its called flaming my friend. and i agree with you.. its a sad, sad reality.integra1519 on Sep/02/02 said:wow,and i wondered why i havent been visiting ti as much as i used too but now i realize why after reading this post. it seems that lately people can never ask a question unless it its frased perfectly. alot of people dont miss a chance to verbally abuse someone or pick them apart because they thought the question was dumb and that you should know better. NOT EVERYoNE oN THIS BOARD KNOWS EVERYTHING!! THATS THE POINT!! people ask questions because they dont know the answer or how to ask the question. how much advice would you take from someone who is yelling at you or calling you an idiot?? think about this BEFORE you reply to someone, if your gonna be an asshole about it then nobody should listen to your advice. im afraid to ask questions anymore for fear of 30 people telling me i should have known the answer or didnt frase the question right or i didnt give enough info in the question.some people claim that stupid questions take up extra bandwidth, how much bandwidth is wasted on the people who turn a stupid question into three pages of posts telling the asker how dum the question was and the bandwidth it wasted? try not responding if your that bandwidth consious. ti used to be my homepage when explorer opens up, i think im switching that to ebay now.
