Why would you then not bother looking for any reference or indicate that
you have bothered to read one before posting?  You post via Google.
That's a search engine.

Go figure.

But you can't hear anything here except what "is said".

But that's utter nonsense: you can only "remedy" problems that stick
around, like a web page (for which you have not bothered looking).  You
can't remedy a discussion.

By looking for the answer or an FAQ or following up on the references of
whatever made that question "pop up".

But your posting history is

a) exclusively asking loaded frequently asked questions
b) never bother looking for the respective FAQ resources
c) never getting to a conclusion
d) restarting the process unfazed without visual impact after some delay
