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 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.

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.

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.
