When you do a search and get a few thousand hits, it does matter.
I still can't agree with your position. I just searched, individually, for 'backlight' and 'power'. Came up with 307 & 500 hits, respectively. Better search criteria would yield better results, so I wouldn't say the forum is flooded with meaningless threads.
My position is, why penalize someone who has registered on the site, has a valid question, and who has searched and found no answers, simply because they are new to the site.
It would be interesting to hear the opinions of jibi, Rejhon, & other heavy users think.
