There's nothing to really discuss anymore, because there's nothing you can discuss anymore without that one person showing up and ruining it for everyone.

I come online to avoid the monotony of everyday real life, but it seems like lately it's been just as bad, if not worse. I guess I should just take a break for a while.
I certainly hope this is not the case here. As my earlier post re: searching mentioned, the mods value courtesy a lot higher than product knowledge. And that is the way it should be.

Ahh, those kids. Lol, yeah that's the issue with the kids - I was rather rambunctious myself when I was younger and tagging on at different BBSs around town, then around the world.
I finally realized, though, that I could easily be a jackass any time - but people tended to respect me more when I was not, even if I didn't have a clue as to what I was saying (well, everywhere except XDA, maybe lol)

I agree with you though its getting increasingly hard to stay away from those sort of people. Hang in there.
Glad to hear it - the mods and green guys like myself go to great pains to try to keep that atmosphere exactly as it should be - fun, relaxing, entertaining, and knowledgeable. I, for one think all my fellow greenie beanies and the red heads do a fabulous job. Me, maybe not so much
