I guess I'm of two minds on this. APUG is supposed to be an active forum with discussion (I think), not a dead archive. So I don't really understand why people would get bent out of shape when the same question pops up over and over. Why would we assume it was answered correctly the first time? Because it was a long time ago? Because it was answered by an older person?

On the other hand, in a way I take RPC's view even further when I suggest novice analog workers not even bother searching internet forums - active or archived - before getting at least some simple foundations from Ilford and Kodak publications (which I've linked to and suggested to newcomers). There is a lot of bad information out there, both new and archived.
