I hope this is posted in the "correct" area and contains the "correct words".
I am the owner of several sites that run forums. And as the owner for the past 15 years of such sites, I learned early not to be so sensitive to people's comments, mistakes and their over sites. Most posters do not intentionally break any forum rules, but they are there to learn, communicate and offer their knowledge to others.
Unfortunately, this isn't the case of this website. I have several friends on here and they "troll/lurk" and never post because they have stated to me how they were belittled by posting things. And I see it and now I am one of those that feel that same negativity.
If everything you post, someone has to chastise you for a oversight or mistake. To be chastised be cause you are trying to offer something and never mention that you are trying to profit from it( Instead someone assumes), get chastised because you post a link and you never make any other statement about the link, trying to help someone, or post a picture of something and be told how hideous something is you labored hours on and you are proud to share with others. Who needs that.
So, I am not saying I will not be "trolling/lurking the site" if I run across something I do not know how to handle. But, I will not be posting anymore.
Seems this site has enough "experts" and people worried if an I is dotted and a T is crossed.
To newcomers, I say you had better think 3 times, re-read every little rule, and be thick skinned before you post anything.
And to those that are going to bash my thread, that is what you do best. I will not be lured to reply to your negative comments and participate in your drama.
