You know, it actually takes effort to be a hater and to abuse newbs. Save the world and expend less energy by ignoring posts that get on your nerves and do something worthwhile with your time.

Like most on here I get frustrated when questions are repeated over and over again, mainly because I've taken time out to read a thread that has effectively wasted my time. What I won't do is waste more time rising to the bait, so I find another thread or another site - simple.

That said, I do find the banter amusing even though I choose not to participate.

I guess it's down to the kind of person that you are. Do you prey on the weak (in a manner of speaking) or are you a helper or, as most parents do, allow others to find their way.

Regardless, this is agreat site.

it's one thing to parent your own kid and watch them learn not to repeat mistakes.

it's another thing when you're the foster parent of a continuous string of imbeciles.

I liken it to poor drivers on the road. I constantly try and educate other drivers by letting them know I didn't appreciate them changing lanes without a blinker when I was traveling 10mph faster than they are know doing 20ft in front of me etc.

My wife always says:

"Your not going to change to world like that."

She tells me she knows I'm a better drive and that I actually understand the rules of the road, but that there's no way I'm going to educate all the idiots.

We should just let it go. Every asshat ends up meeting another asshat down the road. They have accidents, and are inconvenienced for their asshattery.

Cliffs: Don't let it crinkle your bumper.
