For The Love Of Forums...

I belong to more than a few forums and on occasion I ask a question...
To make a long story short, I asked a question...a fairly simple 'yes' or 'no, not necessary' answerable question...

I was not expecting someone to reply with a paragraph that almost said without saying, "Why would you ask a stupid question like that?" and not only that but also, "This is why that question was so stupid."

I forced my typing fingers into a tight little fist to keep from saying what one of my college professors spouted daily oh so many years ago...

"There are no stupid questions just stupid answers."
Need I say he was a philosophy/religion professor?

So now I'm ranting here instead of there...is there any wonder I hate forums?

This is why I avoid forums..
Not only do you have people hiding behind a monitor, there are cliques and even you can sometimes get sort of a mob rule type thing going when there is drama - everyone ganging up on one or two people...
Perhaps try another forum of the same kind? Or pm a person on there who seems willing to help people.
Good luck :=)
