What's with all the stupid questions being asked in this forum lately. It's not new but it seems to be a little denser now.
Stuff that's been covered a million times, like clear taillights, Questions from people who want to install something but don't know which end of a screwdriver to hold, assuming things about Escorts that are false, I don't wanna get specific, but I wnat you guys to. List them in here. Man it annoys me to no end.

I hate the n00bs that ask "where can a buy a turbo kit?" and the people that assume the euro Escort is somehow related to the 2nd gen. I also hate people that want you to hold their hand through a process that there is plenty of information about. Then there is the 25HP ebay speed chip. :roll:

I find it most infuriating when people completely ignore the stickies. There is a lot of really good information that people took time to type and compile. That is the entire purpose of the stickies; to avoid combing through mountains of search results on commonly discussed topics. Why people don't just read them is beyond me.

It's annoying, but on the other hand it also means that we're getting an influx of new Escort owners, which is always a good thing. The fact that they don't spend three days pouring thru all the stickies and FAQs and searching just means that they are anxious. They're all new to Escorts, and the ones who make noob posts are probably new to forums in general. You can insult them for knowing less than you if that's what makes you feel good about yourself, but it's not very beneficial to anyone involved, or to the forum as a whole.

^^ explain how it's a good thing to have more people to hate. I already hate all of you and now you want to add more? I don't have that much Escort hate time. I would have to cut back on workmate hate time.

Okay, i admit, I have asked a few dumb questions, and am informed, am I still labeled as stupid to others? just curious. I have brought a few good answers to the table in the past. But I do tend to feed into the people that ask the same answers stickied right over their post. I'm a helper when I can.

BTW, MadBrat, I've maxed out my co-worker hate time. Not getting NE thing done :eek:

JeffScortLX's siggy comparing Escort ownership to Denny's Reseraunts comes to mind. :roll:
