    Default Time To Leave?
    Wow!

    The lack of civility on this site in the last few days is alarming. I suppose that with the influx of new users this was bound to happen. It's a shame that so many threads sink so quickly into name-calling and insults now. Oh well, I still have the other site, which doesn't seem to have been affected as much, fortunately. I guess I'll be getting a lot more of my iPhone 3G fix over there from now on.

    I see your point, even a rational point such as yours invokes immediate cat calls as we can see here.

    It is unfortunate how crazy things get during announcements and what not, your best bet is wait until it dies down.

    Oh, and don't forget to report posts (click the ! under the username), that's always helpful for us mods.

    I say wait it out. People find the forum when they need something. That temporary traffic increases whenever there's a product launch. They'll go away once they get their new device in order.

    And, as posted previously, the forum does have built-in reporting tools for unfavorable posts. Use them.

    It's just how it is, ppl get excited and out of hand, It shouldn't be taken personally.

    With that being said I will start cracking down on ppl getting out of hand and am asking the staff to partake in the same course of action.

    The grass may be greener for now, but they'll be back. Current issues aside, this remains the friendliest and best iPhone forum around.

    i would also say to wait it out until the new accounts and rude commenters get their phones set up and stop complaining. People will start behaving soon and report the rude commenters so we can rid the forums of their negativity. i think you should stay, you might one day help me out or vice versa =]

    2nd this. Long time lurker (and iPhone owner/modder since 1.0.2), but only recently joined so I could post .

    The problem with all the iPhone sites lately seem to be the new iPhone users. It's the NooB asinine questions (showing their ignorance and impatience of even being able to read or use a search tool). Then there's the blatant demand threads/posts we all love (i.e. release of the new 2.0 pwn tools). Of course we can't forget the Apple haters that just troll around looking for a thread to jump into needlessly while increasing their post count, thereby giving themselves a sense of false self worth.

    And when these poor souls finally buy an iPhone, they sit in front of their computer screen, and somehow think it's their 'right' to know and/or do anything they want to it, without taking an iota of responsibility if they mess it up. Oh, and it's all supposed to be freeware cause that's how they 'roll'. And if there's one little niggle of a thing it doesn't do for them (i.e. cut n paste), then Apple sux and should be considered traitors to their customers and the world.

    Wake up. Go back to your PSP/GB/XBOX/Wii and/or whatever drug you're on.

    There's a reason Apple just sold ~1m iPhones in a 3 day time span.....go figure that one out for yourself.

    I agree with Napoleon_PhoneApart's sentiments. Its amazing to see so many smart-*** "experts" that are quick to jump on anyone that asks for help or posts something that is already known. Was everyone here born an iPhone expert? I don't think so. Try to remember that we were all "noobs" at one point in time and treating other new iPhone owners like garbage won't help the site grow, nor will it gain you any more respect. I'm glad to see the Mods and Admins step in, and I look forward to seeing some positive changes. Frankly, the small percentage of members that have decided to treat everyone like garbage are really offering nothing to this site and it wouldn't break my heart to see them go away. If that statement causes you to flame me, then I've proven my point even more.
