    I have to admit, that's the one that almost gave me a heart attack, if that was strictly enforced I would be redundant and only 10 of Micron Man's posts would be legitimate, and the rest of the guys would be dropping like flies, and what about out Squishy, I doubt she would be half as nice if she had to be nice all the time, lol

    I'm so glad you did that, I came over all comfortable and calm as a result, and I got a strange feeling of being safe, lol

    I am a member on a Dutch/Belgian model building forum, and when somebody asks for advice there, out of 20 replies 19 say "just effing google it!!!" and the remaining one says "I don't know", if you buy something from a shop or online and it turns out to be substandard, you are not allowed to mention it on the forum, if you do your post is removed and you are reprimanded in the form of a warning per PM, once you reach three of these you are banned, there is basically no way whatsoever to warn other members of bad deals or such, the problem is that most of the dodgy vendors are logged in as "Friends of the forum" and as such have advertisement on it, which you see even when your logged in, because of the amount of ads the form is difficult to navigate, especially if your a foreign git like me, lol

    About 18 months ago they thought about joining Face Book so they asked the members for their views, so I placed a post stating "Yes, get the forum on Face Book and show the whole world just how crazy it really is here", needless to say, that was instantly deleted, but the same day one the vendors posted a response saying Face Book was great and that he was on there and posted photos of all the wedding dresses he sold as a result, I complained to the mods asking what wedding apparel had to do with model building, I received a PM telling me to mind my own business, to which I replied "I don't have a business, if I did, my post would still be visible" and "when you need to know how to make a fiberglass nose cowl for your B52 Bomber, don't expect me to chip in, cos I'll be minding my own damn business".

    Shoot, I hope I haven't jacked this thread, Herb, Gimme a hug and tell me it's ok. lol

    just to get back onto topic :p

    Captain Barbosa said it well " the (netiquette) code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules."
    LOL

    And still on topic (strangely enough) "Guidelines" sounds far more fun than "Rules" but either way it's like fencing in the sheep, OH sheep, did somebody mention sheep? Madbrush likes sheeps ha ha ha
