Asking and starting new topics is only half the fun; reading input from topics already discussed, from users possibly never returning (or banned) is just as valuable (and time saving).

The problem with GDing is the newbies: the rest of the site shouldn't have to conform to them, they should be well versed in forum rules instead (which is uncommon, unfortunately).
Addressing the problem at this source is the way to go. I've given my own suggestion to that end, but I'll leave it to admin and mods to see what's best here.
