Default A novel idea!

Instead of belittling people with smart comments why not offer use full advice? That way all the members can benefit. I understand every forum is going to have "keyboard cowboys". You know the kind that have a smart answer for everything without offering anything use full. These are the same guys that are miserable so they try to bring everyone down. Not me!

John,

Do you really care that much about a group of anonymous internet users? You're beginning to appear like another guy we had here that became enraged whenever he perceived a negative comment. As if the world should be free of negative comments. And again, who cares? Forum members can dump all the virtual crap they want on me and it won't mean squat.

Is being so sensitive a generational thing John? I'm really interested to learn about this social behavior.

I don't think by some comment somebody can bring you down if you know why you are here and what you are doing.

Ignoring is a good way

I have visited this site frequently but have less than one year's "time" here. What you call "keyboard cowboys" are often long-time users and some of the most knowledgeable and helpful people on PaintTalk.

You need to understand that these guys have seen literally thousands of questions such as "How many square feet do you get out of a gallon of paint?"
As this site is targeted specifically to and for professional painters and painting contractors, such questions scream of a total lack of professionalism.

I'm not calling you a hack or a DIY, but try to not get offended or even mad about any of the responses. There is way too much useful information to be had. Look at these people as voluntary mentors, some of whom might be just a little grumpy at times.

Agreed with all the above. When I first got on this site, I loved stuff like, "whats yer favorite brush?" Yawn. After reading literally thousands of posts about stuff like that and what paint sucks worse, believe me, it gets old.

I went and read months and months worth of old threads, because most likely, the question I had, was answered in depth already. That saved me from getting roasted. I did, however get roasted on one of my first 10 or so posts anyway due to my enthusiasm. Kinda was embarrassed...

You will enjoy your time here much more if you have a sense of humor.

I've seen genuinely mean spirited posters on other forums, but not here.

My philosophy is that I look for the best interpretation of the post and it could be I misunderstood.
I've seen so many explanations of misunderstood posts.

I left two photography forums because they degraded into political trashing and profanity. Even on those forums I could have just stuck with the posters I respected and enjoyed and ignored the trolls.
Sometimes I wish I did.

This is after all the internet. So many keyboard tough guys out there. Most are just like this online and nice people when face to face (mostly from my experience, not speaking for all).

Learn to ignore the posts by them, we all have enough stress and crap in our lives to let some keyboard jockey ruin our days.

Used to work with a guy who fancied himself to be quite the singer. He used to sing that song as, "Like a limestone cowboy". We never had the heart to correct him.

When I first started posting, I was accused of being a DIYer, and then a spammer, which I can assure you is not the case.
I think someone described their initial stint here as "bootcamp." You can glean a lot of useful information from this forum AND have a few laughs. You need to chill out a little, without some humor this would be a boring forum.
