My opinion is yes, that there should be some negative reinforcement for breaking the rules. The old crap about "Oh, I didn't know" shouldn't cut it-lack of knowledge about a law doesn't exonerate a person (imagine trying to defend yourself for murder or speeding: "OH! I didn't know there were laws about speeding!").It seems to me as of late we have a lot of new members here that are unable to read. Or so it would seem then they post a classified to the forum, or even a link to an open auction. It seems as though we can't go one week in here without some one posting to the forum "I can't post a classified".
My question is this, should those who break the rules be given a time out of sorts? Not a very long one, just long enough for them to settle down and have time to read the rules. I also think the threads they start need to be deleted so the rest of us don't have to look at them and so they don't waste space.
The site rules do not explicitly say it is against the rules to properly search for pre-existing topics (because that would be a profoundly difficult rule to enforce due to the varying interpretations of what constitutes a proper search or a relevant thread) but I can make it so very easily.I have spoken to DH at length about that. Where in the rules does it say a search is required? Maybe you both need to learn how to read a title. It does say something about breaking the rules now doesn't it? And yes I agree there was a time, a long time ago, I was an FNG and should have known to use the search function. But this is a thread about rules, not etiquette.
A lot of members here help the other members here, I don't see where you got this one-sided attitude.I don't mind noob questions.. In fact, if I could think of one, I'd ask right NOW!!! Besides you all NEVER answer the question anyway... Like it's a game of who's smarter... That attitude was exactly what I needed to make me an expert.. Now me and the TM's are friends... So IF that was your plan from the get go... IT WORKED!! YEAH RIGHT.... I should add a disclaimer... Gimpy and Bjorn actually provide technical and accurate information... I do appreciate your input... ALWAYS.... Most of the time the rest of ya's advise is just the obvious and a rash of crap.... Stating the obvious doesn't actually make you look smarter.... just so ya know...
But I get rather sick and tired of the complaining about noobs... AS IF you all were born with your brain packed with infornation... Geezz.... If you don't like reading peoples questions DO NOT READ THEM... wow... so tough.... I'd say MOST people who stumble over here came from someone they know or just fell into a MV and are stupified/numb from the experience... Give them a break.... If it wasn't for them... WHO would you feel smarter than??
That is some funny $%^@ there!Hmm, I agree with Clinto but I would also love to task a smarter person than myself to do a Steel Soldiers specific posting video like the one that was posted from a steam site of some sorts. It would be nice to, instead of chastising folks, be able to click a "force to view" button and require them to view the video again. We can do this a few times before the ban. Wait, here is what I was thinking of! We need one of these Steel Soldiers specific.

Speaking of a "rash of crap", the above statement falls into that catagory. While Bjorn and Gimp do provide the Forum with consistantly good information, they by no means are the only ones..... Most of the time the rest of ya's advise is just the obvious and a rash of crap....
