WARNING to new posters

I've just started using these boards and have got some good advice and lots of posters have been helpful, there have been some sarcastic replies which have made me a bit nervous about posting but this one takes the biscuit....<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
I committed a heinous crime and spelt a word incorrectly and got the following reply from some idiot named STOGEY:<o:p></o:p>

What is seious? Is this some type of new language?

My give a damn's been busted


The thing is, the post was on the off-topic board about something I wanted advice on, my post wasn't offensive or inflammatory and I just think it was really unwarranted.
Needless to say, I won't be posting on this forum any more.

You should quickly learn how much attention you should pay to Mr. Stogey.....

Its all part of the neighborhood....I recommend you go with the flow...enjoy the good and ignore the bad...or choose to debate the bad a little

It was a ridiculous response. Don't pay any attention to him. There are so many wonderful people here. I think you will find mostly helpful advice. Don't be afraid to post. I really want to hear how your son fairs.

Though I have not yet had the pleasure. I have noticed that he is kind of like a red headed step child. Every time he says something everyone starts whooping on him.

"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

That applies directly to Stogey's comment about your spelling.

"Crazy Uncle".... "Red-Headed Stepchild"..... get the point???

At least you didn't get your own thread devoted to comparing your looks to that of a long-dead, extremely unattractive queen of England. (Been there, survived that).

Hang in there. The majority of us are pretty harmless.

Please do not let Stogey chase you away. Just look at some of his other threads/posts and you will get the big picture !!!

One quickly learns to take everything said here with a grain of salt. Don't let it chase you away.
