As many will tell you - "discrete is elite". I think we can all admit to making this mistake at least once, eventually you will learn from it.
And on to other matters...
Right, so in your very first sentence you've identified that the users in question aren't considered newbies. And then you proceed to disparage and rip new users to shreds, presumably because you need to release your anger. Sorry, but this logic is fail.
While I agree this hobby attracts many "special" users that might aggravate some, take a minute and consider this is a community-based website and that tension isn't very welcoming. Personally I choose to vent offline when necessary.
Ok, so now you had a chance to climb up on your soapbox:
There are a few of us here who go above and beyond to help newbs and to help others learn things here. I dont know you and I dont know what you have given to this site and its members but I know what I have done and it is substancial. I have given up evenings helping people over the phone, I have met up with people and I have made a good deal of friends here.
Check out the wiki, take a look at the articles I have written, you do better, thats a challenge.
If you have a question and you are new and these scanners today confuce the hell out of you, I have been there and if I can help I am going to.
When it comes to the original posters happily mention that " whoa! I hear the OC Cops swearing and talking bad about people" and others engaging them with comments like " I am in K/W. What tower are you hearing them?"
Thats when I get angry. Keep what you hear to yourselves. If you want to talk about listeninmg to cops say f*cK and "rawwwwwggggg" send a BBM or IM to your friends. I dont want to see it I dont want to know. When they are active here in the GTA you are never going to hear it from me or anyone else with an ounce of sense.
Disrete is elite
And as for neubs, I am tired of the barrolrols et all who have no problem listening to a feed but give them a scanner and they do not know what the hell they are doing. They do not take advice, they ask the wrong questions they talk when they should learn.
I am not a moderator, my personality is probably too volitile to handle crap like that but ask those who know me if I am part of the problem or part of a solution.
