273,000 hits -- Now that is exactly why I WOULD go and start asking others. 273,000 hits, even if I could examine 1 hit a second that would take a little over three days to examine them all.
Almost every question posted on this site can be answered with a "bit of research", so do we reap them all?
Not everyone writes beautifully, could it be a second language issue? Maybe AM is used to chinese, and had some difficulty posting in english.
I think what this person was looking for, and I think rightfully so, was a way to cut through the 273,000 pages of marketing and junk to find out what conclusions experienced developers had already made. Maybe AM was doing research, but decided to work in parallel. Ask the question, and while responses come in go out and start sifting through the 273,000 hits.
I think the reaping has gotten a bit out of hand. If people don't feel like answering, or entertaining a question then ignore it. Just simply ignore it. They really go away that easily.
