I don't know if I'm more sensitive to it now, or it's gotten bad within the last year, but it seems like every thread I read anymore has been crapped on by the DUPE police, locked because it's a DUPE, or really is a DUPE of something that's made its way on this board many times before.

I'm frankly very tired of it, and I know I'm not alone. Some threads literally turn into a discussion about dupage rather than the topic, which might even cast new light on a topic that has been posted before. It makes reading some threads just a fucking waste of time.

So, why is this happening? Here's three reasons why:

1. 53% of this site's members are juvenile turds. Yeah I know, I am too, but crying DUPE is not one of my crimes. If I were God, crying DUPE would be a bannable offense after the 3rd time you did it. Your punishment would be a membership to Gunsnet....and off you'd go.

2. The search function blows donkeys, at least if you hope to discover that a thread already exists with the same subject you are wanting to post. WHY WHY WHY WHY doesn't the search feature look for keywords in the entire post instead of just the title? You know, like nearly every other forum EVER??? When someone posts a thread titled "Look at this", and it's a video of someone getting beat up, how could a person possibly know, without reading every single post back to the beginning of time, not to post it again? I won't even mention how handy the search feature going into posts would be for answering stupid questions.

3. General Discussion moves too fast for people to keep up, unless they live on this forum. In an hour, a topic might be 3 pages deep. That's no one's fault, but it aggravates the problem. Some people just don't have access to the forum all hours of the day, and in less than a day, a dupe topic is too far deep in the page list to find. And, since the page list is dynamic as you click through it, you might click onto page 8, but in that time it's refreshing, some jerkhole just responded to it, and it goes to page 1, and you didn't see it jump. Nice.

Can we address this pesky issue in a meaningful way?

Lastly, the king butthole who responds to this first with DUPE is going to find gay porn in his mailbox for the next 20 years, courtesy of a black labrador in Ohio.

This is about the 3rd or 7th topic about this.

Calling Dupe is stupid....I have stopped doing it.

All it takes is 1 subscription to a gay porn site, or any porn site for that matter. No need to collect.

Besides, I'm into amputees, German scat and lactating midgets....you know, normal stuff.

What is it with the Germans and scat, anyway?????

BTW, I agree that they need better training in the Dupe Police Academy

I dont think the Dupe police will ever go away but its nice to go to other sites and not have to deal with it over there.I just did thread a few minutes ago and I got Duped on already and had it locked,lol.

I'll take your word for it.

Ok serious reply......WTF does it matter?

It is not like it is several paragraphs of complicated words that you need to decipher.

You just scroll past it....how hard is that?

As I said last time. If posting dupe in an important thread does nothing else, it keeps the thread on the front page of GD or at the top of active topics. HOW is that bad?

Much ado about nothing. IMHO

the pages turn so fast here that a lot of people simply do not have the time to read keep up with that many threads/pages. I say if the topic is an obvious dupe don't bother opening it up.

You forgot to mention the worthless thread titles that some folks come up with.

'OMG L@@K AT THIS!!!11111' does not convey any useful information.

'Video of dude getting kicked in nuts' conveys valuable counter-dupe information, and helps make 'searches' more useful.

-eleventybillion

I have a better rule. Two of them actually.

1. Post descriptive topics.

2. Use the search function.

I, for one, will continue to call dupes on threads, and I will post a link only if I feel like it. I am sure FieroLoki is with me
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 5:46:20 PM EDT
I don't see why a link checker can't be implemented to show when and where a link was used last. This would stop about 60% of the dupe threads.
