Nowadays it is has become really really frustrating, how more and more people are using forums like their personal blog.

Forums used to be for discussions about IMPORTANT topics, so threads like "so...., I thought, would that be a good idea?" are not important all they are good for is spamming a forum.

Also the search button does exist  for a reason, how about using it before creating the .......thread  with the same topic?

Might I suggest you use the search button instead of making a blog post next time?

Hmmm...

Stop playing hall monitor and repeating comments made by the moderators like "this isn't your personal blog" or "use the search function." We don't need you to parrot their comments. It's the job of the moderators to police this forum, not you.

The "personal blog" meme is getting tiresome, particularly coming from the people using this space as a "personal blog" to complain about it.

Wow, a useless thread complaining about useless threads... I guess irony isn't part of your vocabulary or you seriously lack foresight.
