Default Re: Being Genuine.

I try to avoid those types of posts. They seem very spam-ish and they don't really help the person at all. It's kind of rude since it gives the person the idea you are only doing that for posts and not because you care.

Rep for you! (:

I agree that it sometimes feels repetetive when you are welcoming new members, but if you read the person's post carefully, there is always something unique that brought them to post in the first place. You can comment on that issue that the new member posted about, relate it to an experience you have already had, wish them luck, and then direct them to the information they will need as a new member. It does make people feel good when others recognize that they are new and make the effort to say hello and to offer good advice.

Exactly. The ten letter rule was put into place to help us to make better posts. If we act violent against it, what does that say about how far we want to go on WI?

Default Re: Being Genuine.

Another thing is, don't make it like don't post something that you don't mean!

If you don't like the name or pet, or don't want to have to spell out "Congratulations" then don't post at all.

I got alot of "Plain, oh they don't mean that at all, I can tell" posts on my threads.

Yeah. That's very rude. I'm sorry, I could go on forever. Rudeness bothers me a lot.

Thank you. I appreciate that, you have no idea. I've been seeing this for months, and finally, tonight I was set over the edge.
