Not a single period or a single capitalized letter. How the hell do you expect anybody to read that? Seriously, one enormous run-on sentence? I promise you will get bothing but ***** from this forum if you don't take the time to help us help you.

At least you know how to use smilies

And for the record, the internet wasn't invented yesterday. Every forum you have ever joined has SUBFORUMS that at the beginning are sticky's. If you join a forum and don't read the sticky's, you're just wasting your time and ours. Grow up.

We're good people here, really, but this place is a step and a half above HondaTech or DSMTuners. We care about the quality of knowledge contained here and we are hard on NOOBs on purpose sometimes to get the point across that growth in the community is a TEAM effort. Everybody has to do their part. Your part can start with taking the time to write clear and coherent posts, and the rest of us will take it from there.

I have never joined a forum before,
I'm just getting used to how it all works.

so please give me a chance to understand it all, but as far as it goes so far you all have helped.

Thanks for all the grillings that always adds to the enjoyment of it all. lol

Jesus... maybe not the greatest question to ask, but even as this guy gets bombarded with moronic and insulting responses, he still responds kindly. And the result? More insults... what a friendly place.
