    1 person boycott of the forum

    With all the damn rumours and false claims and such that clutter up the forums on a regular day, I'm staging a one day boycott tomorrow as I can't imagine how many pranksters will think it's a laugh.

    As a mod for other forums, I really feel that doing such isn't helpful for people who are seriously in need of assistance or have valuable information to share.

    Even with offering off topic discussion forums, too many people can't seem to be bothered with having fun in the approptiate places. How many confused people are going to be wading through endless posts about this or that rumour with the then inevitable onslaught of posts pointing out the false and fake posts.

    Call me a stick in the mud or worse, but I'm just taking the day off regardless. I'm be having fun pranking somewhere else I'm sure.

    I agree that the prank posts add to the misinformation that sometimes clutter threads during times like these when so many people are just looking for some help. It was a very short time ago when the thought of screwing up an expensive piece of equipment was very intimidating. I'm hoping the moderators will maneuver the pranks to their own special home to help avoid confusion.
