Do you search before starting any discussion on mylot? Is it useful? Actually I am asking this question because I really don't get anything in the result after searching or what I get is not related to my discussions, but then four discussions are mentioned under of my discussions that they are similar discussions. So I am really confused. What about you?

I don't usually search for similar discussions before I start one. Maybe I should, that could explain why some of my discussions are answered by many people, perhaps they are all bored of that topic!

I think searching for similar discussions before starting a discussion is waste of time because most of the time the search shows 0 result.

I usually try to do a search for things before I start a topic unless I know its off the wall. BUT the search option doesnt always bring up results for me. I tried earlier and kept getting nothing. But at the same time I dont use the search that often. I just keep hitting new disscusion link & disscusions with no responses :]

I always you the search feature to before i post a discussion to make sure the subject i am posting about has not already been posted a billion times, and if it has then i just type my responses into one of them instead of starting up a new post. If you aren't getting results you might want to try typing in different keywords for what it is that you are looking for
