It's kind of like going to the information desk and asking for directions and having the staffer tell you to look at the directory yourself and not waste their time.

No. It's not. Reread the original post.

You mean that original post, or have I completely lost sight of the point you're trying to make? Because I was remarking on Sager's and I guess on your impatience with people who take the shortcut and ask for some quick feedback without taking the time to read every post that was ever written on this forum.

Given to hyperbole? Anyone capable of boiling water could spend 10 minutes checking reviews and scanning posts and discover not only that a $500 mattress/box spring set was junk, but that mattress names are all over the map.

It's not nice to be a mattress snob. Very tempting, yes. But, still not nice. :)

I find this sort of thing happening on other consumer forums...EXCEPT CruiseCritic! :-) I learn so much from people asking questions that may have been asked a hundred posts ago. I also find that people will many times add a helpful link to a past thread which the current poster is asking about. Those kinds of helpful gestures make for a pleasant and user-friendly forum. AND, it sure keeps me coming back! Not to mention having the opportunity to actually have met some of these PATIENT folks.

I might not feel as excited about getting together with someone who was in the habit of ragging on me for my first time questions. :(

Oh come on! The point of this forum is to share knowledge, not show everyone how superior we are. I don't have a problem with helping someone out. If you do, perhaps you should just not reply to questions you think are beneath you.

You win. You're elected to answer every open-ended question tossed out, whether discussed and/or answered dozens of times before or not. It's like a high school student who has slept through an entire class, then wakes up with 5 minutes left and asks questions that everyone else has been discussing for the first 45 minutes. Good forums request that posters make a bit of an effort before posting. That's why FAQs are common. Snobbery or superiority? Get real. It's common sense. Aside from being a waste of bandwidth, lazy posting accomplishes absolutely nothing since more than one response/opinion for each mattress mentioned really is needed. So an OP then has to weigh the responses/opinions, then will go back into the forum anyway for more info. That's bassackwards. Do the very basic preliminary research, then ask more focused questions, and everyone wins.

Occasionally you make some valuable contributions to this forum but too often you seem to use it as an outlet to air your discontent with the world. I feel like I'm wasting my valuable time by bothering to respond to you when I could be helping someone out replying to their open-ended questions. Man, you are one rude miserable dude!  I'm sure you'll sleep very well tonight secure in the knowledge of what a wonderful human being you are. Did you catch the sarcasm there?

hi, I am from Australia. I have purchased a new mattress and I ordered sheet sets online but sheets are not fit to my mattress and I do not know much about sizes.
