I have certainly never done anything like that, Ryan. As we all know, I know everything and have done everything there is to do in a Neon, so my word is law around here.

No doubt, I'm guilty of that a few times on here (remembers the valve cover fitment thread) but I think the point of this thread, as Sean has pointed out, is more focused on the sheer stupidity and ignorance of some of our members (whether new or old).

I would love to see at least a captcha-esque tool used, where you'd have to at least be able to write out a simple paragraph with proper grammar and spelling, before you can use the forum; almost on the same point as forcing users to read and scroll down through the rules before being able to access the forums.

Alas, it is but a pipe-dream, since intelligence is essentially a freedom that some people do not wish to use.

We could implement a test on the rules of the forum before membership is approved?

YES!!!


There is a difference between stupid questions and stupid people.. Stupid people will make stupid comments no matter what the topic is.. Stupid questions get answered and people learn from it.
