Useless Forum Conflicts and Headbutts.

I've been on here more than usual in the last week or two and noticed that a 3 threads in a row I wanted to read turned into cock fights between knowledge and new guys for no reason.

- The board is suffering because of this. It has become obvious to me that some solid members and knowledge has fled because of petty bullshit.
- Equally, the wealth of knowledge that is being wasted by "unapproachable" members with zero patients is a drag and helps no one.

I have a few suggestions for all sides:

The Noobs:
Shut the fuck up and use the search, figure out proper terminology, bring even the most basic knowledge with you into your thread and the quality of responses will grow exponentially.
- Stop, read and observe for a while. 98% of your questions have already been answered.

The Experienced members, mechanics, machinists, builders, tuners, vendors, ect:
Please be patient with the new guys, plug your info in and other members will follow and use your experience. If they do not, fuck 'em, move on and don't waste your time bantering and potentially alienate yourself by misspeaking.

Everyone was ignorant to all of this at one point. Then some noobs eventually became the knowledge. Some never learned and have moved on.

I am not a moderator and have not been working turbo Buicks for decades. However, I have been the beneficiary of so much knowledge by searching, reading and learning from those willing to teach because of this forum and community. I'm grateful for it and hope we can collectively make this approachable for others in the future.

Though I appreciate your passion and intent, the internet has become at best a 50/50 bet on people being appreciative, considerate and cooperative. I don't see 50% of people using turn signals in real life; making an effort to be cyber-polite is a stretch for same mentality.

No argument here. I suppose I was hoping for a little more from this community.
