Lately, there has been a trend of people asking questions on biostars without googling, minimal literature search or even checking if it has been asked previously. Most of these questions are from people who have opened an account on biostars very recently, or visit the website as one-time consultants.
Many community members tend to answer the questions swiftly, while some of the frequentists of biostars point out to the question being asked earlier. I believe the members are not here to solve someone's homework or help through a LMGTFY approach.
Has there been a discussion already on how to avoid these one-time consultations which go around in circles? The moderators spend a lot of time on the web-site already, but is there some plan of restricting questions from being posted by brand-new accounts only after moderation, rather than moderating it after the question has been made public - What has been seen cannot be unseen, can it?
