    I've noticed that some people on this site act like their moms never taught them manners. We are all here on this site to gain knowledge and network with professionals. Why then would you use explicit language in a reply to someone? What is the purpose of bashing someone you don't agree with? Argument is contrary to progress and a waste of everyone's time.

    Yeah, maybe I am being sensitive. Would I lose rep for this post? And why?

    I must say. These lads do tend to get their panties in a bunch. Quite often I believe. Now that I think about it, it's more like one big panty wad on this forum. Kids will be kids I suppose.

    Anywho pop tart Cheerios ,

    good day sir.

    How is my manners today ? ��

    OP attempted to spam his way up to 15 posts in an obnoxious manner.

    for this, he got bashed by other members, -repped, and an infraction.

    he then created this thread complaining about his inability to spam effectively.

    and now he's banned for a week.

    take this as a lesson in forum etiquette :)

    No one going to change their attitudes, just after reading your thoughts. We are just here to share knowledge and to make money. Creating this type of threads is really waste of time.

    Well as a general rule it's pretty stupid to show up new to a forum with only a handful of posts and presume to start telling everyone else how they are supposed to act. I read a couple of BigBuddy's posts where he talks about when he first joined. Apparently he had neg rep in the negative hundreds? I think about that everytime I get my ass in a crack.
