Posting takes skill (kinda off-topic)


I've notices that posting isn't just asking a question (that's what you expect right?). Posts with some humour get answered a lot quicker or better even if the question is asked a million times before. Are the 'masters' getting bored of reading the same probs over and over (I know we have search) and just ignore (for a bit) the boring posts? Not that I'm complaining! I always find help here sooner or later. Just like to see the opinion.

poorly written questions are hard and tiring
especially if you have to ask several questions back to get the necessary info
and questions on say, NVIDIA acceleration, have been answered here again and again
however,
it would appear that most ppl get the benefit of the doubt most of the time

(personally, i'm so chuffed when i can answer a linux question that i don't hesitate, even if it means repetition.)
