    You don't need much bandwidth today. There aren't that many programming forums and the overall activity is much slower than it used to be. I used to post at the Sun Java forum in its heyday and there was hundreds of questions each day and hundreds of replies to each from a large community of regular posters. Those were the days...
    My bandwidth is limited to this site. If I see a question I know the answer to I generally will respond. It makes no difference if the question has been posted to other sites that I don't visit. To me, posting that something has been cross posted is just noise.

    To me it's relevant information. It's because I adapt my replies to the existing contributions. If there's an identical discussion going on elsewhere I like to know. Ideally the OP should volunteer this information already at the outset.

    Is there a Codeguru policy on this? Is it considered bad/wrong to double post or to post information about double posting? If not then it's probably your post #10 that makes the largest noise in this thread. It's an ad hominem attack on a fellow forum member.

    Perhaps but then you don't have to deal with reported posts from the one person that complains about duplicate posts.

    I don't understand the meaning of this reply.

    You made an ad hominem attack on a forum member in #10 for having reported a double post. That's quite serious coming from a moderator and especially if reporting double posts is not wrong according to the rules of the forum.

    That's my view but I drop this now.

    In your eyes that maybe is what it appears, but there is more to the story that you don't know about. I could explain, but...

    Hello guys!
    I think the discussion i this thread runs out of the goal stated by OP.

    So let's stop such kind of talking.
    You could however continue the off-topic discussions using private messaging.
