I don't get it. I imagine there are probably quite a few youngsters in their early or mid teens (or even younger) around here. (Yeah, yeah. Get off my lawn.) The immaturity associated with such age is the only thing I can think of to explain it -- but not excuse it. I'm talking about the idiotic, pointless ripping to shreds of "n00b" questions and comments. I see it quite frequently, but the last straw came when I read this thread. Sure, it's in the FAQ. It's a pretty well known feature. (Hey, it took me a couple of weeks before *I* discovered it) But some people don't know about it. It would have been nice if the OP read the FAQ or searched the forums before posting -- that goes for any posts about stuff that's already been covered -- but chicken fried Christ, was there really a need for dozens of freakin' posts attacking him for it? Calling him names, bashing him for not knowing that little tidbit? No. No, there wasn't. At all. Look, we all start somewhere. Along the way we discover neat things we want to tell people about only to discover that we seem like we're the last person on the planet that discovered it. It happens. People need to understand that, and a gentle reminder or two is one holy hell of a lot better than whipping out your E-p*nis and beating them over the head with it while referring to them as stupid, retarded n00bs. There really ought to be a punitive system in place for dumbass crap like that. Two, three strikes for engaging in high dumbassery and you get your ass banninated. This could be an awesome community but for the idiocy and determined immaturity of certain members. It already is an awesome community, really, but the rude, mouthy morons really cast a pall over it and make this a decidedly more intimidating place for new users who may -- just may -- really not know any better. If someone commits the unforgivable faux-pas of asking a question that's been covered already or offering up some little tip or trick that's already been committed to the FAQ, then please, quietly point them in the right direction. Don't bend them over and kick them there. To those who were the inspiration for this post: Grow the hell up. You don't crap rainbows and daisies yourself, you know. Once upon a time, you knew less than the people you're crapping on. Get over yourselves before you knock someone over with that ego. To those who have been ripped on: Stick around. The opinions of the idiots are worthless. There's a lot of gold around here. Just don't let all the fecal deposits dropped by the above morons blind you to it. To the mods: Here are your jackboots. Go kick some hynie.
