By "a few folks", I suppose you mean ME
. Fair enough, albeit a tad presumptuous.
I can understand that answering "the same questions over and over again" might get to be a bit annoying, but then again, you always have the option of NOT
answering. I'd rather get NO
answer, than a sermon about the evils of asking questions. I don't remember asking for YOUR help, specifically...so telling me how many times YOU'VE posted links for others is neither important nor relevant. If YOU are fed up with helping others, just stop...it really IS that easy!
Furthermore, I could understand your annoyance if this was a question from some newbie who flies in, asks a question and then disappears for 6 months until he/she has another problem...but I've been a member of this forum since July of 2010, as well as being a contributing member of the old forum for several years as well.
A quick glance at my profile would show this AS WELL AS
the fact that I am most active in the TECHNICAL section, where I contribute plenty of information (without the patronizing) to other members. If the question has been asked numerous times before, I'll usually just ignore the post - what a concept! But if it is a self-proclaimed newbie, making his/her first post...I'll answer the question (if I'm able to) and THEN maybe point them towards the STICKY threads or the Google searches.
My point? Answer the question if you can...but don't bother if you feel that:
i) it has been asked too often
ii) it is beneath you
iii) if you simply don't want to
but spare us the pontificating...it only detracts from the otherwise helpful nature of this forum.
...and for the record, the REAR WHEEL bearings are 6203 (x2) and 6203LU (x1).

Notice how the guy was GRATEFUL for the simple response without the brow-beating?
