I can’t, and won’t, reply to all of the original thread. But I can, and will, reply to the part of new user
As one of those new users, yesterday marked my first 30 days since installing Daz. I have during this time never felt that I was treated rudely or ignored, much rather the other way around. I have asked some of the most stupid questions at times but the other members have been helpful and patient with answering those questions and therefor helped me learn more.
I have seen some hints at rudeness in some threads yes, but that has been equal new and old users to be honest. For example.. there have been those of the new users that has asked for help and when getting help has responded to it in a very rude and sometimes even aggressive way. And than there is those of the older users who sometimes act quite rude and so on. But as I see it this is the internet, and a forum, there will always be those that are rude and sometimes even aggressive.
Personally, I have seen and left several forums due to the amount of rudeness, aggressivity and plain trashtalk that went on there. I am one of those persons that Rarely frequent a forum unless basically forced too, at this date there is a total of 4 forums I frequent. Of those four, this forum is one and only because of the amount of nice and helpful people that are found here.
That is my experience and my opinions, I’m sure there is those that don’t agree with either of it *smiles* but that’s what makes us humans as well… that all of us are actually different people with different personalities Besides, we can all have a bad day once in a while too.. heaven knows I certainly do *laughs*
Edit - actually going to make one small edit. There is ONCE during this month that I felt that I was being patronized. Seeing that I myself was in a bad mood that day, and that it could simply have been something so easy as a misscommunication due to not being able to express a tone of voice I preferred to leave that discussion. That episode has not even crossed my mind since than, up until now.. and it actually took me some time to even remember it
