Should threads like these be posted?

I recently encountered the following thread : https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/697553/?ref=app Is this thread even necessary? Don't we have like 'so many' more of these spamming the Q/A Thread? This section is for discussions, getting help or suggestions during programming, right? Here are more : https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/696816/?ref=app What do the mods have to say on this? Shouldn't the people posting these atleast do a search before? Does anyone there think that there should be a limit ?

Every time I encounter a duplicate, off-topic post, my eyes roll upwards, revealing the darkened blood vessels underneath which starts to throb upon reading the thread content. My palms get sweaty and I struggle to hold my device properly. My nerves become stimulated, as I fight to balance my hormones through the growing headache with deep, regular breathing. I experience seizures, causing my shoulders to dislocate themselves. My organs explode. I fall to the ground, writhing in pain. My facial expression traumatizes and corrupts little children. I hear demonic voices in my head. My fingers twist and bend into unholy signs when I search for links to similar threads and type out my pleas - U̥̫̫͍͋̓ͨ̐S̶̖̺̖̊́͌̅̑̐ͣ͝Ě̺̞̞͓̪̗ͫ͑ͣͬͧͮ ̑҉͍̯̠͓͞Ṯ̸̮͎̹̱͇̤̺ͭ͊̄̆͒̏ͬ̾͠ͅH̢̠̳͖͛͒ͪͬͥ̔E̷̵͙̜̯̣̹ͭ̊ ̴̠̗̙͙̓̒S̀͐ͫ̇ͪ̚͘͝͏͈̭̬͇̝̣E̗̬ͬ̈́͗̽͊͞Ạ̸̞̟̩ͭ̃ͭ͂̿ͬ̒̐̐Ȑ̦̞͈̖͉̎̌̋ͪ̅̀C̷̛ͥͨ̐͂͏̫̯̭̩̪̬H̝̖̫̫ͬ̈͋̆̓̅̅͌̕ ̛̪̤͊̋̇͆ͪ͐͟͝F̷͙͈̄̓ͥ̈ͤ̕̕U̵̡͚̯͓̭͍̼̞ͨN̛̫̜̿̋ͧC̤̝̮̰̯͍͊ͮT̠͎͖̞͗͑̄̈̃͊I̙̦͙̳̩̫̒ͅỎ̸͓͇̖̰N̴̫͔̠̆ͤͧ̂͗ͭ͂̀.

it's not just them. hardly anyone does a search. it's more convenient to post a question than to google it on the web or Q/A. making a archive with a short blurb and giving them post links is one of the way to let them know about it with a polite reminder about using search feature. until Sololearn makes a overhaul of the search feature, FAQ, help section, content posts. there's little you or me can do anything about it. expect repeat, spam posts.

irrelevant tags make the search quite difficult. from this thing I remembered your post on that. your description was funny about people misusing the tags. still have a little laugh when I remember that. note: even I ask you @Kinshuk why do you do this 😟 ? do you know the pains of searching this post by scrolling all the way though the sea of questions just because there was not the " tag " . would have found it in 20 seconds instead of 5minutes of endless scrolling 😭... https://www.sololearn.com/discuss/465048/?ref=app

@Kinshuk Vasisht it's still not quite searchable just add the word tag & posts, search that will make it easier to search. about this question it should have the word duplicate,spam, post, threads for better search. PS: you have been forgiven 😀. when adding tags add some common, simple words from the question, topic. will be convenient while searching.

Usually the mods tell people to use the search function before posting and provide links to existing threads - or something like that. We don't have instructions to handle these questions differently. Of course those repetitive questions are annoying, but on the other hand: We don't HAVE to answer them, they could be simply ignored and will vanish in the list very soon after posting ;)

My typical tagging is the question itself. Perhaps those tags could be removed They have done no actual work

As long as it is harmless and non-repetitive I am okay with any post :)

Plus the search function isn't used as the most questions have inappropriate tags along with the meaningful ones... I mean, why do these people tag all the languages in any kind of post?

For the questions above, I think the tag should be: query/poll programming general Or other tags like these. Tagging languages makes no sense.

@Lord Krishna Please revisit the post and tell me if the tags are correct now. I am sorry I did that.
