    A responder on another thread raised the question “how hard is it to look up an answer in a text book and post it?”.  This question triggered a question of my own.  In the opinion of our Forum posters, what percentage of the posts on this site do think could be self-answered if the original poster took some initiative to look through this site, Google or Yahoo?  My opinion is 20-25% of the time.

    Yahoo sucks for search, but on Google (pulling from iSixSigma and other sites) probably 45% could be answered. This forum has seen plenty of Q&A in the past if anyone would just search a little.

    Darth,
     
    Although it was a rhetorical statement to try to prove an elusive point, I’d like to answer that it can occasionally (and I don’t have data – sorry) be difficult to lookup an answer in a book and post it.  At least with the predicate assumptions/requirements in place that:  1.) the question was clearly stated    2.) the reader/respondent understood the question  and 3.) the reader/respondent had the wherewithal to find and effectively communicate the answer not only to the satisfaction of the original questioner but also to the many forum readers who want an answer to the question.  
     
    And, again (sorry), I don’t have data, but my gut feel is 40% +/- 5% of the questions in the forum have either already been explicitly asked and answered or are deducible from information in the isixsigma.com web site.  
     
    But, as I said, I have no data and refuse to try to perform obtuse calculations because some weenie insulted you.    At least I don’t have time to right now, maybe later.

    I agree with SSNewby in that this is a waste of time.  Let it go man! Your insecurity is showing.  But, to chime in since I am already typing – 70% either already posted or in a book somewhere.  We all do not come up with these brilliant idea’s on our own.  It’s all recycled in some way shape or form.
