If you are so smart then maybe you can provide a solution *snip*
Off the top of my head- posting on the basement board instead of on the HG general board (you know, some place people actually aren't looking for content). I don't consider that particularly smart- just considerate.
If you are so smart then maybe you can provide a solution to the stupid "5 post required" anti-spam measure. That would be better than that stupid old-timer comment.
Me? Smart? Such flattery! Hate to burst your bubble; it simply isn't so. Sorry you don't like my sense of humor.
You'll have to talk to the owner of the site to get the rules changed. My understanding is you are correct that it is to keep spammers away and that is a good thing. That aside, it's obnoxious when new members repeatedly post asinine cr*p to circumvent the system. Especially when it's done in the main forum. It really doesn't take long through normal participation to accumulate a measly five posts and it's a shame that immediate gratification of your own petty personal needs is more important than being a member of the community. Actually, it's selfish and childish.
With that said you may now go f u c k yourself. _________________ "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." - Anonymous
The name calling is uncalled for, over the line, and a terrible way to greet new members.
I completely disagree, but accept your admonishment. It is your site and I respect that. I promise not to tell him to f*** off again.
BTW, I voted to bury this, too, because the basement was where it belonged in the first place. f***ing morons. _________________ "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." - Anonymous
@Mavi - point taken! Wish I was aware before about the basement. How about having a sticky post with instructions for new members? Looking at older posts, it seems there are several new members like me.
@kermit - Just posted one. Hope you'd enjoy :-)
Its usually better to not dignify comments like yours with a response. But silence would only encourage low-lifes like you. It seems your only agenda here is to feed your own ego to compensate for your small d***. If you were concerned about community, you'd rather spend time improving this situation instead of uttering profanity. _________________ Abi
