    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 dickhead 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! :)
