I just got spanked by saying that someone with very few posts knew alot.

At first I disagreed with the mod but thinking about it, its not really mine to tell ppl
how much they should and shouldn't know based on their posts :-)

 

I repent.


There is hope for all mankind Smiley Very Happy

Helpful?

I'm being 100% serious with this. Why are some people so distinctly and consistently rude, condescending, and plain unhelpful on this forum? 99% are so great. Why are the others allowed to answer people with non-answers and jokes and rude responses? No one wants every question to be answered with "it depends" or "your credit sucks" or " figure it out yourself" We were all credit-babies once. Why hang out if you don't want to teach from life experience?

Re: Helpful?

No way to control behavior, but inappropriate posts can (and should IMO) be reported anonymously.

People will only change if they want to change themselves. We just have to accept the fact that there are people like this....I know, it sucks lol. 

 

BTW, feel free to use the "report inappropriate" button on the "options" drop down if a post is not FSR.

Re: Helpful?

Added this to the forum etiquette thread as a reminder to us all to be more kind when responding. If you're not able to be kind when posting, I would hope that one would understand they don't need to post anything at that time.

I would urge anyone who sees posts that are being made that are rude, condescending, or plain unhelpful to report those posts to the mods so that we can see them and try to fix the issues.

I agree. When it's the same people doing it over and over, and nothing changes, it gets very frustrating. I've seen new people not come back because of this, and have seen established people leave the board and give this specifically as the reason.

 

 

I hope this will change in the New Year as we all re-evaluate what is working and what is not. Smiley Happy

Re: Forum Etiquette

I hate when a credit card isn't a good fit for someone, so then they troll every thread related to it and go "that card sucks"
