That's because new posters ask the same questions or make the same points rather than checking for old threads and the members feel it is incumbent upon them to respond.
This particular section has loads of stuff on it that is quite useless, its so difficult to find any useful stuff on it, such as how to remove dog poo from your tyres - now that IS something that could help us all!
That's because it is the Tea Shop and it is meant to be a repository for irrelevant non-cycling stuff. Unfortunately all the threads and new posts come up under "New Posts".
