I am not trying to point fingers at anyone, using your post (trevek) was just an example, if you are talking about the same post as the first. I am just trying to give the noobs here a chance to get some good advice. A lot of the people on this forum ask dumb questions. However, a lot of them dont know better, so why make them feel retarded? And OK, sarcasm should be allowed in some cases. It is just using sarcasm when someone wants advice. I know when I joined, I was nervous I would be shot down and made fun of. Luckily I wasnt. But many new people are, and in some cases they arent tring to be a troll...

so, when "monkeysofdoom" wasted 5 minutes of your life, and you felt the need to tell him so - that wasn't a pointless, sarcastic, unhelpful and talking down post?

whats the criteria? if you do it it's ok?

See whitedragon being a hypocrite, here

I think this would be a good rule.

1) Don't be so damn touchy!

whitedragon, I don't mind my post being used as much as the way it seems to be being included as some kind of trolling in later posts.

My post was a bit late in the thread and after some much harder comments. It was also a repeat of a psot I'd put on a similar thread in the TKD forum which I mistakenly thought was by the same poster.

Yes, it was perhaps pointless, yes, trivial, yes childish... not actually that sarcastic in intent (th second time) but not what I would have thought deserved to be included in the following onslaught.

Maybe I'm just too sensitive in my old age.

BTW, I do agree about not savaging innocent newbies. There was a case on the TKD forum a few months ago where a Youtube vid of a 15 year old grading for her BB was put up (not by the YT poster) and dissected as a terrible example of standards for BB. I don't recall anyone slagging her, rather than the grading itself.The poor girl was not a member of the forum but got to hear of it and came on very upset.

A mistake had been made. The thread got removed.

Alright this is getting pretty old man. I dont know if you read but I said I am not pointing fingers at anyone. You on the other hand love to make things personal. Alright first off, wheres the sarcasm in that? I actually did waste time watching that, and I was disappointed. I was questioning his confidence and style of martial arts.

My criteria is give people a chance on this site. If they dont know how to ask good questions, then just leave the place alone. If you dont know how to answer a question/topic, then just dont.

No it wouldnt be ok. I am a little sarcastic, but I am not trying to be a jerk to everyone on this site. I answer questions that some people may feel are dumb. Maybe you should give this a try and stop singling people out.

WD, just to confirm, I understand you weren't aiming anything at me in particular. Hopefully nobody else was, but later posts, not yours, seemed to lump it all under one banner. Maybe I'm just putting on the cap cos it seems to fit.

WD,

Ed's post wasn;t personal, he was just making a point. Agood point at that. It's hard to tell other's not to do the things you do,lol.

If it was personal, you'd know it.

This is probably pointless, but is this what martial artists are reduced to? If you cant take a moral hit from someone(on a FORUM!) that has literally no effect on your life unless YOU allow their actions to do so, then you should be training/therapy IMHO

Either way it ends up, people are arguing over what they want someone else to be allowed to say, and what other people can say back. IE: I want my cake and yours and yours and yours too!

Rules are subjective based on personal perspective.
People are subjective because they are the personal perspective.
This creates controlled diversity. This is generally considered a good thing.

Why make a pointless post about pointless posts when you make pointless posts yourself? Kind of like that guy who steals his cable and then calls the cable company when it stops working!

Martial artists are not different then any other people. I dont see where people get the idea that just because your a martial artist, you are supposed to be more "civilized".

However, aside from that you make some good posts. But I dont think me and you are talking about the same thing. When I say "sarcasm", I am referring to comments that come out of nowhere and are meant just to "hurt" the poster.

This isnt really a "pointless" post/topic. I was trying to back up some of the new guys. And try and find one comment where I make a "pointless" post, which is not found in the "General Talk" section, since many posts there have nothing to do with advice more as opinions. One with no point.
