As per my knowledge a google hit can answer my question. But i don't you people are doing something like checking each and every post whether that was cross posted or not. what's trick behind it.

ocjp 6 — Feeding a person with food is a great thing in this world. Feeding the same person by transferring the knowledge is far more better thing. The reason is the amount of satisfaction which we get through food is of only one minute or two. But the satisfaction which we can get through the knowledge is of life long.

I'm a moderator on three Java forums, so I can't help spotting cross postings. And sometimes cross posts have a giveaway: for example, mentioning an image/screenshot on a forum that doesn't allow attachments, or posting unsupported BBCode or HTML.

There's also something about the attitude of a typical cross poster that sometimes makes me want to Google the first couple of sentences, in quotes. About half the time I do get multiple results, usually on forums I don't read regularly.

luck, db

Is that what you do in your spare time, Bear?

let's see...bald top of head...check.
hair on bottom of head...check.
Knows things mere mortals shouldn't...check.

Yup, it must be you.
