Why do people ask questions on here that could easily be googled? I'm not talking about questions in which someone wants an opinion or personal experience but a question in which there is a definite answer. Wouldn't it be just as easy to google it and find a site that may have more reliable information?

  • the better question is why don't they use the search and see how the exact same question has been answered here a dozen or more times. even before the credits this was the case so points isn't the answer.

  • Some people don't trust google, or just don't think of it, or would rather get a personal answer, or maybe they just need to fulfill their questions quota for the day.

  • Keeps it interesting =) If it's anything that I seriously need to know about I'll go to a reliable source. If I'm just curious or asking for fun I ask on here.

  • I agree with sweetluci on this one. Google there is dozens of links to find your answer. On here you can have your answer in a matter of a few minutes.

  • Points...and there are some people who really don't understand how to use google to get the kind of answer they want. If nobody ever taught you how to do a boolean search, it's not exactly intuitive.

  • I have NO idea!  People post questions that they should be asking their Dr.  I usually just google the info for them and put it on their post.  I don't understand it either, lol.
