Topic searches and New members
A couple days ago there was a thread having to do with a gadget to clean/sort dried beans. I had no interest in the gadget but thought the topic might be be helpful. The topic disappeared quickly. Thinking to post a simple suggestion in another appropriate conversation, the search on "sort beans" yielded 92 threads and probably thousands of posts.
I have gotten to know many of you, and have enjoyed lots of conversations. I greatly appreciate DC because of those experiences, but if, before my first post, I felt constrained to research a topic like sorting beans, I doubt I'd have posted a first, let alone second time.
I'm not sure what the solution to this is but I think the question is worth mentioning in a polite society such as ours.
Edit: This is not any criticism of the moderation of the forum, but a question on how best to respond politely to inevetable duplicate or similar questions and topics.
