    I think we should start a reading class for the FTF. This class will be for people that don't read the title of a thread, the OP, and sometimes the post you are responding on. I know sometimes in the heat of the moment you just type something. The most common threads people do not read before posting are 1911, Hi Point, anything political, and the #1 thread people usually do not read in is anything that has the word GLOCK in it. You put any of these threads up and most of the time people will read and just post what they want. Here's an example, if someone ask "Which GLOCK do you prefer out of the G17 or G22?". Don't answer and say I would buy a 1911 or a M&P. Did they ask for some other brand, NO. I know most of us have a brain in here, so can we atleast try to use the part that lets you understand what you are reading. I'm looking forward for any suggestions on how to start a class. Thanks!!!;)

    I agree. Reading comprehension seems to be lacking at times. :cool:

    I had a red one once, but then the wheel fell off and my father couldn't fix it. So we got a new one.

    You do realize that what you are actually attempting to do, through some self indulgent exercise, is stop sarcasm and opinions on the interwebz??

    Good luck with that one - I do believe it's been tried on every single website since inception. :rolleyes:

    I would like to see more to a title than "1911" or "Glock" or "Hi-Point any good".

    Something like "Sight on my Springfield 1911 fell off." for example.

    But if I say "Ford or Chevy", as OP, I should expect personal opinion (and others to add "Dodge").

    Sarcasm doesn't bother me, it's the stupidity more so. Which as you can see has shown up already!;)

    We tried real hard in the beginning. We really did. But you can only answer the most basic questions 20 or so times before "I like turtles" begins to sound like a great answer. :D

    I think most well written requests get good answers and some antics. It's the kid with 1 post who wants to know which is better HK or Glock, in two different calibers or types of pistols that bring the lulz out.

    After awhile you just learn to expect it fathead. It's inevitable. Cane is going to recommend Colt, Robo is going to beat someone down over LEO activity, bkt is going to tune someone up in politics, Dog is going to continue to mock me and everyone else at every turn, Shihan and Mr Wray are going to compete for most nuked posts and Orangello is going to hate on bears at every chance....

    The cycle of FTF continues.....

    I know of the regulars in here, but you do get the idiots that will post in a thread and it doesn't have anything to do with the OP. I do understand after awhile you will get to "I like turtle" answers. That is a very funny video.:). It's just you deal with idiots outside of the forum and you just want fun and knowledge when I come onto the forum. Trying to be nice sometimes is a little hard without being a dick to some people.

    I try (really I do) to somehow answer the question, but dag-nab-it, some questions are just asking for a smart alecky answer.

    Those who have the patience to keep on track and work with the noobs have earned my respect.
