  • I had asked a sincere question about technology and got a "google it!" I would have but my only access is this phone which can't open a pdf file. Which is why I asked if someone could find the answer for me. :( Ok rant over... lol

  • Maybe because it is something the OP hadn't thought of... how many times do people come on CM asking questuions they should see a doctor about? Or responses to "am I pregnant" being people here stating to pee on the keyboard and they'll tell them?

    I don't see why most things are asked of complete strangers with no medical background in the first place... maybe they do need to be directed to webmd? Or see their doctor?

  • Because they don't know.

  • But if you dont know just back out of the question or bump it. Thats what i do.. If you put something just to put it.. your just getting points.. there are sections specifically for that.. in the just for fun section..

  • I personally hate using google because I can't always find the info I want and it's faster here so those answers annoy me. why would i want to accidentally get a virus by looking at random sites when I can ask the "know it all" community to get an answer?! I hate trying to look up something silly like "What is the opening song name for the movie ______" and having it come back as porn when my kids are right there. I don't want to send them out of the room just because they asked a question I didn't know and we are now looking up an innocent topic that turns into a blow job photo compilation I couldn't close fast enough!

  • Maybe they dont know, you shouldnt get mad over that, not everyone knows everything that you need to know.
