This has absolutely nothing to do with conformity, nor are my "panties in a bunch". This is something that Moderators and The Admins encourage (checking for old threads in the search engine before posting a repeat thread), especially with newer users who may, or may not be familiar with the rules, and practices here. No big.
If you have a suggestion for the site you'd like to make, check out the site suggestions/questions threads.... If you have a grips with something/anything, check out the rant, rant, rant threads.
In the meantime, it's suggested and maybe even recommended, that you please looks to see if there is an existing thread for the topic you may want to post, before posting something and creating a duplicate.
As well, you should also take a few minutes to read the Rules & Regulations for the threads (and really, the site in general). Just to make sure you know what's acceptable, and not (there aren't many "rules" per se).
SkyNet is the Moderator for this forum now (and a damned good one, at that) - He can educate you further if you felt inclined to PM him with any questions you may have.
