    Without wanting to start a flame war .......... I pose the question:

    Can we grow up a bit please lads, I mean to say, there is a wealth of info to be garnered here, the mods do a good job, it is not as restrictive here as other forums I have joined, yet we get endless (read mindless) responses to threads that are basically "crap", ( and I point to [removed] in particular, mate, wake up to your self, you win spam poster of the year for your mindless non contributing posts)
    I joined this forum to disemenate my meagre knowledge, and learn from others here.
    I ask what is the problem? .............. I look at the "average age of guru users" thread and it becomes a little clearer.

    all praise to Hilbert and co.

    I will still visit this site for the info available

    Cheers

    P.S. I realise my view may be deemed trolling, and as starter of this thread I risk being banned if it degenerates, but I just had to say it.

    i don't know. the pub and the games section may be rife with spamming, trolls, and idiocy but the rest of the site is usually top notch in helping each other out or chatting about a piece of technology.

    :mad: btw, it's rude to point out people like that. shame on you. :p

    Anyone noticed the change in the pub desription?
    Too many people took advantage of the "talk about anything."
    There have been sopme bad apples of late, hopefully we'll ban em, they'll mature, or just leave. This seems to come in cycles.
    The rest of the forums are still great, and I still love the pub.
    I post a lot of mindless crap, but I keep it in the spam thread
    Bad form to call someone out. I'm removing that.
    If you want to close this, just pm a mod.
    edit: wait, we banned him, feel free too talk away :p

    I agree.

    The Guru3D membership should be only applicable to ppl over 18 years IMO

    hummm, there are a number of mods who joined while under 18.
    Also, I think at least one is under 18 still
    Also, some of the worst apples are well over 18, at least physically (or claimed).
    And a lot of useful members are under 18.
    /Over 18.

    True. Let me rephrase...

    The Guru3D membership should only be applicable to people who have the mind of an 18+ year old person.

    LOL maybe the registration should include an IQ test :p

    first off....... i don't suck any ones d**k

    secondly .............. after hosting a chatroom on MSN for 6 years the last thing I want/need is to moderate a forum.

    I just feel that a top notch info producing forum is being dragged down by mindless ego driven bullsh*t

    I will cease posting at this point as I am drinking and may be tempted to reply in uncompromising terms.

    calm, calm
    *breath deeply*
    Then beat teh crap oput of the twinkiemaster punching bag you have next to the computer
    Thats how I deal. Though it may become a micro_mini punching bag to get with the times.
    all the old spammers used to leave the pub and do at least something good, not anymore.

    I get what you mean

    I hang around the pub (here that is. come to think of it in reality too lol) a lot, but i do try to make an effort to nose around the Hardware forums to make at least some contribution and try to solve some peoples problems - it's a computer forum afterall, not a talk about whatever forum

    That said, the Gurus' Pub is one of the coolest threads/whatever i have ever come accross...

    I think what's going on is just a bad phase that will pass, just like recessions. People who write useless posts don't stay like that forever; I imagine our long lost friend Twinke Masta will grow up too and have better priorities later on in life. Either that or ppl will have serious problems in life.
