lol, mainly I was b*tching about modern music, but hey, cheers anyhow.
I mean that everybody needs to let loose in their teenage years and learn to grow up through the experience of bad decisions. They're what helps you mature into a well-rounded adult in my opinion.
Hmm. That must be why I've always been considered a square. I'm just not well rounded enough.
And here I thought Head-Fi was the one place I could safely escape alcohol and football references.
New members get a long (maybe too long) welcome message guiding them on how to use Head-Fi. It includes pointing them to the posting guidelines. If you look in the Introductions, Help and Recommendations forum, you'll see very detailed first posts from new members quite often now. So to answer your question: They are encouraged to think from the very start.
The second thing I've done was encourage people to click on the "thumbs up" button on good posts. Rather than focus on the bad posts, focussing on the good posts, where people get an email saying "X gave you reputation for your post" I thought was better.
I agree with what is being said. Focusing on the positive aspects instead of dwelling too deeply in the negative. I think we could do better especially when dealing with obvious troll posts, as they say, don't feed the trolls...which is actually not as easily done than said at times!
