    This is something I've noticed at my time in the forum. It's both annoying and a main reason of bitterness among members of this forum.

    Restating the Exact Words of the Above Poster

    *If someone gives a solution, I'm curious to why 4 other people have to comment saying the exact same thing...

    Original Solution


    Solution....hmm difference to ^...None (Great Help)

    Reasoning
    *Whenever anyone does this, all it does is aggravate the one who gave the solution as well as confuse the original poster who now thinks..hmm is there a difference. No, so you just wasted their time. That's not all, no it's not! Now when someone goes back and searches (those capable) now you just wasted their time. Fun...No.

    Yes, I agree......(more to post, Of course not)

    *This is my favorite. So much substance! We've all seen them.
    No point to even Quote actual posts.
    *Hmm let's start. Doesn't help whatsoever with searching, contribution, or any of that.A little guess. The OP doesn't care what you think. They want a solution, if it doesn't work then feel free to chip in..

    *If someone gives you advice. It's best to actually do it. Hard I know

    Agreed. but sometimes when you post on a thread, another person gets his post before you, because you might have been writing a post. An then when you submit it, someone else got a post right before yours, saying the exact same thing.

    i agree, times three

    also i've been wanting to rant about this and this seems like the place to do it-

    it annoys me greatly when people (i'll name names, teslanaut) spend hours looking around random sites for their news and posts and such, and then copy+paste the whole thing into iptf just to get postcount

    for example

    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67890
    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65918
    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68032

    infact i won't even bother with more, just look up threads started by teslanaut and 90% of them are like that

    edit: v k i didn't think i explained it pwoperly

    like you go around to gizmodo and things like that, find their news and such, and copy+paste them here, see those 3 (and most all of your other threads) for examples

    Still no qualification >__>

    Yes, he states it, but they have no bearing. Personally, I care about fact rather than opinion.

    That's just me
