Some regulars on this board are consistently patient when newcomers ask questions that belong at best, on the FW board, and direct them there. There are others that are consistently rude. It takes no more energy to be nice than to be nasty. I am new to MI myself and learned that most questions can be answered by doing a little digging and reading on your own. I also have the benefit of a friend involved in MI who is more knowledgeable than me and answers my questions. I know better than to post elementary questions here. But there are those that are not familiar with the rules of conduct and it wouldn't hurt to treat them with a little more kindness. Either don't respond or direct them to where their questions belong.
