DLers who ask what something is rather than Googling to find out
What the hell is wrong with them?
Is it mostly women doing this because they were brought up on the "I don't know, I'm just a girl!" school of thought?
There would be many fewer threads if everyone Googled everything. Technically you could get just about every bit of information you needed that way, but it's just more fun to ask and discuss sometimes.
People who bitch about such questions don't seem to appreciate all the elements of conversation. It's no fun if it's treated like a courtroom where everything has to go through formal channels first.
I think those posters simply want DL to move on ,not be stale.It must be fluent,always having new threads no matter how much sense they might make.
Exactly R1,human feedback.
Yes op, it's mostly women.
In fact, this whole site is mostly women.
Very few men here.
Women are just as likely as men to look up an answer to a question online, although their areas of interest vary.
Can you guess how I came to find this out OP?
I'll bet you looked it up on Alta Vista, R5.
Human feedback my arse!
These cunts would be the same ones that simply talk to fill a silence.
I don't know which is worse: the fraus that ask for the sake of asking or the fag who starts the puerile "Have you ever sucked a cock standing on your head?"
R7. Thank you for taking the time to post. I imagine you are so busy with all of the party invites you must get.
OP. there are many google sites available on google to answer your question why people prefer to ask someone rather than googling.
You could consult those sites, or you could simply ask yourself why, rather than going directly to those sites, you posted your question.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
