I understand the need to partiscipate, but I would much rather have someone post a "Hi, I'm Bob, I have a 7xxx, etc." Nothing wrong with an introduction post. I just have been hating the constant "where's the on button?"
and yes, Mriff, I am not the first one complaining about it, as you have listed other posts, in the past. I have even watched the video, it is funny and so true, so in that sense, maybe I should have just added to an existing thread rather than start a new one.
Maybe there should be a general forum topic of "NewBies", which would contain the FAQ, general stickys and be the only place a newbie could post fo the first 15 days?
