "sorry if this has already been discussed" because I've only been participating for a little over a month now. It's about the best one can do!

Actually, come to think of it, this month passed by rather quickly! You guys are the greatest! :O)

Looks like I started a debate. Wasn't that Millie's job previously? :-)
