Why not? :wink:
So I just posted on another forum asking for advice and suggestions on a particular type of product I was looking for, and 90% of the replies were pure unadulterated bullshit and just plain fucking stupid. I posted an in-depth reply to one guy who was foaming at the mouth but at least trying to be half way serious. The next morning I log in and see another dozen or so replies listed in the reply total, but I didn't even bother to read them and just deleted the thread. Fuck it. The people replying had already more than proven their sheer stupidity to me and it was probably just more of the same so why bother? If I had read it, I'd have just wanted to pound my head through the computer screen and would have wanted to waste more time making replies to stupid people, which is a complete waste of time. *DELETE*
Same Shit Different Day on other forums as well. The internet has become quite polluted with nonsense. It was a lot better 10 years ago. And I can't stand it when I Google for something trying to learn and the top links are all various discussion forums where people either don't know shit but think they do, or maybe there's one person who knows what they're talking about and has half a clue but you have to sift through it to find it. You also can never really trust anything either. Gotta double check everything. Trust, but verify. Otherwise you have no idea if you're being fed a bunch of BS or not.
The Internet has also become incredibly commercialized with people trying to sell you stuff too. There are precious few "old school" Internet sites up nowadays that were put up by hobbyists who KNOW what they're talking about and are being 100% honest about things because they're trying to educate you and help you learn what they have, and not sell you crap. These are the most useful sites out there, but they're few and far between nowadays. You used to be able to hit up Google and these were the places you would find, but not anymore, or they're not even up anymore.
