suggestions for searching and posting?

For those who don't know, there is way to search this site a little easier, and also maybe this should be posted to show up before someone asks a question. I copied this from the starting strength website and so I'll leave Rip's sarcasm in....

To search this board: To effectively research the previous responses to your no-doubt highly original question, just on the off-chance that it has been asked before, please do this:

  1. Go to google.com.

  2. Type this into google: site:paleohacks.com [your highly original question or it's keywords]

  3. Read these before you post.

Edit: does anyone else have any tips, tricks, and hacks for searching and posting this site? How can we reduce redundancy and clutter?

the built-in search is fine for one-word searches. Google is tons better for multiple word searches and for phrases searches, e.g. "leptin reset". And, with Google you can do searches with ANDs and ORs.

Fair enough, some things are person-sepecific questions and should be asked multiple times. Not taking the effort/time to seek out answers to other questions strikes me as kinda lame though.

I also wish to add i'm not saying that this question/piece of information is snarky...it IS helpful. I guess i'm just addressing the other aspects that this subject brings up.

just another option, maybe easier for multiple terms or to see a larger overview

Sometimes though, even if a question is already asked before, not everyone can have the time to research all the options...and it seems almost most questions have been asked in one form or another anyways...there's always someone willing to answer and you never know, you may get a better response the second, third or even fourth time around. Members are always changing, people learn new things...If you don't WANT to answer a question, then simply don't. It does seem a shame some folks feel the need to be snarky because someone isn't as tuned in to the ins and outs of paleo hacks...this should be a friendly and informative forum regardless of redundancy of questions. It's also a shame when someone is mocked because of poor spelling or grammar...we're not all geniuses. Just sayin'. and it's just my opinion (and we know everyone's got one of those and something else too).

Sorry, could you explain what benefit this has over the built-in search?
