The anti stupid people thread !!!!!!!!
    #4696571 - 09/22/05 07:55 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

OK ...This is my problem.... I've been a member here for a while and this is my first post. I am so f'ning sick of hearing people ask how much and how long. If you don't have the the mental capacity to search for info and don't have the time or patience to grow shrooms....THEN DON"T F'N DO IT!!!!!!!! It makes me think that most of the newbs on here are the stupid teeny bopper group looking to sell shrooms and make the " quick buck." It makes me sick to think that our population consists of so many peolpe that are plan too stupid or lazy to look for this info on there own. I'm sorry ofr the rant but I am on my second grow and have never had to ask a question ...all the info is here ....just don't be a F'n idiot and look for it!!!!!! rant over

i feel your pain
i'm sure it gets irritating and there are some people who are over the line on the annoying scale
i haven't asked very many questions either and also think it is irritating
but
thinking back on how i learned everything that i know i realize that it is because i read those repetitive posts over and over. some people don't post. and some post a ton. but the sheer number of threads here is what makes the info so readily available.

you know what you know because at one time a "noob" asked a question and you read the answer
in a way he has added more to the community that you have as a lurker

people learn different ways
some can learn from reading old stuff and others insist on having their individual questions addressed directly
either way the info is available and that is a good thing

it takes all kinds...

Wow. I kinda agree with FooManShroom, that is a hell of a first post. But I don't know if I mean it in the same way. One thing that I've realized since I've started cultivating is that this is absolutely the best message board around on the subject. There are people here that have such a broad knowledge on the subject and are more that happy to share that knowledge with anyone who asks. Sure, it's in everyones best interest to do some research, and that most questions can be answered in the FAQs, but some cannot, and some need refinement or clarification on certain issues. For instance I am about to post a question, and even though I did some research first, I am still kinda confused on one point. Does that mean I'm an idiot noob? I should hope not. No more intelligent or stupid than yourself. But simply b/c you've got a couple grams of shrooms to keep you busy over the weekend you're some kind of genius fucking shroomaster? That's mighty arrogant of you. I know there are assholes out there that don't take the time to look for the answers themselves, but is it really worth it to make that kind of first impression? It kinda sucks that you let it bother you that much. A word of advice: Skip the noob posts, you'll live longer.

I agree completely, this latest influx of newbies comes off as extremely immature, and it's very irritating to say the least. I joined at 18 years old and researched every possible angle of whatever I was pursuing, and only posted questions in the forum as a very last resort. So age really isn't really a valid excuse here.

The majority of our new members don't want to work for it anymore, and it's sad. You can't change these people or their basic personalities though. If they're this lazy on the forums, imagine them in real life.

The shift in this forum over the years has been interesting to observe. Some of the most skilled, talented people around here hide in the background anymore because nobody wants to deal with the newbs and their questions. Can you blame them? The top cultivators in this hobby were the the ones involved in everyday general cultivation discussion along with everyone else. Such is not the case anymore. There's just too many damn people coming in that don't genuinely care to learn about the process of growing mushrooms.

Annoying, lazy newbs will always be just that, the question is do you want to bother helping them, or not?

they'll all come and go though, most won't stick around for the long haul though will they?
some of the questions are very annoying especially when there are like 2 or 3 others along the same lines within the past day. i just ignore most of them, some not.
hell i am still very much a noob when it comes to this hobby, who knows it all?

you are gonna be number one on the list of people gettin shit for stupid questions. you have just made yourself a target for that abuse. do your searchs well before asking.
as far as the teenyboppers and bippytwats wanting to make a buck in their parents house. its not gonna happen, they will figure it out the hard way and fade.
honestly, i started thinkin i was gonna make a buck fast. since then ive grown into a life of poverty riddled with a fascination for mycology. everything i think and do is related to fungus. i see it as a job. these kids dont have it in em, trust me on that one.


and im still gonna ask some dumb questions....

well let me think....you should probably be able to get your spores in the mail and have the mushrooms coming up in say 6-7 days if optimal conditions...if not lets say 3 days and an eighth usually goes for somewhere around 1,000,000,000 dollars  :smile:  why else do you think we do it. lol

I agree it's getting bad. People just don't wanna work for em even when it comes to looking up the info in the first place. Like it was said earlier they always fade away.

I remember my first grow. I got all my info from the Fanaticus website before it went under and even ordered my first spores from PF. I didn't even know about the Shroomery, if it was even around then. As outdated as the original tek seems, it still worked if you followed the directions.  It seems the youth coming up now generally have a very low attention span and refuse to take the time to read anything.

Then there is the issue of kids growing in their parents house without their parents knowledge. These kids post idiotic questions about how they can hide the sound of the air pump or the light coming from the closet. Then they get pissed off and don't understand when you lecture them on how stupid their actions are.

Definitely going south in the culti forums lately. :frown:

The two biggest reasons I've all but stopped answering questions are: I'll type out a detailed response, then an hour later a new thread pops up asking the exact same question. They won't even read the posts from that day before asking something. It seems there are too many kids who want people to take them by the hand and lead them all the way so there is no work on their part.

The other thing that torques my ass is that like it or not, I'll never give the lazy or easiest way to do something. This is a science and a hobby, so put out some effort and do it right. If I can do twice the work for an extra ten percent, it's worth it. I get sick and tired of giving sound advice, then having somebody on their first or second grow come in and say, "that's bullshit, I did such and such and it worked great! Only lost three jars out of ten" Well, news flash, if you lose three jars out of a hundred, you're doing something wrong. Figure it out and quit trying to take the easy way. Ok, I'm done ranting..lol

In the last few years heaps and heaps of good information has shown up.
Theres been alot of really good teachers in the past and even a few around today.
A few i wish would come back.

When i first started i would get in fight trying to understand exactly why things happend
and thry eliminating the useful from the junk info.
Imo theres alot of shit info out there and asking is the best way to find out wat the majority
of people like with the current situation.

Also when i started i was hardcore into it and loved posting.
never know they might know the answer but are really excited and use it to pass the
time.

I argued the piss outa cold shocking thinking it was a worthless step cause at the time
i thought it was.
Teanon finally jumped in and explained it very good and that page is now the cold
shock FAQ

so u never know when some stupid person will post and someting good will come out of it.

Perhaps there should be a noob forum. Some sort of AA for new cultivators.

"Hello, my name is Nilsen9491, and I'm a noob...."
"Hi Nilsen!" says the fellow noobs.

Maybe segregation isn't right, and perhaps it's even elitist, but that might help to some degree. Suppose you needed 200 posts to post in the same forum as Pornorob, maybe that would cut down on the frustration. A forum for the noobs, of the noobs, and by the noobs (a single tear falls). I for one can say though that I am very grateful for the advice given in this forum. I lurked around and read everything I could for months before posting, and even though my questions might have been stoopid and trivial to some, there are others, some with thousands of posts, that passed on their knowledge without bias, elitism, or a shitty attitude. Thanks folks.
