[size=14]1.) Treat others how you wish to be treated. Don't be rude to newcomers; don't give them shit for asking a question that has been asked multiple times.
Yeah....that's always the worst part of most dread forums....you get someone in there who doesn't really know what to do, and the immediate response is usually some mean shit about learning how to read or looking for the answer.
I think if you take the time to even bother replying to a thread like that, you might as well be nice about it. There's no point in being all elitist and shitty.
I agree wholeheartedly with this statement. I'm quite new to forums myself, so I'm not so hip with how everything works. This is the first forum I've ever been a part of and it's pretty confusing, but I'm glad I decided to join. After paying attention to this site, my dreads have never been more healthy or more clean in the almost 5 months that I've had them.
