    I think the search part is okay, but insulting them while telling them to search isn't.

    That's correct.

    Telling someone to search in a nice way, and possibly giving them
    some terms is fine.

    Now when they come back with "**** you, you're not helpful"
    Use the report posts link or PM me.

    hmmmmm

    where do i start??? Quattro, shall i tell him to for the other people who have had a go at me and my responce to them and be nasty in doing so? I could do but i can't be arsed!

    The post whoring thread you refer to was created mainly as joke but also somwhwere people can chat and say the things they would normally either start a new thread for or add into someone elses thread. It has also given us regulars somewhere to vent the occassional annoyment.

    infact i think there has been a lot less threads going OT with the thread. It took a few days as the sillyness continued onto other threads but now i think threads have stayed a bit more on topic. Also some of us guys have actually socialised more and it is nice to have banter and general chat with people with simialr interests - i have an interest in what these people are actually like. If you don't then fine, come get the info you want, build your carPC and go.

    That thread does not affect you in anyway so i don't see your problem. yeah i have a 100,000 post count but that is fake - it is obvious it is fake just as bgoodmans 2 trillian post count is fake (1.3million posts a day?? - i don't think so do you???). And besides, my post count does not affect you either. I was reduced to 0 post count the other day - i didnt really care - it was one for fun and i made comments that encouraged people to make fun of it! - it's called humour!

    And if you want to insult me and call me a post whore search all of my threads in the technical sections and I am sure you sill see a majority of them have far more effort and thought and accuracy than a great number of posts. I am sick and tired of people mentioning me without doing any *****ING research!

    As for noob bashing, yeah i often jump in there and tell them to search but i generally point them in the right direction telling them what area to look in, key words to search for or spoon feeding them if it hink they really need it. If anyone accuses me of otherwise then screw them!

    it is very rare i am nasty to people, sometimes people think i am being when i am teasing them and they always realise.

    oha nd as fro your 140 posts that you seem proud of...well ibet i can find you 140 of my posts were i have been very helpful to a noob. another 140 posts where i have spend more than 30 minutes solving something for someone. Antoehr 140 posts where i have explained somethign to someone. Another 140 posts where I have found soemthing useful etc etc - but i don't care. I do it because i like it and my spending time on fabircation stuff and control stuff is my way of putting somethign back in when other people design great software. I also hope i provide a bit of humour to lift the spirits on this 'once friendly' forum as you put it.

    there have been a sudden influx of noobs who do not even seem to know how to start a PC nevermind build a capPC and they jsut seem to refuse to read the stickies or do their own research and it is frustrating. Noobs seem to love to use the phrase "i have searched but..." when i can find what they need on my qst search. People are just lazy and that annoys more experienced people. Then if we ignore it then someone else who is new tries to answer it and then other people have to step in to correct the info. But some new people are jsut plain rude and that really ****es me off!

    Oh and another thing, with your mighty 140 posts how many PMs and in thread 'thank you's' have you had? and how many people who you have never seen, let alone helped, before PM you for help because they have seen your posts? I am guessing not many!

    I didnt get the impression that he was implying that you were the cause of all this. i could be wrong though.

    wait...or are you mocking this thread?

    That is most definitely talking about Scouses thread.

    I find it somewhat hypocritical bashing on someones thread, while at the same time complaining about other people bashing on newbie threads.
