    Mr. BG , Nov 8, 2017 :
    Life is tough these days on the forums.

    Hordes of Idiots mentally challenged fellow human beings are roaming the forums, making redundant threads everywhere, asking the same thing over and over and over again, posting crap (no, really, literally!) and photos of it too, generally behaving rude when you do.


    Now, we've all been there, pressure is rising, and at some point you lose it, you hit reply, the blood is pounding behind your eyes, your fingers are bending, changing, into claws and you are ready to attack the pathetic little rodent and kill it...


    Now would be a good time to count to ten...

    Take a deep breath...

    And use your superior mind bending abilities to turn this into a positive, instead of creating another mind boggling gore fest that leaves you shrieking like a rat instead of that proud Eagle you were in your mind.

    (And having the Mods clean up after you isn't something you want anymore at your age and level of wisdom)

    Here are a few simple reminders (because you knew them already) to refresh your spirit and lighten your burden.


    • Don't argue with idiots*
    • Because you can't fix stupid!
    • Not even with a bigger hammer.
    • If you decide to argue anyway, use sarcasm.
    • Idiots don't get sarcasm.
    • Without idiots there is nothing to laugh at.
    • Sometimes it's better to report than to reply.
    • It's better to take the piss than being pissed off.
    *they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.


    Finally, a quote (from a quote) from a wise man:


    Well, that's true too, bare with me... Not gonna happen because...


    What I meant to say is:

    Do not proffer sympathy to the mentally ill; it is a bottomless pit.
    Tell them firmly, “I am not paid to listen to this drivel — you are a terminal fool!”
    Otherwise, they make you as crazy as they are.
    ~ William S Burroughs. (Better known as @theshinybeast)

    If nothing else works, just sniff it...


    PS: Please add suggestions, I might just collect the best ones in this first post ;)

    @Mr. BG more wise words

    Gently inform the offending fool that they shouldn't feel to bad with their affliction , Descartes also spent far too much time in bed subject to the persistent hallucination that he was thinking. They are not free from a similar disorder.

    I guess if have permission to merge thread or close it, will be best solution but I guess they just give it to a few users who never closes until someone mention them and request to do that
