Most folks have a sense that an FB reply would be faster than doing a google search. Just don't be an ass to your response lol

The Facebook group has a search you can use that will only search within the group as well. I use it quite often and it works great and is very fast
You sir are a rare breed then...lol...Glad some people are on it!

I know, I know but there are people that are slow... I'd prefer that the FB and forums have a more positive environment.

I've seen this on other forums, most members feel that they are elite and know everything. Plenty of people get discouraged in this thing, just saying.

I use that too lol, very useful finding stuff buried

Unfortunately common sense isn't too common. Some of us grew up with encyclopedias, the dewey decimal system, a library card, Yellow Pages, and Chilton's Manuals. Some grew up spoon fed.

I've come to the conclusion that this is one of my most favorite web links EVER.... Let me google that for you

I moderated for ScionLife, NASIOC, and quite a few different FB pages... the which intake is best, what springs are best, what light bulbs do I need, what exhaust is that?... those questions never go away no matter how many times they are asked. At this point I just send them a masked link to: http://tinyurl.com/2g9mqh (unless it's something I have a link saved for).

I dont want to add fuel to the fire but i guess the answer you are looking for on why some people reacted that way is Etiquette.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etiquette

I have also been around for a while but capital letters and exclamation points just translates comments to something else.... I apologize if I offended anyone... :)
