Not to worry, the Net Nanny Nabobs of Negativity will find some other "I'm just so offended" situation to get outraged over before long. So long as there are children in campgrounds, dogs in campgrounds, campgrounds, roads, parking lots, another camper within 751' the potential for endless threads crying about "the proper behavior" is always possible.
And what a more welcoming forum could you find to attempt "nice" solutions for people simply being people?
Actually these things are fun and do seem to run in an orbit of regularity--especially during the down times.
Now if someone could give me a direct and immediate answer about the proper etiquette concerning parking overnight at WalMart during the last week before Christmas, I would be ever so grateful. Bear in mind that I WANT TO PARK THERE TO SAVE MONEY so "you shouldn't do it" is unacceptable and will hurt my feeling a lot if you say it to me!
"etiquitte at Walmart" thats one of those trick questions. Right? lol

In my job we have a searchable database of 10's of thousand of tips and solutions to technical problems and me biggest coaching job is trying to get people to use the search engine and not re-invent the wheel with every situation the individual thinks must be a first time event.
I find quite often people don't know how to quickly try various search terms when looks for web info however sometimes it's just laziness why people won't use search engines.
I can relate to this in the workplace. Back when I was beholden to the billable hour, I was driven crazy by newer employees who would come to my office and treat me like I was their own personal Google. I started with "Try looking here..." and with the stubborn cases just "Have you tried looking this up?".
But this is a different enviroment. In fact I sometimes think of this forum as a big campground and each thread is a different campfire discussion. It's fun to wander from campfire to campfire and decide where to pull up a chair and sit down and warm my toes

I'm a retired IT engineer. I know how to do a "search" function, both complex Boolean and Linear plain English. The problem arises when you are looking for a simple, up-to-date answer to a simple, forward question and you don't care to wade through 1,000 posts that may or may not have an answer that bears directly to your dilemma. When someone needs a simple, up-to-date answer to a simple question, why then is it greeted with: "Do A Search!"? A concise answer, or no answer at all, thank-you, with an "If you need more information or other ideas, you can use the Search function..." would be ever so much more civilized and conducive to the garnering of "new information" pertaining to a question that may have better answers than those posted 30 days ago and probably better than those answers of a year ago. Times change and along with it the answers evolve based on new products, ideas and and the dissemination of that information. The true purpose of "forum"...
Nicely stated. Forums are about the exchange of ideas and information. I feel that the Do a Search reply to be a bit rude.
