Here is the other thread for this crosspost.
BTW, though I do agree that it's good practice to do a simple search and I certainly think crossposting should be discouraged, I think we should continue to answer people's questions here and be friendly.
Every forum is different but I know that the sponsors of another forum I read regularly have requested that forum regulars not just answer questions with "do a search".
I know it's frustrating to many to keep answering the same questions over and over, but I imagine that Dreamhost would like us to be as friendly as possible to their prospective customers. That is not to say that we should be one-sided in our recommendations, but rather that we treat newbies as honored guests of our hosts here.
Just an opinion. FWIW I also think a gentle suggestion about doing a search next time is acceptable.
