So, I've bit my tongue for a long while on this, since I joined the site pretty much but I'm just tired of seeing it now and something needs to be said. I see so many threads on this forum where people ask for help/advice/whatever, and all they get is unsolicited holier-than-thou rhetoric from the Macrumors moral police. I see threads where people lose their computer hard drive and need to transfer their purchased songs back from their iPod to their new computer, and the moral police jump in and tell them what they are doing is so illegal and immoral and that it's the worst thing on the planet to make a copy of their own damn songs they purchased legally to put them back on their hard drive after losing everything. Nobody asked for this holier-than-thouism, and more importantly, nobody cares. I don't think anyone's losing sleep over copying back their own music and to suggest someone repurchase thousands of songs that they already purchased? Get real. To these moral police I always say, "Well and what do you think you're doing every time you load those purchased songs on your iPod? That's right, you're making a copy. Better find a way to transfer the song to your iPod without making a copy, and harp at Apple about it while you're on your soapbox." Silence is usually what ensues when they realize they've painted themselves into a corner. I see threads about the Amazon no sales tax deals that deteriorate inevitably into a bunch of (again, completely unsolicted/unwanted/nonconstructive) people talking about how people should voluntarily report the pittance of tax at the end of the year on their IRS forms and how they are model citizens above those who don't do so. Nobody asked for your morality input, and nobody gives a damn. I see other threads asking for advice about which car to buy, and there's always a twat or three telling them to ditch their car and be "green" and ride their bike. Nobody asked for that, it's not constructive, and most people don't care. People asking about what car to buy sure as hell don't want to hear some hipster come in their with their "green" applesac and tell them that they should ditch the car and sweat their ass off biking unreasonable distances to work. Keep it to yourself? I have a Camaro with open headers, you think I would really appreciate such an useless suggestion? I certainly know if I made a poll with several cars listed, I wouldn't like someone coming in telling me to live a clean, "green" lifestyle like them. I see other threads ranging from girls asking about getting waitress jobs for a paltry $2.14/hour + tips and see moral police harping on them for only reporting half of their tips and how they are getting so screwed in their six figure tax bracket by the poor waitress who doesn't report a few spare bucks. Well guess what? Again nobody asked for your input, and nobody cares. With your supposed pull by being such a model citizen, why not write your congressman a letter complaining about restructuring the business models in which tips are tracked and recorded? I'm just tired of it. I see countless unsolicited post after countless unsolicited post here by people who obviously have been fed with a silver spoon their whole lives and who obviously live in glass houses. I'm a model citizen to a "T" more or less but some of the stuff people here find to whine and complain about in other peoples' lives reeks of absolutely retarded and unnecessary. It makes the people who complain from their pedestal seem awfully pathetic, and ultra-square. Take a deep breath, go outside, and drink a beer. Worry about yourself. If people want moral advice, they will come to you. Otherwise help, or just keep your mouth shut. The holier-than-thou stance that a lot of people take here at every chance they can worry about how someone else lives their life is extremely unbecoming, and extremely deconstructive to the board, and many of us are sick of seeing it every time someone asks for help.
