Two things I've noticed in the last few years related to Blackberry-focused forums:

-forums like Howardforums.com are being overtaken with stupid questions by people who have not even taken a single look at the manual nor have tried for a minute to figure out things for themselves. They don't appear to know how to click the "search" button either.

-in influx of posts from low lifes that can hardly spell, asking for things for free.

I attribute this to RIM focusing on consumers. Unfortunately, a certain segment of the consumer market finds BBs to be cool...

Well I guess we are all off topic here then as well. This was about how bad we all are. I looked at his original threads and see why the OP does not have fans:

OP Asks you for a copy of purchased software from you:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...me-8330-a.html

OP posts a useless post in a thread asking why anyone would use Hotmail (SUCK IT) is always encouraged in posts:
Hotmail account unable to add to Curve?

I can't find the Wi-Fi jail posts. Maybe they are deleted.

Wow, This is getting ridiculous. Not to be blunt, BUT if you don't like the forum, get the heck out of here.

lmao, okay i dont think that people with that mannerism are the type of people who are enjoyed on this forum. Lets make it clear that I was not sticking up for the guy just agreeing with a couple of the points he made.

For what it is worth I kind of admire the members of this forum. Posting in a semi-anonymous venue gives some the presumed right to say/communicate/try things that would, in regular society, be absolutely unacceptable. For the majority of heavy to medium posters there is a code of conduct.

This provides a certain comfort (to borrow a phrase) to those of us who are either leery or weary of 'leet-speak' punks living a life of moral and ethical ambiguity.

-simpson

/Thanks for the compliment, OP

Getting free wifi is a felony; guy should jump through his @ss to find the owner of the BB; it would be easier for guy to buy theme than ask someone to give it to him for free.

Who the hell are you guys? No other forum that I belong to is full of such prudes and people willing to immediately condemn others for trying to buck the system....

Not sure I'll be back here much, and I bet most of you will be glad to see me go. Have fun being douche bags....

You are wrong bro!! these peeps are not douche bags or prudes. They are, however, very very GEEKY, fairly opinionated and kinda cliquish. (probably not a word but u get the point) This is not so much a forum as it is a club. You are either in or you are not and quite frankly I'm happy to be "not". I mean how sad would it be to actually be like these dweebs and be accepted by them?

Agreed. This is getting out of control. This thread is of no value therefore I am closing it.

Good call, Thatz.

And as for the OP's original post, if he doesn't like it here, he can leave. Nobody asked him to sign up, login, or even come here.

People who want help and want to help others are more than welcome here. People who come here looking to do something illegal or unethical will not be treated with kid gloves.

It's the internet, there are LOTS of people here with LOTS of opinions. Get over it.

and yet you have over 400 posts, very amusing. But what was said by the other mods I agree with. Like it or not, no one here really cares if you do. If you dont like it, leave. Its really very very simple.
