There are a lot of new people. Aside from being completely ignorant. They sure are rude. I'm getting aggravated. I'm not saying it's bad to have new people. But where some of these people come from and why they act the way they do is beyond me.

Sorry
I'm frustrated. I have no examples to give. I may also be dellusional, in which case, just ignore this and let it fly off the page.

I say let it go. Definitely no need to get aggravated. If someone does bother you that much, try to avoid them.

I cannot say I have seen too many annoying newbies around here. We have never had any significant problems with service abuse (that I am aware of, anyway), and I imagine that the mods/admins will sufficiently prod anyone who is not "with the program."

Well, the really annoying ones get people like me landing on their heads.

When that happens, it really smarts.

Don't try to outweird me, I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.

I think you should read more. I didn't say I was mad because they were new. I said a lot of the new people seem more rude then in the past. Do you often respond to posts without fully reading or understanding them?

I haven't noticed... most of the old loungers are rude to me too So I don't notice... though now I'm gona start looking at people's registration dates... that said I often don't read a full post when I reply if ti's like 3 pages long... though... I always make sure I've read the last full page though...

Edit after looking at my registration date...
For the record... HOLY CRAP I"VE WASTED ALMOST THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE HERE!

yeah, the boards are totally being flooded. New rule: you can't post until you have 1000 posts.

actually there is a continuous line of John Smiths that you can trace right back to the beginning of MacNN. I was banned from the lounge even before it was opened. How is that possible, you ask? It's a secret.
