Thumbs down Red really sucks

I've used Redflag for years, but I don't know what it is with that site that makes people such morons. I've been involved with many community sites for many years - helped maintain a few etc. I've been helpful and have and excellent reputation for honesty in delivering what I promise. My heatware and ebay have never had a single negative comment. But whenever you make a comment at that site, you'll be spammed or rudely commented on - it's the only site I've every encountered that has such a terrible following. I will never post in there again other then to sell or buy.

My first rant

It's also the only site I've ever used the IGNORE on ... number to at least 16 to this day.

Exactly why I've never used RFD forums for trying to sell/buy anything. Just doesn't seem like a friendly place from the posts I've read.

It was a pretty good community at one time, but now all the users have some foolish sense of entitlement and immediately scold and insult anyone whose post they don't feel is up to their standards. Same thing with Craigslist, really. I can't check any category without someone complaining yet not actually buying or selling anything.

Then there's HC......the only time some good rants start here is when someone either:
1. Introduces Politics as a Thread or
2. Supports thier decision to purchase an Nvidia Chipset MOBO

hahahahaha

pffft Nvida chipsets.

Any ways, i agree with Mark, RFD is just swarm with idiot who can't respect others who just want to share there knowledge with the rest of the crowd.

Even the hot deal section stinks in RFD, way too many false post, that might be the case that lead to all the bashing and small flames.
