I normally stay pretty quiet around here. When I feel I can offer a solution, I speak. If I have nothing to offer, I remain silent. That being said.... I like growing hot peppers. I'm a member of a forum dedicated to peppers. People post the same questions over and over again, year after year. New members join all the time, and they all have the same questions. The established members, the moderators, and everyone else offers advice to each question. I have never once seen the level of hostility on that forum to repeated questions than I see here. If you find moderating tedious, step down. I get tired of seeing you people whine about everything. I've never seen a whinier group of grown men. If you can answer a new member's question, answer it. If you can't, advise them where to look for answers. If you don't have anything to offer, stay silent. I tell everyone I talk to that the biggest group of women I know is the truck forum. I know the owner of the pepper growing forum on a first name basis. People argue and disagree all the time, and everyone understands that's just how it is dealing with people. You don't like it? Stop doing it. Good day.
