I have posted a few times but after the snarky responses and a multitude of answers to questions I never asked. I have pretty much given up here. There are other forums out there that have people willing to respond with answers that actually pertain to my post. So that's where I go for help or information. Chuck

The information on the internet has expended vastly in the last 17 years. Many watch youtube videos to get their information. Sadly, many internet type forums are vanishing.

Well Chuckbear,
Let me save you a lot of time and possible curiosity.
Don't post a question of any technical or important knowledge on Farce Book.
You will get:
Lots of fast answers
60% wrong answers
5~10% actual correct answers that may be obtuse
30% answers that do not relate to the posted question
20% trying to make your question sound stupid

This is why the only thing I post on FB is RTM.

I believe that's "RTFM", Matt.

This forum has done little to improve itself in the past ten years. The snarky responses qnd the boiler plate comments are turn offs. We all know where most of the replies are headed before they get posted. "Honda is good", "Harbor Freight is bad", "Chinese tires are only good for stqrting fires", "Do a search, we have talked about this before". That, plus a couple of moderqators who think they are above reproach ensures less participation. I find brand specific forums a lot more friendly and usable. But that's just me.

That does not sound unique to FB. I have seen the exact same ratio of responses here.
Don't know what RTM or RTFM means so maybe you could fill in that blank. Thanks.

Well, Matt, your post is a perfect example of which I speak. I don't know what Farce Book is and doubt I would ever post there. Nor do I
remember asking anyone about posting on Farce Book, whatever that is. Chuck

Joe, this will probably get removed but if you see it quick enough, one is here and the other is here. Chuck
