I used to be a stoopid feller...then I passed 3rd grade and only made stupid mistakes.This is very true, he was not the focus of my rant, mearly the straw that sent me to the keyboard. I will give him credit in the fact that when he was told there was a problem he didn't whine and complain, he took it like a man and removed the post. In my book that gives a person more points over the guys that just complain about the rules being stoopid. It's not a question of if we agree with the rules or not, they are there and we all are to follow them, new and old alike.
Greg, I hope I pushed it to 7 for you.
Seems like it was just a few short months ago that we had a new guy in here that did just that, or claimed to anyway.Firefire has a very good point though. It's pretty safe flaming someone and being rude online since you don't risk getting punched in the nose for it.
Pretty sure, if I ever met the guy that invented the personal computer or the Internet, I would punch him right in the nose!
Wasn't that Al Gore?
And we all know your life would be meaningless without it. Who would you tell about your dog driving the golfcart then?
The problem is the majority of the ones that break the rules simply click the box that says they read the rules , instead of actually reading them . Then they whine and cry about rude comments and getting flamed . Its not just new members I have seen members that been here since 2007 or 08 with 5 or ten post complaining they can't post in the classifeds .If they would have took the time it takes to start a thread about it and just went back and read the rules their question would have been answered . Everyone should reread the rules every couple months just to see if they have changed , and be responsibile for your own actions .There'd be a lot more room if we deleted all the posts flaming a new guy who broke a rule for the first time. There's no way a new guy is gonna remember every single rule and adhere to it strictly until they've been here a little bit. If someone breaks a rule a few times, say something courteously and move on. Most of the time it's trite. It would be different if they were flaming your mom or something. And searches don't always work. Just sayin'.
