In all seriousness, why do people ask questions that have been answered 1,000 times?

I've had plenty of comments removed by the website moderators for using vulgar language against those who ask redundant questions, i.e. "Is it hard to get a job in IB?" or "What are good colleges to attend?" So... can someone provide a legitimate answer as to why people ask these same questions that have already been answered on this site or on any search engine at least 50 times?

Just saw another one asking if a 3.0 GPA will hurt in IB recruiting.

just round it up to a 3.1 meaning you can round it up to a 3.2 meaning you can round it up to a 3.3 meaning you can round it up to a 3.4 then rounding it up to 3.5 thus not getting you cut from the resume list.

But why not just round up your company? Why say you interned at a back office accounting gig? Back office is technically in an office, so then you could just list front office, so at that point you basically had an internship at GS

Imagine being so annoyed by stupid questions that you ask stupid questions about why stupid people repeatedly post stupid questions. I see no end in sight...

Pretty sure you asked this question 1,000 times.

Because this is a public online forum and they are allowed to. I have yet to see any rule against it. Sometimes people prefer to hear answers aimed directly at them rather than just read them elsewhere.

It's the same reason as why you can't stop creating useless threads.

Things change with time, if @PrestigeCaller only set the record straight once, how would we know when to move to Charlottesville or buy that Tesla (BTW how prestigious is the new model 3 or roadster)? While H/S/W will probably be a safe bet for awhile, lower tier colleges, firms, and industries just straight up change so an update is nice.

Funny as hell, I hope people get this.

Model 3 only semi-prestigious but Roadster is pretty much divine prestige

The model 3 looks like it was designed by a 3 year old who thinks that cars that look like boats with smiles is a good design strategy.

Went to "Peak Mortal Achievement" but I'm not an "Automatic HandJob." Worried my "Breakfast of a Champ" is what's holding me back...

Dude... If you don't want to open a thread of a topic you've already read, just don't open it. That's under your control and how an online forum works. People can do what they want and there's nothing wrong with asking a similar question in (perhaps) a different context.

Your obsessiveness with this topic is what boggles my mind. Will you be able to change how people behave by just posting about it? No.
Will people agree with you and SB your ratio back to neutral? I think the community has proven that we are pretty done with you - so no.

The only purpose of this then is to stroke your bruised ego and another attempt to put yourself above others who even DARE to ask a question that's been asked before. Just to be clear, it's not making us think any highly of you.

Because they want that question "tailored to their needs" as they want a response that is "just for them" and wrapped in a bow.
