I've really had to bite my tongue lately on other forums and social networks because of people who make derogatory comments on other people's builds. There's always room for constructive criticism, and people in this club do a really good job at making their comments civil, so it's appreciated that you all treat each other with respect.
Sorry, just aggravates me, especially when the offender has never done a build log to show off what they can do (probably because they aren't capable of making a build that's worth anything to be proud of, so they treat others with disrespect.)
Good day to you.
I came late to this party so I do not know what has piqued your ire.
Please understand, I agree with you and have left several forums for those reasons. I am a noob here and with many aspects of building rigs. Oh I have lurked for years. I just decided after a few bad experiences elsewhere to take the plunge here.
Please understand as a noob in so many ways I come with my hat in hand when I ask a question. I appreciate the time and thought that goes into a post and response. Please do not get me wrong; I have emailed CaseLabs some really off the wall questions. I shall own one of your fine products when life stops doing bad things to my savings account.
Oh, I have seen some intemperate comments posted here. The nature of written communication prohibits the normal feedback mechanisms we as humans have evolved to use. So please allow me to flip the script for a moment. You are a representative of what is in essence a major business impacting numerous people. You, Ma'am or Sir, actually respond here helping people.
I've literally read every post on this thread and you always adhere to the higher standard.
Simply stated the odds are you will treat any site that devolves into tacky nonsense by your absence. Your presence here is one of the factors that swayed me from lurking to joining and participating. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for being here and helping.
Try it this way; when I have some noob question about my shiny new CaseLabs case I hope you are still here and whatever provoked your ire won't cause you to withdraw your assistance.
Silly and trite but the English language leaves me few other options; thank you very much for being here and helping a lot of other enthusiasts. Even I've yet to avail myself of your assistance it is actually important to me to know you are here helping sharing your time and knowledge with others.
That was a long way around to say thank you for being here and helping and a an invitation for whomever earned your ire to to preform a biologically improbably act upon those that have earned your ire and frustration.
