I'll also repost it, because it's a good reminder about what this space is for (and makes it so our newer members don't have to go crawling through 118 pages)
For those who've been around this (or any) internet community for any length of time, it can get a little frustrating to see new people coming in and posting or asking the same things over and over again, without having taken any time to do any reading or research first. What can often happen is that people will put up with those posts for as long as they can, and then they'll vent all that pent up frustration on the next person to post. Then others chime in to vent their frustrations, and things tend to get ugly fast. It's unfair for every 100th poster to have to take the heat of all those other people's posts, and it's unfair for people to have to keep all their frustrations and exasperations bottled up all the time.

For a while, people would hold themselves to the rule of waiting until page two before getting snarky... but it didn't take long before some folks started intentionally replying and posting in a thread to fill up a page so that it would finally reach page two and people would sometimes get mean-spirited.

In order to curtail the page two shenanigans and the unloading of pent-up frustration on ticket seekers and other new users... we have the page two thread. It's removed from the original discussion, and an appropriate place to do things like vent, get snarky, or keep score on the games people play or buzzwords people use in their ticket posts. For this year's scoring chart, please see this post. Have fun, but please avoid being mean-spirited. As per our Community Guidelines, personal attacks are unwelcome.

NOTE TO NEW FOLKS AND TICKET SEEKERS: this is all in the spirit of cacaphony and good-natured fun. If that all seems a bit strange and unusual to you, please take a few minutes to read this post.

Ok, so maybe I am not the brightest bulb on the tree. At least I am on the tree.

I believe that qualifies as "snarky". :)

**snickers, knowing better than to call 'bullshit' since AntiM is venting on some dumbass who actually believes in 'crystal power" **

Only crystals I know of that have "power" are those that are piezoelectric or pyroelectric. Piezoelectric crystals respond to slight changes in pressure, and are good to pick up AM radio. (ex. quartz) Pyroelectric crystals respond to heat, and produce an electric charge when heated (ex. tourmaline)

Heat a tourmaline crystal with a Bunsen burner, and you might get just enough juice to fry an ant.....one of these 'rainy day science projects' that end up wasting more propane fuel than anything else.
