Every week we get a new member who posts some question that should be pretty easy to find if they tried the search function or even read some of the threads already recently posted. Their Avatar is generic and they may have posted 10 posts or less. Joined 3 days ago.
I know our search function is not the best but the responses in previously posted threads can be very useful. What happened to getting to know the culture before posting? It seems instant gratification is the order of the day. Why not get to know us first? What happened to good old fashioned lurking?
Maybe I'm just a crotchety old man.

This is why I have so few posts, I search and read.

Give the newbies some slack. They're trying to break the ice in a new forum with a question. Crotchety isn't a way to welcome someone.

The only reason I'm on a motorcycle forum is because I needed help figuring something out and began searching for an answer. Then I came across something similar where a bunch of dudes seemed to know what they were talking about so, I figured I would ask them. Hence my first post. Then through the answers you learn about the culture, end up hanging around, learning the site, and eventually you're plugged in. It's got to start somewhere.

I don't think the first time posters are being lazy, they're trying to figure out how to get their bike running or if something fell off. I know what it feels like to be down and wanting to get up and running as fast as you can. And not everybody has cash to throw at a dealer or mechanic.

So yes, maybe you are a cranky old man. But I've seen enough of your posts to know I don't mind you being an old cranky man. :makeout:

Good feedback. I'll try to be less cranky. Did I ever tell you I used to walk five miles to school every day in the snow? (Which was particularly tough growing up in San Diego.)
