Holy cow - I admit I am writing this in a bit of frusteration - but it needs to be said anyway -
Some of you know who I am, for those who do not let me introduce myself - I am the buyer for RadarBusters.com and also a administrator of RD.net
One of my BIGGEST annoyances from this forum is the WHINING and flat out disregard for some of the most basic rules of any forum. I dont care if your a new member, long time member, admin or vendor. If you need a refresher on the rules of this forum, please take a moment to RE-READ THEM.
Everyday, I get emails about reported posts. Junk like "Personal Attacks", "Bashing", and my all time favorite "Name Calling"
Are you kidding me?
If you have an opinion, share it. But share it with some consideration of the readers of this forum. Share it thinking that a totally new person could enter this forum looking for advice on a detector and simply view our forum as a guest. What would those people think of the quality of advice they get if they are also reading nasty posts and silly crap that has nothing to do with the detector.
You may think your detector is the best, another may think your wrong. Deal with it. If you can't, well....I guess you should consider a career in Marketing for the detector vendor you are so passionate about. Then maybe you can do something more about it. But its not going to be done here on this forum with bashing, name calling and tactics that make us all look like unprofessionals. Share your opinions with professionalism. After all most all of you ARE THE professionals.
For some of you this is a hobby, some of you much more than a hobby, some of you its your business and livelyhood.
I simply ask of you all one thing - show some respect to the people who pay for this forum. Show some respect to the moderators who help make this the best place online to chat with professionals in this field. Before you hit submit, ask yourself, am I following the rules, am I being respectful to the community and is what I am saying adding something constructive to the conversation.
Please. I am so tired of emails reporting posts for these silly things.
Thank you all.
