I take it everyone was a perfect 5* star poster from the day they signed up?
Maybe it's the first forum they've signed up to and haven't quite grasped it yet.
If the thread made is awful just don't post in it and let the mods deal with it! Is it that difficult?
That excuse is lame.
Yes, everyone was new to the concept of forums at some point, so we all had to learn how to navigate and so on, but, you can't honestly look at some of these threads and say that it's just someone who is new to the forum concept. It isn't difficult to take a look around and see how other threads look. It isn't difficult to read the rules/FAQS of the forum. It shouldn't really be hard to see that making a thread about a wrestler shaving his head is something that doesn't require a thread of it's own.
Even if the noob makes a stupid post as their first post, there will always be people to point it out, so, there is no excuse to continue being stupid afterwards. The people who continue to make dumb posts are just legit....dumb.
