Thanks! I really appreciate the kind words. When a question has been asked 500 times we write a faq since we figure that if 500 people had the question, 500 more might have it as well. So, sorry if our pointing you to the faq's is such an inconvenience for you.
As for searching, it's standard forum etiquette (which you'd know if you were an active member of all those forums "around this internet thing.") The search bar isn't put there just for moderators to use to search and then post links for everyone. It's there for everyone to use.
All your questions (in your other threads as well) could have been answered by simple searches of the forums and the faq's as they have been asked many times before. I don't frequent pinstack, but I'm pretty sure they prefer you to search there too before posting. JSanders and I both nicely answered your questions (with links) and then asked you to search the forum and search the faq's for more info. Many hours have been put into the faq so that answers to questions can be obtained quickly and easily by forum members.
Hope that clears things up. Thanks for calling me out.
