Manners

Ok it may just be an age thing, or maybe be a rib thing as it's not something I see so much of on fishing forums. For me if I was to ask info on something I consider it just a natural response to thank those who take time to respond with info and even links etc. Do others consider it manners to thank these days?

Without a doubt. If I ask for help on here I always thank the guys that took the time to come back with their comments and help.

I think its an age / sign of the times thing. In the age of Digital Assistants (Siri, Alexa,Google etc) thereís no need for Please & Thank You, & that filters down. My Missusí school has a policy where if you donít say please, you donít get. Itís done wonders for my manners

You've seen the same thing I have then. I see two main categories of wretchedness. One is the low post count member who has joined the forum to ask a specific question, never thank and sometimes don't even log in again. They're treating RIBnet like Google, as Dave says. Two is the regular poster who asks a question and then argues with and insults the people who have taken the time to reply. You know who you are!!

upbringing & respect is the problem IMO sadly getting worse, but the seeds you sow today for the harvest tomorrow is of your own doing.

Just another example of the systematic breakdown in (prodominatly Western) society" ...All important Language/communication skills ...Manners and Respect for individuals AND institutions.

It will for sure be "re-booted" at some point...but what form and at what price!..AND in which Languages!...remains to be seen
Sincere Thanks for your post!

Thanks for the reply's

I must admit I wouldn't of been surprised to of seen a comment saying if you don't like it "on your bike "

I must admit it makes me feel less like contributing but the above comments have helped show it's not something I'm alone on.

The annoyance for me are the posters that ask a question & then don't let us know if they've fixed the problem.

Not unique to ribnet – but a common stance that many people take which makes me chuckle, if you own one, been on your friends one, saw a picture of one in a mag, its the BEST, no matter what anyone says different – however weak the owners argument, oblivious of facts, figures and advice from people that KNOW – screw logic, theirs is categorically, emphatically the BEST!


Prime example - the chap a week or so ago on Rib.net trying to defend a particular AWB and how good they were in seas ( he’d been on his mates one so it MUST be the best boat in the world! lol ), not interested in any reason or experience from other forum members, why would he, his example must be superior to anything else on the water, just because he’d sat on one……………………………...lol

Yep, I agree on both counts.
One recently left the regulars discussing the merits of certain brands, whilst the OP disappeared in to the ether without as much as a kiss my @rse.
