Does anyone else get annoyed when a person who just recently started using the forums try to be smart and criticize older members who know what they're doing by quoting rules, old posts etc? What should newer users know before making posts criticizing old posts?

For example waaaaaaaaaay waaaaaaaay back I posted on a thread about drummers that was in the general section. In my post I asked why is wasn't in the music section. It was then later moved. Well, today I got a quote saying "isn't this in the music section?" from a 13 year old. I have no problem with new users, but stuff like this has happened repeatedly and it's a little irritating. For any new users I suggest you lurk moar (for those of you who do not know what this means LURK MOAR) before making stupid quotes.

newbies FYI
If you see a an old post saying wrong section, but the thread is in the right section, know that the mods can move threads and that said thread was already moved

Know the rules you quote or you'll end up looking like an ass

Unless it's graphic, most threads you consider innappropiate really aren't

I checked search for similar threads and only got locked threads and bleach and naruto group forums. If it's a duplicate blame search not me.

EDIT: It doesn't make me angry like some people here are implying, it slightly annoys me and I wanted to voice my opinion in hopes that a few would cut it out.

Don't worry about other people on forums,it's just the internet...not worth getting upset at someone who's thousands of miles away.

Respect these days is earned, and should not be expected. Age, race, gender, Crunchy Roll points, and education are no indication or designation of respect to be given.

However, all I want from the "noobs" is that they posses a decent grasp of english and grammar. Leet-speak is mind boggling. :P

I know, I will have to get used to it, but I am just answering the topic

I agree, newfags need to lurk moar before doing anything. Kinda annoying how they always think they know everything like you said.
Hell, I lurked for 4 months before I actually did anything.

LOL i know what you mean, but i guess it's not that terrible. they might yet not know how the forum works, etc.

i reply to them telling them what "happened". but i don't like it when they keep on quoting back, and are being obnoxious.

i guess at first i was annoyed..and eventually i got used to it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

but newbies, keep in mind, first check out the rules, and look at how the system works here, and if you don't know then ask. =)

this will spare you from a lot of trouble.

Smart ass newbs don't annoy me as much as know it all been-heres do.

See, the newbs, they may just not know as much. But when you've been here and you're still a total butt head, and act like you've got something up yours, it's just pathetic.

I usually just ignore them. Any other time i would do this Come to think of it, if this was my reaction to someone like that i wouldn't be any better than that person anyway.
