I'm more guilty than anyone else. I simply can't tolerate people asking questions on a forum that a simple web search would provide the answer to. I don't understand why you would ask a bunch of truck drivers, police officers and aircraft mechanics how to fix the flux capacitor on your delorean if Doc Brown posted an article about it you can find on a google search.

I also can't stand genuinely trying to help someone and then not receiving a response. How many times have people registered here, asked how to fix something, get a bunch of troubleshooting steps from people who know and then never respond?

Marine 1 signs up at Tun Tavern in 1776 and gets a complimentary beer.
Marine 2 signs up at Tun Tavern in 1776 right after him and gets two complimentary beers.

Marine 1 looks at Marine 2 and says "You know, in the old Corps we only got 1 beer to sign up."

There's always something better about the way it used to be, but it wasn't really, you just want it to be that way.

Funny you mention this, I was looking for instructions on how to reset the code on the keypad for the garage door opener at the house. First link that came up wasn't correct for my opener. Second link wasn't correct. Finally the third link showed the correct way. It seems that the internet is a great place for information, but not all information is always correct. I used the door opener for example, but there is many things someone on here could answer better then a google link could. If that is what they do to make a living, having someone to ask questions is great.

There is another reason why the people you meet in person on naxja has a totally different feel from the forum itself. It's because no matter how hard you try to make the point that naxja is a club with a forum site in reality it is a club...and then it's a forum site. There are a ton of asshat keyboard commandos here that you will never ever see at a run or an event. They will never become members, they would rather just pound away and try to let everyone know how smart they are while at the same time being jerks about it and scaring the new guys away. With the exception of a few (josh) most of the old timers are pretty tolerant of newbie dumb questions.

then you kiss him
