Bob I recommend you read the rules here
You posted very same question on 15+ forums... Don't you think, it's little bit excessive?
I posted this question to exactly 12 websites.
Going to close this since the user is getting help from 15+ other sites
Of course the reason I posted this question to multiple website’s forums is to maximize the chance of getting answers. Any given question is usually answered at only a minority of forums. But by posting questions to forums at multiple websites, several different people have responded to each and every one of my questions. They've each been helpful and brought something to the discussion that others at other websites had not thought of. So what does it matter if such helpful people are distributed over several websites?
Posting to forums at different websites is not the same as posting to more than one forum at a single website. The idea behind not cross-posting to multiple forums at a single website is to ensure that posts are directed appropriately. Posting to forums with similar topics at different websites is in no way directing posts inappropriately.
If you feel it’s not worth your time to answer a question because it was also posted to other websites, then by all means don’t answer it. But why should you prevent others from doing so, if they want to?
I’ve never hidden the fact that I have sometimes posted a question to multiple websites’ forums, but you are only the second moderator to ever object to this EVER.
Exactly what have I done that is rude, inconsiderate or in any way offensive? What is important here? Isn’t it the maximum free dissemination of information, rather than which website has the “exclusive right” to answer a question? Because if it’s the latter, I don’t see how that’s reasonable, fair or in the public interest.
