I agree with you 100% and I realize these irritating posts come from new posters but, what I have done in the past when first coming to a board is to "lurk" for awhile and check the archives before asking a question or for that matter, responding blindly.
What irritates me the most are the threads that obviously are intended to bring about controversy.
