    This forum can be pretty helpful with information now and again and I'm not on it regularly enough to know if you get a rush of know it alls but I just read some post from some girl who thinks she can sleep with a Sprint employee to score a phone and that is..bizarre and icky. Is that the norm or is that what you're talking about?

    Alli made a post here a few days ago that fits this topic and I think it was a very good solution of what to do when you run into this. Here's the link: http://forums.tipb.com/tipb-lounge/2...-spammers.html

    I see there are a lot more people who have no sense and have zero clue on how to search and ask silly elementary school questions that are already answered.

    The persons name has to do with a Disney movie, and they are trying very hard to get a spring 4S.

    I find there is less negativity on these boards. Especially since there isn't really a 'General Discussion' forum where anyone can just post pointless threads to provoke negativity, I find that members here are usually civil, which is refreshing.

    It rymes with smariellesmershmerle. I don't like to take personal attacks on people, but the person has really seemed like a troll to me.

    Why call a person out? Just report the person or post that was made a move on. If a person is here just to troll they feed on people's responses to them, so there is no point in giving them that satisfaction.

    I agree with you on this. TiPib is the best Apple forum around thanks to the Admins, Mods, and the regular members here.

    Growth is painful There's nothing wrong with being new. We were all new here at one time. I came to TiPb (then Phone different) from TreoCentral (now PreCentral) and if it hadn't been for people like Dieter and Mike Overbo, who patiently helped me with my n00b questions, even though they'd answered them a million times before, I probably wouldn't have stayed here long.

    Trolling is another story. Just let us know when it happens and we'll stop it asap. Everyone has a right to enjoy the forums and we want everyone to have the best experience possible here.

    (Also, ignoring rather than engaging trolls does wonders -- if you engage they get the negative attention they crave and they win.)

    there's still d-bags on here that act like know-it-alls and get upset with newer people when they ask a simple question and they leave smart *** replies about their question. That I don't like about these forums. I don't remember these kinds of people on crackberry. Probably because actual adults use BB instead of all the children that get iphones.

    Obviously you haven't been on Crackberry recently, because it is equally filled with the same kind of members, just a different device....

    See I have to disagree with that. I had to stop going to crackberry forums, because it was way worse then here. Actually a lot of people I talk to stopped going into their forums too for the same reason. Tipb seems like a much smaller group of people then Crackberry was.
