So, I know at times I'm just as bad as any others here about being a prick to others, but is there any way we, as a group, could knock off the useless arguments and shit talk that always ruins every thread in here? I'd like to make some suggestions: - let's keep the responses on topic. the recent blu-ray burner thread is a prime example of how we all end up in the weeds on a fairly straightforward topic. - let's not be dicks. if someone asks a seemingly stupid question (whether just ignorant overall or completely lacking in details), then give them the benefit of the doubt and try to get them on course with either some questions to get the right info out of them or some on topic comments (again, not in a rude or obnoxious manner) to point out the correct information for them. - if someone else is being a prick, just leave it or take it to PM. I'm not pointing any fingers because I've been as bad as anyone else, but man this forum is all but useless now.
