Can the people who frequently use this forum please respect all users when they comment?
**Please read this entire posting, only comment if you agree with what is said. This is not a joke!
Just the other day when I re-registered my new blog and setup an new account I saw a posting on "Etiquette" What I read is in response to those who post a question. That post only addressed the posters and not those who comment or reply.
My point here is that the users who reply should not be negative in anyway. They may not know all the issues the user who posted is having and when they specifically ask a direct question.
Everyone should be friendly in their posts and not act like a jerk if the person has a mistake or not too familiar with things.
The community's responsibility here is to help users not gang rape them. If you don't understand what the question means you should ask the poster for clarification.
You should never add off topic info if it was not solicited. Don't assume everyone is as smart or dumb as you.
Already today I have 2 forum Nazis' (people who harass others in a forum or chat) inject hate into their comments. I feel this is totally an act of abuse... HATE is not just a racist thing... it seems that some people here hate the users who are using Vanilla who are not programmers like themselves.
I am here for business, I don't need immature people wasting my time or adding things to my posts when this is the official forum for customer service and support for Vanilla.
My opinion is that this help service should be via a help desk rather than an open forum. It will only destroy the goodwill and feelings new users will have and possibly cause them to choose another platform if some of the users abuse the clients who need real help.
Who knows if the user you insult wants to test Vanilla and then use it for a major project. As for me I don't need to justify myself or stoop to their level but today I wanted them to know how they screwed up.
In this cyber world it's hard to tell who people really are.... so don't assume you know them and spew hate their way.
I disliked the 2 posers comments and assumptions, they were way off base and only showed their lack of business sense and maturity.
To all users, respect each other and walk away if you cannot treat people right or act in an ethical manner. This is not your business or blog so act like a visitor to their headquarters.
Don't piss anyone off, don't tell people what to do, don't inject hate if you are an ass.
Just leave... leave the forum in a peace that all users can enjoy. Actually most users come when they have a problem, I think the company should only let users with a valid training be allowed to offer help with users forum questions.
I really dislike people who act like this... very disruptive and anti-productive.
So all USERS who read this and also want a peaceful forum I applaud you. Otherwise grow your own forum and hang out there.
Today I am very upset and will not stop until those who act this way STOP their hateful ways. Just because they can write a little code does not mean they have a superior status. Get a real life!!!
Don't be so self righteous. Learn from the hosts. Act like your in their home. Respect their clients. Respect all users. Post good posts or don't post at all!
