What Ticks Me Off!

I love forums. We exchange knowledge, problems, laughter. Now here is what ticks me off about some members in forums. It's their selfishness. Let me explain.

When a member comes on with a problem and you can sense his frustration in dealing with a problem and asks for help. Then you have 10 or 15 nice generous people that want to and help this poor soul find a solution.

My peeve is that when this person finds the solution he doesn't come back to post it for others to benefit.

If we are going to compare notes lets put all the notes on the table.

The thread ''problems and services'' is full of these seemingly ungratefull members.

OK, the steams out now!!!! Sorry if I offend someone.

I agree coby. It used to be different, and people shared. Now they come, get our help, find a solution, and never come back until they have another question to ask.

I know that when a problem is solved you want to forget it and move on with your life. But if we can get out of our way to post a solution or at least point you in the right direction at least they could get out of their routine and post the solution and thank the member that help. Not only that but the support member that came up with the solution would have a sense of gratification. Lord knows we are not paid....and a pat on the back is always nice when it's not your own hand doing the pating.

I've noticed this forum going down hill for the past month. There's more trolls than there used to be.



MOD's K&N Typhoon, H&R sport springs, Fe5 Shocks and Struts, Pacesetter Header, ZZP Catless Down pipe, Tsudo N1 Catback, #34 Injectors, B&M Shift plus, 8000k Low beams...

Still slow as Piss!

It's more like stuck in the pipe after the drain.

.net is a bunch of pricks. I have 3 threads on there without any responses and 6 posts without any responses. I've loved this forum ever since it started, but now we have trolls and just post after post about will this intake work will this catback work etc. Stuff they can figure out with a few clicks here and there.

this forum has not been anything for over a year, I have to make myself come here anymore. The only balt forum that is active a good deal is fail.net. It happens though. But yea, I do not like the one time or one thread posters, about as much as just jack off regulars like this place and most of fail .net has lol
