I have noticed more and more that the responses to fairly genuine questions have responses with a lot of sarcasm and attitude. I understand people are passionate, as am I but belittling someone on the Internet is a cowardly move. This isn't everybody by any stretch, but I just see an increasing number of threads that turn to petty insults. I love the beer and brewing communities, the way some are responding isn't it folks. Anybody else notice this? Oh look, there is my soap box. I'll step do

Not to speak of. I find this is by far the most civil board I visit. Though, I may be jaded by NCAA sports boards...

Well, if we didn't have IDIOTS like you on here we wouldn't have to be so angry and sarcastic!!!!!

Very civil board, IMHO. Some may get snippy, but I haven't seen belittling, maybe I'm just reading the fun threads?

I think a lot of it goes back to people not using the search feature for....stupid questions...that have been answered 1000 times on the site. Especially in the beginning brewers forum, if they just search previous threads using the search feature then people wont have such a snippy answer for some of the questions which have come up 1000 times or are just plain dumb. The search features are there for a reason, even with that, some of the questions are so easy all you would have to do is google for it first. I always use the search on this forum or google before I post questions that could be or are probably repetitive.

NICE!!!

You have to understand something though... Once you've been on these boards for a while you see the same (or close enough to be the same) question asked over and over and over and over and over again... There IS a search function built into the forums, but some people (typically noobs) don't know how to use it. OR they give up after looking through the first 20 threads that come up from the search they did. Or they give up after just one (maybe two) search attempts. The majority of questions you can think up (from a noob point) have been asked before and answered. Increase the time frame for the results (go for 6-12 months) and see what you get.

Of course, then there's just the flat out moronic questions, or those that have all the markings of trolls.

Ha ha ha perfect response. I know most on here are good people, and for the most part everyone is cool and helpful. But what bugs me is those that are so miserable they try to make others miserable. There are those types everywhere you go, I guess.
