I'm new here, I kind of understand where these AE posts are coming from.
I understand that you should read the newbie link first, many times so you don't miss something and ask a question that's been asked 1 million + times. I would find that irritating too if I'd been using the site for a long time.
What I don't understand is the unnecessary harshness used in several of the replies I read day in and day out. If you think the posters question is dumb, there is no need to be mean about it. I'm not saying baby people, but have a heart. If you don't like what they posted, why bother replying, unless of course if was offensive.
What if that person is having a really bad day and they missed something in the newbie link. What if they don't think the question is dumb. What if they are just really new to this site/ charting / TTC and don't really get it.
People view things differently and thats ok, I just really disagree with the way some people act on these boards.
That said, I haven't really had a bad experience yet, I've just read a lot of other peoples. Try not to take anything to heart on here.
