Having previously owned a symbian phone and read and participated in the "all about symbian" forum i have to say that double/multiple postings on the same topic were dealt with very well and very respectfully by both moderators and forum regulars.
They seem to have the right attitude there, gently pointing out that there was already a topic on it and providing the link, you know, in an adult way.
Then i got an x10 and came here to do some research and look for help and frankly i couldn't be more scared to ask for anything, the attitude especially from the moderator was astounding and i often wondered if the site owners was reading his postings. It seemed that when the moderator "had a go" at someone for repeat postings then a whole group of the usual suspects would jump on the bandwagon.
Since moving on to an htc desire hd this week i can only hope that when that particular forum on xda starts to get busy the moderator won't feel inclined to beat people up just because they omitted to use the search function, there's ways of doing it and ways of not doing it !!!!
I can honestly say that i won't miss pilot one bit and i hope that he develops a better attitude once he's reached puberty
