    What is it, the holiday stress or what?

    Man, when I joined this forum I really liked the fact that you could actually get a response, from people, often more than one, when you asked a question in the various daughterboards.

    But lately over the last couple weeks I've noticed a WHOLE lot of snarking, cheap shots and outright hate on various messages.

    Hey everyone, chill. It's not that important. It's hunk of plastic, metal and glass.

    Hey moderators, maybe a bit of bud nipping is in order until February 14th and we can all feel the love, baby... :D

    Just my 2 cents.

    I'm not understanding.

    iPad is pretty simple. Maybe some people don't have a high IQ. But they could have enough for an iPad..

    I saw valentines stuff at a store today! One of our very C00L mods popped a "rewind" on a snarky thread.

    It was a good thing.:D

    I think you know which one...

    Here's another "snarky" (whatever that means) comment......

    Why is this thread in "iPad General Discussions" instead of "Anything Goes?"

    :D

    We know that but most don't even know about the Anything Goes section.

    But you are around to set the good people straight.;)

    Don't be hatin' on hate! Hate gets things done! We have computers because people hate math. We've got cars because people hate walking. We got McDonalds because people hate cooking for themselves. Remember the quote by Orson Welles?

    Hmm....the only hate that I see around are the pirates wanting free apps. They deserve anything rude that they can get IMHO.......

    Other than that.....could you give an example?

    I seriously thought Canada had better schools. :(

    USBill is responding to my Orson Welles quote from the movie "The Third Man" regarding Switzerland.

    And what about that little girl who ruined the last 65 seconds of the game between the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, played on November 17, 1968?

    I've noticed that the people giving the advice assume that the recipient knows the basics. A noob is a NOOB. Thats what it means! Give them a break! Be kind!
