Well some Senior Members, have been on this forum for years. Seems like they lack a real social life, hence the lower EQ.

This might just be their own means to a social experience.

I feel bad for newbies who do need help and are combatted with the senior citizen section on SF.

I rarely post but read this forum regularly. The community is not too unlike most other online forums, but the wealth of knowledge contributed here is pretty astounding. I feel like the best way for a novice to take this site in is simply dedicating a month or two to reading different threads daily, and sifting through the responses for the truly helpful posts that are bound to crop up. If you're new and come across as disrespectful, in my mind you deserve to get it thrown right back in your face.

I feel you should be more specific. Do you want him to consume feces first, and then decapitate himself immediately after, do you want him attempt to do both simultaneously? Perhaps, you want him to die as a result of consuming feces. You also did not indicate what sort of feces you would like him to consume. You should guide newer members a little bit better in carrying out your demands, it will make styleforum a much happier place.

The problem with having people illustrate lack of style and netiquette is not that it discourage new members, but it attract e-drama queens, attention wh*res and juvenile whiners.
In addition to that, the above trouble makers discourage quality members from participating in discussions.
Lastly, valuable information get buried under piles of shit posting.

I'd say the tone has gotten more negative over the years. I lurked for 3 plus years before posting. I never felt the need to. I read occasionally more as an avid fan of menswear. To see trends, etc... The flip side is that the same questions get asked so frequently that the site gets a little stale. The thing that I notice more is people not wanting to be open minded to their opinions. They have an idea set in stone of what is right or wrong and don't want to change. There is more grey areas than ever in mensfashion. Be it advice for an interview, how bankers dress, mixing a pattern with a print and what not.

Perhaps he means well :-/. He just has a few typographical errors. He meant to type "Eat, Sh-t, and Die." Kind of like Eat Pray and Love only more thoughtful.

In that case it's better to ignore the thread than make fun of the person asking the question. Newer members like myself will gladly provide help by sharing all the limited knowledge they've accumulated. I don't think there's too many threads asking silly questions right now; the forum is not polluted with them.

I been here just a few days, and I got no complaints.

Yah, there are webgeekz, so what's new? There's a very kewl irreverence, and a reasonable (or moreso) level of literacy.

We likes it,
