    I prefer MSDN forums in that I never get the dreaded "this question was already asked"  response.  When I search in google, stack overflow answers always come back on top.  Does stack overflow pay google to have its content listed at the top of search results?

    @SteveRichter: So you search, Google returns an answer on Stack Overflow, and then you want to ask the same question? No wonder you get "this was already asked" as a response.

    For example, out of the 181 pages of [c] realloc questions someone already answered any possible question. The real problem isn't your new question being rejected, it is that no one has been ruthless enough eliminating the rest of the useless duplicates.
