    I see what you did there.

    Is anyone else fed up with the amount of unnecessary sarcastic replies there are to threads?

    Oh yes, I think there's far too much sarcasm on here, it's terrible, and it really really upsets me.

    Don't you just hate it when people are being sarcastic ?

    I don't think it is lmited to this place. Any internet place where you get a group of regulars tends to seem like it is populated by a bunch of *****. They are most probably normal people in real life but everyone has a keyboard warrior momrnt now and again..

    Is anyone else fed up with the amount of unnecessary sarcastic replies there are to threads? Seems like everytime i ask a perfectly genuine question some smart arse d**k head replies with a completely useless post about how you should use google/look harder etc etc. c*nt

    Anyway, rant over.

    The regulars who spend far too much time on here, think they own the place and fit the STW stereotype of being sad, opinionated and overweight bikers who spend more time talking about their 3 grand bikes than actually riding them……. yes.

    Every forum has them; I used to be a member of a quad bike forum that was particularly viscous.

    I left in the end because the know-alls were in the majority. One particularly annoying git had a Saved "Use the search button etc etc etc" post and then would post about 10 links that he supposed answered your question (but never quite did.

    I still want to punch the self-satisfied little c**t in the face even now.

    Only the first part of this description applies to me!
    Although the rest is quite intuitive.
    I am not averse to sarcasm but I agree there are a few on here who think they own the place.
    It doesnt bother me in the slightest to see similar questions asked over again. If its been done before then I simply ignore it.
    I dont have a £3k but I am waiting for the Sun to come up so I can go out!!!!
    edit: oh sorry the bit about being opinionated as well!

    Spelling and grammar pedantry gets my goat. Incorrectly spelt or constructed spelling and grammar pedantry is just asking for a pedant pile-on!

    If you wait long enough somenone will usually be along with a sensible answer though.

    Don't get all upset, but maybe you should google/look harder etc etc and someone is quite correctly pointing this out?

    Perhaps they are fed up of inane questions that are really more about drawing attention to the questioner than finding a response?

    Now if you'll excuse me i'll go back to my eating and saving up for a £3K bike.

    Well I'm a regular and that's about it on that list. IMHO 🙄

    But yes iDave is right maybe Googling is the answer on many occasions.

    There are some on here who only ever give a sarcastic /baiting answer which is a bit OTT/pointless/ IMHO.

    Thnakfully most of them have self outed themselves on this thread and I tend to just ignore them for the dull opinionated gob sh1tes they clearly are.

    Firstly, don't criticize others unless yours is perfect.
    "Incorrectly spelt or constructed spelling and grammar pedantry is just asking for a pedant pile-on!" you [u]SPELLED[/i][/u] Spelled incorrectly.

    It's a chat forum – get over it.

    Often when I post I get such remarks – more than not it makes me laugh at my own stupidity, poor grammar etc etc. I take the comments for what they are.

    There's a lot of truth in that.

    Personally I try and save my sarcasm / rudeness for the clique and attention whores on here though I mainly ignore them all now as it's wasted on them, they are too wound up in there self importance and their need to be loved.

    Did anyone bother reading the thread that kicked off this rant?

    http://www.singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/how-much-is-a-223-frame-worth

    two useful replies and one minor quip.

    Think you're being a bit over-sensitive OP. There is a fair bit of banter on here, but most of it is fairly harmless.

    I've always worked on the theory that I won't post any comment that I wouldn't happily say to someones face.

    "The regulars who spend far too much time on here, think they own the place and fit the STW stereotype of being sad, opinionated and overweight bikers who spend more time talking about their 3 grand bikes than actually riding them" agree totally, althoug I do own expensive bikes, mainly because bike bling is my only vice left.Hope to god (or any other made up invisible being) that doesn't make me fit the STW stereotype!! if it does I'll renounce my boingy bits and go back to time tialling 😀

    quad bike forum that was particularly viscous.

    Was it hosted on a slow server so that it ran like treacle?

    Ahem….

    For iDave and KINGTUT, you do understand that this is a forum, and as such an alternative to googling? Amazingly, some contributors are happy to provide useful answers. Granted, the 100th "what light" thread is going to be a bit dull, but it'll also be small as most people will have contributed to earlier threads.

    *slaps head*

    Wow! Thanks for letting me know. Forums are for people too stupid to try the biggest search engine in the internet where thy could type the same question and get THOUSANDS of answers without the sarcasm.

    (Tries to remember that the Google website might be a great big secret that dumbasses don't know about who then whine when non-dumbasses tell them they are dumbasses.)

    ^ so, no more questions about anything that could be googled? Your vision of this website sounds like fun.

    No, forums are for people who prefer a bit of human contact. Interestingly, lots of answers to specific questions are FROM forums. Does that mean anything to you?

    the spelling is s o m e o n e

    😀 Well spotted.

    Don't forget a capital letter and a full stop if you're feeling really correct though, Tim. 😀

    Jammy111 – get yourself on southerndownhill.com, you'll love it there. Everything is very sensible and very dull

    sorry but this post title just says "bring it on" really

    by and large this forum is fun and enlightening (in many ways)

    dont take it to heart, 😆 its all just banter…

    IMO the original poster does not have ownership of a thread, and volunteers to criticism and ridicule as well as serious reply

    Good Lord Mr OP aren't the 'Unwanted/Sarcastic Replies to (Dull) Threads' the whole point – that's the reason I come here so I can fnarr fnarr & guffaw (sp?) – then some d1ckh3ad can correct me on my grammur and speling…
