As above. Newbies are asking questions on here and getting negative answers, WHY?
Why the unnecessary use of capital letters? It's patronising, and makes it no more likely your message will be read and/or understood.
This is exactly what i mean,
I don't have an answer for you @derrick but I agree it's a sad thing. Perhaps we should all try to be a bit more helpful and supportive.
I see lots of useful info being passed on most days - way more than negative comments.
And you think addressing people in a patronising manner will get you a sensible reply?
To my mind that makes you rather hypocritical, questioning the behaviour of others while your own is less than stellar.
The shame is that I don't disagree with your view, but by choosing to treat your audience like children you rather negate what otherwise would have been a good point.
I just seem to see so much negativity on here lately.
Link to an example, pls.
In my view when a newbie asks for advice...what bike? clipless pedals? Drop bars? Y'know the kind of thing...nearly all the responses are positive and helpful.
Some people on here like to contradict and pick on every word you say. They seem to thrive on it. I have had first hand experience of it but have developed an immunity to it now.
But to be fair, there is also quite good knowledge you can tap into. Ignore the vultures and concentrate on the good meaning members.
No they don't.
