Subject: requiring a search prior to posting a new thread

your site has some stupid quarks and that is why I do not post there anymore one is requiring a search in order to post. not only is that bad but after you search I still get the same message. I will not post on your site until that problem is corrected. No other DIY audio sites require this. Thanks user ppl

Question ????????????

Hey ppL,

I don't understand your prob. If it's about the search you have to do before starting a new thread: you have to check a little box on top of the opening post form. You don't even need to make a search, the only thing you have to do is to check the bloody box!

Why do you insult people for something like that? That's poor behaviour.......

I did not understand about the check box untill alot later. poor behaviour on my part Perhapps However if you spent the time i did trying to get this solved you would not be at your best ether. My point is that in no way should a Modorator or anyone else be so Vulgar in a reply people is it Just in the U.S.A that this matters and the rest of the world this is considered ok?

Can't really see how it could be more obvious since it is there at the start of the page:

Have you searched?
(Required)

That does not however justify the vulgar reply. Other things may.

On the other hand I personally think that that question is justified and definitely should be there. If there was only a way to check that a search actually was performed would be even better. That way we wouldn't have thousands of threads on heatsinks and PSUs for Aleph 5...maybe.

Yes i totaly missed the Checkbox for searching. this is not required on the sites i frequent the most so it did not occur to me that this was a requirement on these fourms. Yes my primarry complaint is the Vulgar reply I could have lived with anything elce. Like, Hay stupid... ect. However To reply to a members request for help However moronic it may seem with such a Reply is totaly unexceptable and i have Never in my life got sutch an answer from an Internet Administrator. People in that Posistion are to use tact and not fly off the handel like that as thay are not fit for that Posistion if that be the case with Them. dealing with the Plublic should be by People that understand how to do it right. How long would say Microsoft Keep such a person?

Default treated etc

PPL,

If I may put this a little bit more in perspective, this was your msg:

"your site has some stupid quarks and that is why I do not post there anymore one is requiring a search in order to post. not only is that bad but after you search I still get the same message. I will not post on your site until that problem is corrected. No other DIY audio sites require this. Thanks user ppl"

Who do you now think is "flying off the handle"?
I do not endorse the vulgar remark, but after reading your msg I can perfectly understand the frustrated remark by a monitor. Not agree, but understand, read what I say.
It would show a lot of maturety from your side if you would acknowledge that.
