    I've been noticing a ton of people getting on flaming bandwagons going on even when someone posts a legit question or is just trying to help. I wanted to take a second to remind everyone about the rules especially this one

    3 ? Your Behavior ? Use common sense and show respect to ALL of your fellow forum members. Do not flame, demoralize, demean or cause problems for anyone on the forum. Any posts that disrupt the general peace will be deleted without warning. Repeat offenders will be issued an infraction or banned at our discretion.

    It gets really annoying having to clean up after all these flame wars and if we stop ripping each other down after a share maybe people will start sharing more.
    • Thanks Thanks x 11

    Yes , you are right Madinaz , everytime someone share something , many will say this is crap etc , instead they should explain what the method is about and why did they think it is crap.

    I totally agree. First of all not everybody has years of marketing under their belt. What is a dumb question to some may actually be a very good question to others. We are all here as a community to help each other. We all must remember that our fellow forum members may not be on the same level as us, this isn't bad, just means they need the time and consideration that others gave us in the past.

    That's my .02 have a cup :tee:

    Thanks so much for the post and clarification of the rules...or repeat, I suppose. I have a hard time understanding why someone feels the need to flame or cut someone down. I too, have a hard time suffering fools...and don't do so gladly. Now, I'm not talking about the flamers with that comment, but about the OP's. But what you may think of as a foolish question or posting was evidently of some concern to them. So, in trying to help or ask a legitimate question someone demeans them by flaming them. Again, what's the purpose? Seems to me that when we run someone else down, what we are really trying to do is build ourselves up. I go back to what many call the Golden Rule...no, not he that has the gold makes the rules, but "treat people like you want to be treated".
