I stumbled across this message board whilst looking for some P
resources. I'd have to say 90% or MORE of these threads have peopl
flaming and talking ****! Is everyone that bored, or disgruntled a
life that instead of ignoring a post they don't like they actually pu
forth the effort to insult a person. Do they like trying to creat
controversy? Maybe they're trying to be like that squeeky wheel on on
of those reality shows?

It's kinda sad really, I'm now browsing through threads not looking fo
information, but looking for what rediculous things someone will sa
next

Bye for now

If you read the newsgroup for a while, you will discover that there
are some people (Hecate and edjh come to mind) whose posts
are highly informative.

You'll find more 'ridiculous' things than 'rediculous' things ;-)

Smarten up there!

OK, well, here's some information:

1. This isn't a "message board" it's a newsgroup and an alt one at
that. alt stands for alternative and in this case it means an
alternative to the moderated, always polite, never offensive and very,
very boring "company" and "mainstream" groups. Consequently, you will
get all sorts of comments.

2. A newsgroup is NOT help forum. It is a group centred round a
particular topic of interest to the people that go there. As a
newsgroup, it is an arena for discussion, nothing more, nothing less.
Any help that is given is done because people want to, not because it
is the raison d'etre of the newsgroup.

3. if you want a help forum you're better off going to one of the
mainstream newsgroups or company message boards/forums. If however,
you want to discuss the subject matter, or anything else for that
matter, or to join in a lively community with all that entails, then
by all means join in here. Just don't expect a message board or
anything other than as wide a range of people as you would encounter
in real life, talking about anything that comes to mind and only most
of which is about Photoshop.

Actually, what's really sad is that people aren't told what a
newsgroup is, what it does, and what the alt prefix means.

Hope that helps.

And the beat goes on. You have just acted like the people who you complain
about. Get real.

Welll....see, for them (and by them I mean the people posting
with forum4designers.com addresses and sigs) it IS a message
board because some idiot is feeding and forwarding from a web
based message system to this group.

>that. alt stands for alternative and in this case it means an


Actually.... alt stands for Anarchists, Lunatics & Terrorists, it's
from the 'great renaming' of the past when usenet was reorganized.

What's really sad is the stench coming from behind me, man

I have been pointing out those three little letters to people for quite some
time now... seems that there is a new crop of the uninformed sprouting up
each day.
