    Full disclosure: A long time ago, I did have a streak of this. I was mainly cured one day when someone I really respected told me to "shut it."

    Sadly, there are many posters here with full-blown symptoms...

    Edit: really, the four-letter acronym for "shut it" isn't OK here?

    The sufferers are the ones who have to put up with people like that.

    I was at a beer tasting night recently and the host in the bar was after people's opinions during each sample. This ******** kept being the first to answer with responses that made him look educated in the ale world, but just ruined the atmosphere for everyone else. Was meant to be a discussion, and given how flavour preference is subjective, his need to answer every time with more drabble got on everyone's nerves.

    I guess we all do it at times, but there is some people who just can't control themselves. Nothing irritates me more than someone finishing my sentence when I'm answering a question.

    I hope I don't, because I've known some people who definitely do.

    Conundrum: if posting images were a bit easier, I'd have done that. However, if posting images were easier... chaos might break out.

    Posting images is actually pretty simple. You can upload directly from a weblink you know....

    Actually, no, I didn't know that, I'll revisit that...

    See? If you admit that you don't know everything, you can.... learn! :)
