chobb1. Don't let let the Morons of the world bother you to much. Unfortunately some peoples life only has meaning when they try to tear others down. Sad I know but you meet those people every where. We just can't let the "little" people of the world push us out.

Well, I'm staying!
This forum is in no way as bad as CB was getting which is why I don't check the forums over there anymore. (well...that and the fact that I have an iPhone now) There were some threads over there that were just verbal fist fights. Depressing really. I hope that chobbs and sean BOTH stay as I've gotten a few great TiPs from both. They'd probably be friends if they knew each other personally. (Maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but you get what I mean!) You just have to remember to treat others as you would be treated and everyone will get along just fine... most of the time! =)

Meh. Get over it. I actually think this forum is relatively calm with minimal angry banter. Ever been on Macrumors? They get hostile, with teckstud usually leading the way. Or whatever handle he uses on a particular day. Yes there are a few people that cause trouble from time to time, me included, but I don't think I've attacked anyone directly. I know I've received points and been warned several times, but that's the nature of the beast.
As other posters have said, this site is growing and with growth comes more of an undesirable crowd. There are plenty of good people on here who contribute postively, me included at times. Hell I've even gotten Jeremy S. to agree with me on one or two posts, although I am sure he fought the urge. If you have to go, then go. If you choose to stay, just put those people on ignore. I am sure I am on some ignore lists.

OMG! Macrumors is the worst. I just got banned from that pathetic place last month. People over there have such thin skin that they can dish it out but can't take it in.
Someone was acting childish and I asked him if he was late for home room class. That got me banned. So then I unfollowed Macrumors on Twitter and reported their twitter name as spam. LOL

Everyone has very valid points. The problem the way I see it is that a forum is a place for thoughts and opinions. There is no cut and dry right and wrong in opinions and thoughts. So the problem I see is when someone has an opinion but thinks it's fact. Then there's the problem of people who can't let comments roll off their back. I mean honestly it is the web, an inanimate object that shouldn't impact your life. When I get on here I go through the threads where someone is asking for help for something I might be able to help. I do tired of alot of misinformation, bad attitudes and a few people who ruffle my feathers.
I think you guys are right it's time for me to take off.

Most people dont have the nerve to say in person what they say in type to a person's face.
Its a general lack of civility that has become pervasive in today's society.. even more so a message boards.
Unfortunately there is no escaping it.

When it becomes this upsetting and this serious, it's time to put down your mobile device and enjoy the rest of the apects of your life. Never let cell phone stuff get you so upset. Stay and enjoy yourself because you'll eventually run into the same thing in another forum.

We can't let little things get to us, it's a forum. As she said, you will always run into this type of stuff somewhere else.
