I know this has been mentioned before, but some kind of response from newbies asking for advice would be a good thing. I think it's happening more and more, and it makes me, and I'm guessing many others less inclined to help. A 'thank you' is always welcome, is it not?

The Internet has created a culture where all content is free, yours by right and therefore has no value.

If you feel it is your right to post a question and get an instant answer, or grizzle when it doesn't it appear, why should you feel a need to thank when they merely give you something to which you feel you're entitled?

In other words, I agree completely, BBB, but you may be fighting a losing battle: the offenders drop in, get the information they want, and foxtrot oscar in short order.

Then less and less of us will bother helping, which is a shame.

It's not from today, but it is quite a recent picture of 'Youth''.

I'm not sure how he's to blame though. *wink*

I usually have to restrain myself from giving a sarcastic reply to offenders who ask a question, and it is obvious that they are too lazy to google the answer themselves - I am not prepared to do their work for free.

In contrast for genuine and polite first questions, i tend to try and follow generic forum good practice, and welcome them to the forum. Those few words of welcome are simple to type, but they do make this forum seem a friendlier place for newbies.

I notice several of you regulars, try and do the same as well. Keep it up. *drinks*

To which the only answer is to quote our prolific latest member defriggit (or near offer), and say

"빅브라더스카지노사이트\\り KKK747。Comり\\릴게임신천지"

which I think is something to do with a white-supremacist airliner.

Are you sure it's not something to do with the correct etiquette when serving a Dutchman?

And the thread has been resurrected, though thankfully, Musical Youth haven't been. *biggrin*
