lrn2internet OP. If it irritates you, stop reading it. No one is forcing you to post or read responses.
Not all of us newbies agree with you. I'm new, and I spent the time to lurk and learn about this board. For example, there are three posters that I notice regularly - Tarpon is seriously intense but her advice comes from past experiences that effect her perspective. She's usually spot on, and doesn't beat around the bush. I would value her honesty should I ever post and get a response. MLE is similar, but more abrasive in her comments (how I read them)- however, her responses are generally well-reasoned and come from sound logic. ReturnofKuus has a bunny as her profile pic so I am obligated to love her. Also I agree with her 99% of the time. She, like the others, will tell it as it is.
There are some posters, whose names I can't recall, that have serious reading comprehension issues - but you know what...I -ignore- them. Because I lrnd2internet.
The beauty of the internet is people can put whatever they want on it. It's up to you to filter out what you will and will not react to.
Also, this is not some sort of religious/spiritual/whatever community where people of like values are supporting each other. The only thing Thenest.com cares about is how many ads you click on, and how many things you buy from their store. These forums are just a way to keep people coming back and drive their revenue.
