So some newbies see criticism and immediately result to insults and profanities.
And these are the people this forum needs ?

I think most people understand that criticism does not have to be a bad thing, in fact it is often helpful. That is probably why that word was never used in any of the posts here. The words used were meanness, sarcasm, condescending, beat down, abuse, mockery, insult and ridicule. Which one of these are helpful and who thinks that "seniority" gives them the right use these tactics?

sarcasm is merely a tool in the toolbox of constructive criticism.

Man you guys are a tough bunch :)

Everyone who registeres here has the right to ask a question and interact with other posters as long as they follow the rules.

We should not be chasing anybody away because perhaps one of them might actually have found the missing "system" we have been searching for since Noah climbed aboard that big wooden boat of his........

NAHHHHH who am I kidding :)

There are no stupid questions..



I disagree. There are stupid questions, and silly
ones as well. And if you ask them in public you
will be looked at as silly and stupid. This is an
indisputable fact.

Is Bigfoot real is a good question.

What does Bigfoot eat is a stupid question. So
is what do Unicorns eat. Neither are real creatures.

People ask stupid questions all the time.

I don't remember anymore. I had a reason at
the time, though.
