And one final thought on the flip side of that "search" coin. There's a TON of people that DO use the search function and can find everything that they want to know on these 10+ year old platforms. They're able to go through and read enough threads to develop their plan of action and execute it with no need to post at all.
For instance, to help cut down on spam posts, the policy in the for sale section was recently changed to where a poster needs to at least have 30 posts before they can sell something in the member classifieds section. When the AutoGuide folks checked the memberships of the site, this is what they found....
"Roughly 12K of 168K users with 30 or more posts is correct. The number may be a couple thousand more because the promotion script does not include banned and premium members"
That means that there's roughly 156,000 members on this site that have posted less than 30 times but at least at some point were actively searching, reading, etc., and that's not including guests.
LOL Keith on that last sentence........so true, and one of the reasons that I just couldn't cut it there.
