    Threads on the main page

    I dont know about everyone else but im tired of seeing posts on the main page with 20 plus replies to it. I dont have a problem with those threads its just that its tiring to see them there for so long. If it takes more than a couple days to answer then i doubt it gets answered anytime soon.
    <chsh> I've read more interesting technical discussion on the wall of a public bathroom than I have at AO at times

    I disagree. A forum is a place for discussions. Why would you want to cut down on the core point for a forum. If its tool long for you, then dont read it or jump directly to the last post. Discussions can get long, thats what its all about.

    Cheers.

    I agree with instronics. There can also be a more understanding answer that was never said. Just an opinion

    You, I'm kinda of tired of people making redundant suggestions. I am kind of tired of people who half ass read a thread, then post things that we're already discussed in the original post. On top of that they don't even add any content at all. I am kinda tired of people like you who keeping using that title like newbie for an example, as a form of disrespect. I truely believe you have no idea.

    BTW i dont mean newbie as a disrespect : a newbie is human being who is willing to learn about computers , security , exploits , and everything else ..... i would rather be called a NEWBIE than a HACKER ....

    I'd rather be known as dopeydadwarf, than have any title at all associated with my reputation. Unfortunatley people who keep sterotypes alive need labels as a support system. Otherwise they haven't a good leg to stand on.

    Amusing how the guilty always point fingers.
