    Disrespect

    Lately this has reached an all time high around here and I find it discouraging that there are still alot of good ppl here who just want some help and advice. I'm done arguing with ppl if i see someone being disrespectful to anyone here who is trying to help them they will be ignored and i ask if i don't see it, please post the thread here for me and others to see so that we don't get sucked into their little game as well. I advised some ppl last night and could see they were just being immature so i ignored them, then today i see they posted pornographic content and were banned so I think I made the right call. I'm not gonna say anything to any staff members as they allready have enough to do around here and should not have to babysit all these ppl with childlike behavior. All I am saying is that if you get disrespected like that, let us know by posting it here so we know all the facts about the op before we decide to try and help.

    thanx

    Some of these posts have been very disappointing to read. There's too much beneficial information and far too many good people here who post day after day trying to help others, to see such blatant disregard going around by a few bad apples. I know we're just on the internet and we all get to hide behind these monikers, but that's no excuse not to represent yourself with any class. I don't care if you're 12 or 22 or 62, there's just no excuse for it. Am I being naive by expecting better out of people? Maybe. Fact is I just don't care. People should have more respect for themselves and others, regardless of the circumstances.

    So yeah, I think this is a good idea. Thanks odd.

    I agree oddgriffin. Too many people come on here and want to be hand fed. You tell them to look at tutorials then they fart on you for doing so. Great thread i am sure I will be posting a few names on here.

    Thanx for bringing that up ithian, and thanx for taking action junkmail. I had to go to the store and get my son one of those wireless sensor bars, which are friggin cool as heck lol.

    You folks see what I mean about all this? It simply means when you go to help someone you know acts like this, they will say anything to make you mad and they are not worth it. Not when so many ppl come here and act respectful, get help, and thank the members that help them. Some of these ppl give feedback on how things went with the advice we gave them, and some start to try to help others and maybe donate to the site. Don't let these bad apples get you upset.

    Well at the time i was thinking that i didn't want to do a diservice to the staff by bothering them with things like this. I was always hesitant on reporting posts and didn't want to be the guy who was ignored for reporting things all the time. Obviously things have changed for me and ignoring isn't necessary anymore, but for the folks here that try to help out, they deserve to know how their fellow members are treated.

    We have had a few ppl come in here and act this way toward ppl, then days later when noone knows or remembers they make someone mad and get them in trouble as well.

    LOL. I can see this thread turning into the online version of when they used to lock people in the stocks and put them on display in the city center for all to see and throw tomatoes at them for their naughtiness.

    Well I can't say I don't find that imagery pretty funny, and now I'm tempted to post a giant picture of a pissed off tomato chasing some dude (you guys see my posts, you know that urge is hard for me to resist lol).

    What I hope to see come out of a thread like this is a better understanding of what's expected of members here, and what just isn't acceptable. I mean yes, if the mods want these people reported then by all means I don't mind doing that. But I don't think these posts should just fade into oblivion because they were locked, either. If someone's being a d*** to one of my friends for no good reason I want to know about it, and I want other people to know about it too.

    This place is about helping people have some fun with their Wii's (sounds dirty if you ask me), and I think it's not a bad thing to show examples of what isn't appropriate, so that those of us who spend a lot of time here know who not to waste our posts on. (Any double negatives in that sentence? lol)

    Wow just read that post that was referenced. I hope he ended up in the reading room for that at least. You can tell from the amount of thanks each of the mods have to how much they have helped others. For the small few it's not worth the effort, they like many others will find themselves having to research it themselves anyway.

    Just remember your doing a good service to others never loose sight of that.
