"Use the search function"
Hey, everyones always telling people to use the search function and donīt post stuff if it has been posted before...well, I was wondering...what if everything that can possibly be discussed in the martial arts world gets discussed here, in say, 5 years time. Will that mean this forum would just die, because people would always find what they wanted to talk about by using the search function :jerkit2yf

Nah. Always some new stuff to talk about. And new perspectives.

No. There will be unlimited threads on various topics starting "Hay guys, did you know that ..." followed by infinite number of posts containing variations on "stfu noob" and "use the search function noob"

There's a difference between "hey, why does <insert style here> have such a bad rep?"
and "LOL HAY DO U GUYS KNOW THIS ASHIDA KIM GUY? LOL U SHUD GET HIM"More human than human is our motto.

The point is to ensure people have at least a rough idea about things that have already been covered or on which a consensus has already been reached.
You have to remember that unlike other sites/discussion forums, this one actually has a purpose and a mission. While new perspectives can always be added, it helps if you're aware of what has already been discussed so that you don't look like an ass for posting something you believe is the next big paradigm shift in Martial Arts only to find out it was posted two years ago and beaten to death with a crowbar.

What he said. Maybe worth making a sticky of this for people who do get abused?
