Yeah that's one thing I wish the mods would do in this subforum, namely merging all same-topic threads. It would be so much more efficient for everyone concerned if we didn't have so many separate threads for some of the issues being raised.
It's like cutting off the hydra's heads; every head dealt with seems to sprout two new ones. In addition, the admin team are real people with real lives.
It would be helpful if people didn't start new threads before looking to see if the subject has been covered before. Sometimes people don't know how to do this, some don't think to do this, and others just want 'their' thread to stand out, if only briefly.
