"Tough Love In This Forum"
« on: March 24, 2009, 11:58:03 am »
Hi All,
this is my second post in this forum. I've actually been lurking around as a guest for quite some time.
But before I decided to chime in, I wanted to be as informed as I could be. Because I've noticed that a lot of
people don't actually take the time to read through past threads before they ask questions that are deemed "STUPID"
by advanced users of LMCE but are not as clear cut for a novice or noob.
So guys and gals, I'm not saying you should read the whole forum's content, (Which I did, btw) but the search tool is your friend, USE IT!
I do understand when guys like Thom gets pissed off at people asking the same question over and over. Do your homework people.
Because if all the answers were given to you on a silver platter, you'd never learn and you wouldn't enjoy the LMCE experience as much.
So instead of being part of the problem, be a part of the solution.

Your thoughts, John.

If a still is required for brewing beer, than I've been doing it wrong all these years! ;) I know what you mean though.

full ack lmce3000, but we will avoid harsh words in the future. There are quite some threads that are a collection of flames, offenses and such..

does somebody want to become forum administrator to take care of that?

he he! Based on our chat tomorrow, I will put together a "charter" for the moderators, that we can all agree on, then publish it in a sticky thread, for openness and transparency...
