    Forum Etiquette and a Question about it!

    This seems to get worse and worse all the time.

    A person posts an Image and then 29 quadrillion people quote the post and leave the image tags so that the image loads 29 quadrillion and 1 times.

    Now I dont know if it has to be downlaoded each time or if the browser knows to only download it once and stick it in the many places, but it fills pages with teh same images over and over, which is annoying

    So edit the damned image tags.



    P.S. Yes when done to babe threads its not AS annoying But the Online Law of Man states that a new but equally good picture would be a better choice

    P.P.S. Ya ya ya, I know my etiquette sucks more than Paris Hilton.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Nightmare alley! Fortunately not too terribly many of you are stuck with that option only, as I am at this point. Tis a small price to pay for the pleasure I get from this site however

    I'm with ya Yard, that's extremely annoying!

    Another one is when the first poster in the thread QUOTES the original message in the thread, wtf is that about?

    Or how about when people quote a message from another post in the same thread that's like 100 lines long, as if it needed to be posted twice! ARGH!!!

    Yes, I am easily annoyed lol
