I would have to vote "No" to this as I like the separate forums.
I have to agree that many of the posts are looking for free coding, without actually trying to figure it out for themselves. I also think that they are cross posting because they want an answer NOW so they throw it against the wall to see what sticks. Unfortunately, I don't think those people understand that this is a free forum, answered mostly by volunteers, in their free time. If they want an answer now, they should call IBM Lotus Technical Support. Although, "now" for IBM is a call back within 2 hours. If you're lucky.
I can also understand some of the people's frustration at not getting an answer, as most of the people who used to reply have moved on to the Discussions on LinkedIn.
I looked at the Notes 4/5 forum the other day and actually answered a question. That was my first reply in that forum in nearly 3 years. Hard to believe that there are still people on those Releases.
