Hi! amatuer martial artist here. What's your opinion of the best MA for street self defense? I've heard good things about Krav Maga (<-Spelling?).

That's an interesting question, I suggest you find a qualified instructor in your area.

None of these replies made sense. #1: What are you yawning about? #2: I can find nothing about this post that is against the rules I'm asking your opinion of which is most effective in a dangerous situation and #3: What does a qualified instructor have to do with this question? I'm not asking to be taught I'm asking your opinions.

well at least you not just being an @$$hole like some other people on here. I've read in different spots around the boards, and people aren't that friendly to newbies.

We are friendly to newbies. The problem is that had you actually read a fair amount of the threads here, you would know that most of us don't do "superior style" debates, and don't believe in a superior style.

"That's an interesting question, I suggest you find a qualified instructor in your area" is the catchall phrase we use to reply to questions like yours until a mod shows up and locks the thread, which will be anytime now. Have fun, and I hope you did learn something from this.

Welcome to the forum GEB. The reason for the somewhat 'cool' response to your question is because there are hundreds of threads devoted to this topic if you look through previous pages of content.
The conclusion to all of them has been that any and all martial arts can be used to defend yourself if it becomes necessary, and there is no 'best' or most effective. It is down to the abilities and training of the individual applying their chosen art that makes it usefull in the situation.
The seek a qualified instructor response is good advice. You say you are an 'amateur martial artist' what do you study? have you asked your instructor about realistic street applications of your current art? What was his/her response to your question? If you havent asked them yet, I suggest that as a logical starting point.

We are real people,not AI sentence generators, you have just called many on here a$$holes. Would you help someone who just came out of nowhere and insulted you like that?
Play nice, maybe introduce yourself properly, and start afresh- Sound reasonable?

This isn't a debate, it is a request of opinion. And personelly, I can find no useful information to add to my current knowledge within this thread.
