Don't let a few rude people ruin it for you. Most of us here are polite and knowledgable. Unfortunately making a thread about ridiculous threads was bound to attract just the kinds of responses you got. We have a place for the funny/silly threads (the Smacktalk forum), but sometimes people don't post those threads there for whatever reason. Stick around and you will find out that the respectful people outnumber the rude ones.
