Recently I had a browse through quite a few threads and I noticed that most comments made by the smart people in here are quite arrogant with their comments/replies. I’m not whinging (okay a little bit), but this is living room right?
I just wanted to point this out because it seems a little unprofessional and I’m wondering why? It even makes me think twice or not to even bother posting a reply.
Reasons why I think this is so:
- Maybe, this forum doesn’t like opinions
- Smart ones don’t tend to like statements made by others which have slight mistakes ( includes me )
- Smart ones don’t tend to like explaining things to detail
I take the example in the Optical Dev Forum/PSX protection thread… instead of using words like ‘maybe…’ or ‘I think it is…’ or ‘most likely…’ to make a point people just want to say it is definitely that without showing any references or pictures.
I don’t want to start listing threads of these examples of arrogance because I’ll be hated here, but I bet I’m going to be flamed here anyway.
Isn’t that this forum is popular because of it’s members - people who post something. Personally I’d like to see more people post opinions - it’s more interesting.
I had a talk with some mathematician and he gave me a great lecture about famous people in history who were known for their arrogance in their work and that this is usual and not a bad thing sometimes.
Anyway you’d probably agree/disagree, I’d like to ask what those reasons are… flame away…
