The thing is, if they looked around, they might learn something, and want to be part of the community.

I used to be a member on Toyota Nation, but every 6 months or so they'd change my password (don't know if the spammers were busy or what?), and I couldn't log on to the site. It got very frustrating having to use 4 of my 5 attempts just to log on, and or be denied. It finally got to the point where I don't post over there. I'll still lurk, but just not post.
Good point. I guess I was taking the defensive for them. When I came here to the forum it was because I saw all these badarse accords and I wanted to be a part of that, thats why I joined. Maybe thats me being optimistic. I think I tried to ask for help and sketch and redryder said something to the effect of "how about posting on some threads first before asking for help". I think I posted on some and went right back and said ok, I did, can you answer my question?

They were right in doing that because that wasn't cool at all. Fast forward to now and I have a "decent" thread and reply count. I try to help everyone as much as I can lol. I felt like a douche after I did that. I know however, other people dont think the same way and just want help right away. I guess my defense was flawed lol. Most people dont care about forums anymore. Everything is instagram and facebook anymore.

Probably more along the lines of "I dont want to pay a mechanic and I want someone on this forum to answer my question so I can move on with my life lol.
