Default Why?

So... I will ask mine

Why do people post 10 topics in under 3 minutes all of which are completely...stoopid....


Ok...sorry for the rant. Just would be nice to see some brains in this day and age

Can't help but remember all the folks who said everything going RTR would hurt the hobby in the long run and getting chewed out for their trouble.

We had somebody post on RCShortCourse awhile back about having a puffed soft LiPo and stabbing it with a pin to "let the air out"

You know what my local track does with puffed Lipo's.

They throw them in a ditch next door and shoot 'em with a 35mm pistol.
I guess to get a kick out seeing some fire. Bet that voids the warrenty thou.

It's simlpe, they need their self gratification. They post the same dumb question in mutiple threads, so they get their answers as soon as possible.

I think that the search button being creatively useless play some part in it.
Along with the FOR SALE threads that dilute all thread for people that read per "New Posts" option

You are right though, multiple starting threads is dumb... look how new i am! I Put in many hours scanning "Off road" section and "electric section" but i still pulled a few no-brain questions out of my hat

The other one that always bugs me is to open something like the chassis-specific sections we have on RCShortCourse, say, the Associated SC10 page, and see something like "Hey, I've got an SC10 with a Spektrum radio, Hitec servo, and Novak 13.5, and every time I give it full throttle the steering twitches." OK, I'll give you that it's a perfectly legitimate question, but it has nothing to do whatsoever with the SC10 truck itself and the original poster would probably have a much better chance of getting their problem addressed if they'd posted it in the Electronics section and not the SC10 section

I see it on here too, somebody has some weird radio glitch they need help with, only instead of posting in the Radio and Electronics section, they post in Electric Offroad because the radio's in their Stampede or Blitz or something.
