Goldberg posted a thread a while back inquiring why people suddenly vanished from the T-forum. No, I’m not referring to the effluent-spewing cretins who were banished, but to T-forum regulars in good standing who no longer posted. Having been one of those regulars, and not having posted in almost a year, I’d like to share my humble perspective.
The main reason for me was forum etiquette or the lack thereof. How many times have one of you gone the extra mile, I mean really taken the time and posted a highly pertinent response… only to have the originator of the thread follow-up with (if they followed-up their thread at all) “anything else,” or “BUMP,” or worse yet, in-your-face contradiction? What more could a T-Form regular ask for than the “brilliance” of a neophyte, some thankless teen with the writing skills of a mentally
challenged 3rd grader who perhaps had all of 5
months training under his belt. Too much gimme, gimme, gimme, with never a modicum of thanks. All this had left me to wonder was posting really worth the time and the effort???
