I find using google is more helpful in finding information on AB then the search function. Google "why isn't my G. rosea eating" and you will most likely be brought to a thread ,archived or not, from AB. I google my question and just look for the AB links. As far as getting upset about repeat threads? People are taking these boards too seriously. I can see how it could be annoying, but so is dog hair and the crust that comes off milk containers. Cigar smoke and being soaking wet are also annoying. Guess what? You can't control it and all you can do is complain about it. The best way to get rid of it is not to answer it and hope people realize that they aren't getting answers because their question is so easily obtainable through other means. It's a viscous cycle that will be repeated in forums throughout the internet. It just happens and getting irked is only hurting yourself and being "mean" to newbies will only stunt the growth of this hobby.

Oh and post links! And, when you see questions about G. roseas, which you definitely will, just post this link and nothing else: http://people.ucalgary.ca/~schultz/roses.html
Don't answer any questions until you are certain this person has read this link.

If everyone who googled "How to care for Chilean rose" found a link to these boards that contained a thread that contained a link to a full description about these creatures, surely the "dumb" questions would start to decrease.
