    Learning to search is one thing... Learning how to search is another.

    And it has become surprisingly difficult to find what you search for since the muggles entered the web.

    The flood of corporate bullshit and conspiracy theories is actually as much part of the problem as is the natural dilution of the pool of pure IT content by waves of noob questions and icebergs of non-IT content.
    Naturally, IT nerd stuff like "what firmware blobs to include in a monolithic Linux kernel to get games working with nouveau when booting from a stick to luksmount a fully encrypted disk" (spoiler alert: none, just have the firmware folders included in your initrd image) is not part of the content, the majority is interested in (anymore - it was back when i first entered the Internet).

    So it is logical, that IT nerd stuff becomes harder to find as time goes on. But i highly doubt, that our non-political nerd topics are affected by "cleansing" operations of the illuminati...

    It's more likely due to intellectual property issues and/or butthurt than shadow government.

    Well. The Copy and Pasta is strong.

    Sometimes you find the same articles from 20 different authors on 100 different pages.

    "Ooriiginal conteeeeennt"

    And most people have no clue how to properly include necessary metadata and information in a solution.

    Even worse: Video tutorials / presentations and stuff like that....

    Indeed. My hobby is reporting shit heels for plagiarism. Ends up being mostly indians, but there's the oddball here and there.
