    Now that's not to say the search outright sucks, but to say that anyone who can't find all the answers they need just isn't doing it right, well, that's just not true.

    We also have to understand that many times people just aren't sure of the exact terminology they need to use. How else are they going to learn? Surely you don't expect everyone who posts has read every book on Treo and the Palm OS?

    Part of the reason why the searches aren't coming back with "reliable" results is because of the sheer volume of duplicated posts that go on in here. Do a search for "treo killer" or "next treo" or "ringtone app" or "wifi" and you'll get way too many results. Why is that? Because someone searches, clicks on the first 3 results, doesn't get the answer they're looking for, and then creates a NEW THREAD on the same topic.

    So when the next newbie searches, there's more garbage to sift through.

    I feel that this is far more AOL's fault than Microsoft's. AOL lets anyone with a computer and $20 a month get on the internet and provide more fuel for spammers, viruses, and spyware.

    I do agree that the forums are cluttered. I recommend a TreoCentral "GI Party". Let's have a house cleaning party and sort everything down to 50 threads or less in the style of the merged and re-merged "snowflake" thread

    I have this snowflake looking thing that flashes on my Treo every once in a while? What is that for? I read the manual from front to back and searched the forums and I can't find it anywhere. Is it like the taxi cab thing?

    Yeah, I actually put four asterisks instead of actual profanity. My above post was an inside joke relating to another thread

    **** you, Jedi!

    Before you get all offended, search for the thread evil was referring to, and you'll see no offense was meant.

    OK, maybe a little.

    BTW, the snowflake thing should've been bracketed with <sarcasm></sarcasm>.
