    Before hitting "submit reply", take a deep breath, assume an objective viewpoint, read over your post and ask youself;

    -Does this post make sense?
    -Is this post informative/amusing/useful?
    -Do I actually know what I'm talking about?
    -Am I being an immature dickhead?

    If your post fails to give the correct answer to any of these questions, then do everyone a favour and hit the "back" button. If you can't figure out which are the correct answers then you're better off never, ever using the "submit reply" button.

    My personal pet peeve:

    If you are going to post a link to an article or website, copy-paste the article or quotes of interest as well! If posting a movie clip, give a short explanation of what you're linking to! People with 56k modems do not appreciate a 5 minute download for a crappy 30-second clip!
    DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

    Don't challenge people to a fight to try and defend a claim which is not specifically about your fighting ability. You might well be able to take me in a fight, but I still won't believe your master can fly.

    You're young and full and enthusiasm. You perceive some of the shortcomings of the arguments and opinions presented here. Like a shining warrior of old, you're ready to take on the status quo with a carefully penned thesis. Perhaps it's on something highly original, such as why sport-fighting is not the end-all, be-all of unarmed combat. And now you're ready to post . . .

    Here's the thing:

    The odds are good that it's already been done -- and done better -- by someone else. So take a look at the arguments that have long since been made against the very same points. Because if you have any hope of anyone taking your post seriously, then you'd better come up with something original and well-reasoned. Otherwise, don't be surprised when you're chided, derided and perceived as someone excited to be a dumbass devoid of thoughts worth taking seriously.

    Better yet, establish some credibility by offering well-thought out comments on some of the little things in life. Because they're important too.

    USE THE DAMN SEARCH FUNCTION!!
    I've said this before, and I'll keep saying it.

    Threads need to closed when they veer off into la-la land.

    It's not about "censorship", it's about being able to actually use the search function! I do use it, and half the time it's useless. Absoloutely useless.

    I strongly advise you to lurk for at least a week before jumping in with both feet. Chances are, if you're reading this then you probably the sort of person who does this anyway.

    Taking time to get the measure of a place without opening your yap will lessen your chance of completely and utterly pantsing yourself for all to see in your first couple of posts.

    If you've already done the Internet equivalent of putting a lampshade on your head and puking on your own shoes, console yourself with the fact that your self-abasement provided enjoyment and amusement to a large fraction of the forum.

    Also, you may not be completely beyond redemption. Some people have stuck around anyway despite near total disaster. Either because they evolved beyond their larval newbie stage to become beautiful forum butterflies or because they now serve a role once reserved for dwarves who owned a pig's bladder on a stick.

    Oh yeah, the search function.

    It can be found by clicking on the "forum" button, then looking in the thicket of small text just below the 3 ads near the top of the page.

    It's on the left of the 2nd row: "|Search the Forums|"

    Adding to that, post necromancy is annoying.



    If you're resurrecting a two-year-old thread just to add your two cents, chances are we don't care and forgot about the topic long ago.
