Shamelessly stolen from Sammy:Here's a link to the PEELer's FAQ.
It covers a lot of the 'do's and 'do not's of this board. Things like double-posting and opening up pointless, discussionless threads that just get their asses spammed off (such as "Hi! I'm new" ) are big no-nos. The reason is that PEEL is a huge, huge message board for an independantly-run service. What other boards this large do you know of that haven't got some sort of specific financial backing behind them (from eing part of a company, or through advertising, etc)? Not many, i'd bet. [-mArc-] does an incredible job of keeping this board afloat, what with the extensive costs and all. So, cutting down on the amount of spam (Note: the PEEL definition of Spam) helps keep the stressload light, and stops us from heading towards another crash. It's nothing personal.
Thank You.This public broadcast brought to you by Abdominors, the cereal that stays crunchy, even in you!
I actually find that I get over it as soon as I hit that "Close thread" link thingy at the bottom of the page.
