If I want to start a thread, I'm not going to do several pages of research to find out if the topic has been posted about. I'll just start it. If I want more attention on a topic that I don't want buried in the middle of a thread, or if there are two other threads with similar topics but it doesn't suit me...I'll start another. If there is exactly the same information as two other topics and I just want to piss off the critics...I'll start another. If you want to start a thread, start one.

/Dr. Rumack: You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.

Elaine Dickinson: A hospital--what is it?

Dr. Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Well, then don't feel bad when people clutter up your new, extraneous thread with cries of "repost."

Repping this. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK the repost Nazis!!!! Nothing more stifling to the natural flow of information.

Dude...the search function is fixed. It takes far less time to search for a topic than it is to start the topic itself.

How about if we use this thread to pre-apologize for future repost infractions? I, for one, would like to apologize right now for my next repost that I'm certain to commit.

I don't care. If I repost something and you don't like it....move on.

It wastes my time and the time of everyone else. So while you can feel free to post it, if you're too lazy to check and see if it's been posted before, I reserve the right to criticize you roundly for it. You don't like it? Don't post new threads.

True, but if the Original person used a ridiculous title that really did not have anything to do with the topic the search feature becomes useless..

That's a fair exception. But it seems like every week we have someone who reposts something that is literally on the front page and toward the top of the list. That's just pure lazy.

Sure... it's fine and dandy to make sure that people know that the generally accepted courtesy is to do a search before you post something, especially breaking news type stuff. That said, is there really need to crucify a double poster unless said poster is a repeat offender.

I think more threads need to be locked. This is one of them. Then, we should round the reposters and dumbposters up and put them in FEMA camps and put their families up for adoption.

That's understandable, but I can't tell you how many threads that I read about a topic for the first time that maybe has been posted before, but I've not been on for a few days and again, I'm not going to move past the 1st or 2nd page at the most to find out information whether you think that is lazy or not. Also, it seems like a lot of the most interesting threads have to start with "sorry if this is a repost"....who cares?

Yep, it's like they don't even look. You do that and you're going to hear from me whether you like it or not.

I always search, and then check page 1 and 2, but inevitably some fuckwad has a horrible thread title and manages to escape my search. Just hate to see the overly-apologetic, tentative culture develop around posting relatively new information.

Well, I think I've started maybe 10 threads over 5 years. I'm not talking about situations where the topic is already posted on the front page. But I'm not trying to talk you into not letting us hear from you. I'm trying to encourage accidental reposters into ignoring you when we do. ;)

I don't know who holds the ban button and who doesn't. I'm not trying to get lippy with anybody. It's irrelevant to me. If I get banned for these comments as opposed to some of the insulting stuff that I read on here, so be it. You can read my history (as boring as that may be), Just burned out on reading "sorry if this is a repost", as the first line to every interesting or breaking news topic.

I agree with most of what you are saying, and lord knows it's not hard to miss things here with as fast as things move at the time, but some judgment needs to be used when starting threads as well.

And I also have to say that spelling out R-E-P-O-S-T in consecutive posts is tired and obnoxious. Y'all need to knock that stupid shit off.

Dude, you're doing ok. I'm just screwing with ya. Yeah, I understand you're point about the occasional repost, (especially with obscure topics). However, on occasion it does get a little annoying when three or four people are in such a hurry to be the 1st to break a story on here that we get multiple threads on the same topic. A lot of the time the subject they're posting about is anywhere from 3-6 hours old and the individual is either too lazy or too stupid to check beforehand.
Another annoying repost habit here is when a hot subject that takes a while to develop has several threads started about it over a week or two, (See either Ty Law or the Jared Allen trade). I mean shit, we've been discussing the subject constantly for a week. Use the damn thread dedicated to said subject!
I'm sure you agree.

Absolutely. I'm not in a "breaking news" catagory of poster. I'm more in the "old dude always interested in new Chiefs' news" catagory. It is annoying when people won't even read the first page. But that's usually not the case with the REPOST insult comments that I notice.

How can anyone possibly think that is cool, clever, or funny? Or what exactly are they going for there?

I'd like to just state that I rarely look past the first page. I figure I'm on here enough that if it isn't on the first page I've already read it. That being said , if someone reposts a topic what the hell does it hurt? does it really waste your time. I don't think so. Reposts are a part of the Planet and always will be so just enjoy them. pr has a point.
