Personal attacks are hard to avoid when one person makes a general attack on several members of the community.


With that said...OP wouldn't it be better to receive any form of help than none at all?

Actually they really aren't. Let's leave them out or the thread will have to be closed. I would rather have an honest, but friendly discussion.

You tell em Fort.

This is a community to help people. Not attack. If you have a different opinion on the matter, courteously bring up your side. Everyone has different viewpoints on here and that's what makes this place great. But we don't want to snuff someone else's opinion out because it's not what we think.

In my opinion sometimes having a link works to my advantage, especially when dealing with cycling, fish profiles etc. sometimes a question can be answered simply with a few posts from other users and other times it might require me referring back to it a few times for missed information. That is why people write articles for the site. There are quite a few great articles on the site that I have referred back to many times that helped me along the way with information that people may or may not include when answering questions.
