About me, i'm using search before starting a new discussion because i hate repeating the same subject.
I think you mean by too stupied to make attention to all users, but you can pay their attention by other ways. ;)
I used to use search. One day I thought of the topic 'what are your hobbies' & when I searched there was no topic like this. But when I started the topic, I saw two other discussions on same topic. So from that time I have stopped using search.
