The thing I dislike is when people randomly post links to their band sites/forums in unrelated topics.

Yeah, yeah, laugh it up sister.

I did want to add that if you see some inappropriate newbie bashing, let us know. We'll be happy to slap the abuser around some. Tym and I need to get our jollies some how.

If you come in with attitude youre going to be met with attitude. If you come in acting like and ignorant fool youre going to be treated like an ignorant fool. Its the way the world works. Suck it up.
Where does it say I'm better than anybody? That was the whole point - we're all equal. It was an observation (without attitude). Just mind that knee when it hits the desk. BTW the apostrophe key doesn't work on your keyboard, right?

Good for you!!

It definitely gets easier each day. I think I might be fucked at Foo shows if Angela (Angelfoo) has anything to say about it.

if someone types as though they are in kindergarden or are displaying a very arrogant and elitist attitude but have awful language skills, it is worth pointing out their mistakes. otherwise, it just looks like you are resorting to criticising someone's spelling and grammar to make your point and aren't able to respond with a relevant argument.

newbies now are nowhere near as bad as they used to be back in t'day (*gets all nostalgic*). they used to be horrendously arrogant, stupid, abusive and spam whores. now, the internet has been around a fair while and people have got used to the etiquette of post boards (which is pretty much the same on most large, moderated boards). if newbies have posted on other postboards, they tend to behave alright here.

i also don't mind the ones that are very polite, apologise for posting in the wrong forum, and learn from their mistakes.

Fuck that for a game of soldiers.

If someone makes a post about a serious issue, giving decent thought and reasoning behind it and then ruins it all by spelling like they're on a mobile phone or just escaped from retardsville (between smallville and pleasantville) then it's my obligation to point it out so they'll be taken seriously in the future.

Think of it as a free service to mankind.
