    Rather than move the original thread here, I thought a link here might be better. Please leave your replies in this thread.

    And No, I don't know who he's reffering to, nor do I really care as long as no-one else is complaining.

    Moderators So Vulgar And Rude, Why?

    IWhen I started on this forum my first post was in all caps and I got chewed out very harshly by a 5000+ moderator.  It was my first post though!

    As I continue to learn on this forum, over and over again I see moderators just going to town on "noobs" for the smallest reasons.

    For example a forum user on his 2nd post asked about the PC game Halo and the only thing replied was by the moderators pointing out how stupid he was and how he should have researched his post before hand.

    I just want to know why are they so mean? Please understand moderators that not all of us have the time to spend all day on the PC.  I mean come on, instead of answering and helping this dude with his question(His second post ever!&#33 he was just made to feel like an idiot.

    If noobs makes you guys so upset, why don't you have a manual that you have to download and read before posting in the forum?

    I'm not talkin about the one that is a post, i mean a "have to version" before they are allowed to post?

    ok i think 99.9% of the time its because they ask a question that is in the faq and wonder why they are called n00bs, some times they even say things like "oh do i have to read all that?? can't you just tell me??" wtf

    I think noobs need to demonstrate a little patience and learn the forum before jumping in. I know we all want everything for free, and we want it now.

    I came from another forum which was set up differently and I started out complaining about this and that.

    Somebody told me to learn the system before speaking out.

    Well, once I made the initial effort, I figured out that the complaints I had were things I could fix on my own.


    Yes, we all get a little short when 100s of people ask the same question simply because they don't care to put forth any effort. This site does not come with a pacifer. Then again, we should not be hostile toward noobs, just tell them to do a little homework.

    When I was reprimanded, it taught me to think first and post second.


    Edit: It was Nobody1234 and The Great Dude who tag teamed my lazy ass. So technically, Nobody told me to learn the system.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    I reviewed his posts briefly, and the only thing I could find was a mod kindly telling him that typing all in caps could be considered rude on a forum. So I'm at a loss as to what he was talking about.
