I can't count the times I've seen a dozen or more people post the same response to a new members common question that has been answered before. They immediately attack and ridicule them for not using the search feature (which, by the way, isn't very good), or something similar.
That's just one example, there are many, many more, but what kills me the most is the double standard, one for the cliche, and one for everybody else.
This forum is about the best I have found on our topic, the people here are cordial to each other and helpful, you can't ask for much more than that.
I couldn't agree more. I never in my life saw a bigger group of ego type people. I got flamed on almost every post asking for help. One idiot from TX sent me 9 emails telling me what a fool I was and how I should go back to school and if my mama was retarded for asking if I can run the fridge on 110 going down the road without the gen on using the inverter. I run a guitar forum and that would never happen there. RV.net is a total waste of time. IMHO.

iRV2 is my preferred site . . .

that being said, let's be honest here . . . there was some serious drama here a few months back between a moderator & management (that I probably don't know all the details about) that almost made me back away . . . all I can say is that I'm happy we didn't lose a valuable contributor.

I don't visit RV.net all that often but I follow a thread over there titled "3000W Chinese Gensets Info" that has been extremely helpful. When I posted my "newbie" questions, I was answered quickly and everyone has been great. That thread is over 6 years long and packed with info that has saved me time, money and probably from hurting myself!

Thats an excellent point Ken.....that particular Topic(Champion Generators/Chinese Generators) is not only informative but it gets pretty techincal too. There is a wealth of knowledge from those who actually test and retest those Gen's. As I said, you can "rag" on RV.net all day long but in the end there is Good and Bad on all Forums. To each his own!

I understand how you feel. It happens all over the net. It is okay to provide a dissenting point of view. Check THIS out to see some bizarre stuff I went through right here. But it's all about spreading information that we learn from personal experience. We all decide who to believe and who we agree with. People can spout nonscence or present a different point of view.

I certainly won't be renting any kayaks from that guy based on your experience. On behalf of everybody who read your post; thank you for the valuable information. Keep your chin up!

It's just the nature of forums to have dissenting views.

Here, members are welcome to post opinions, facts and opinions believed to be facts. Everyone is entitled to their thoughts as long as it's done in a collegial manner.

It's OK to disagree, but not be disagreeable.

Well, you guys are doing a fine job here. As an admin of another forum I know what it takes to keep the peace and keep the board going and informative. I have always welcomed different points of view but not negative nasty posts. That will ruin a board in no time. Good job!

I think the most important thing for some people to remember is that the person you run off the board with your nasty comments and snarkiness may be the person who has the correct answer when it's your turn to need help and/or information. Just something to think about before you start typing.

Quite a few of the same people may be on both sites, not everyone uses the same nicks. Sometimes the same person uses several especially in the cases of those that have nothing good to say. Both sites have a fraction of dissenters or trolls that post to incite, it's a sad part of the internet we just have to deal with. The key is to just ignore them. They thrive on controversy. The forums give them the canvas to act out.

Ignore buttons are wonderful things
