    Is there anyone else out there that has had it with the "should I buy now posts?" I know I have. When you go to the "post new thread" page it clearly states "Are you asking a question? Try searching first. Answers to many questions can be easily found." Am I the only one that feels this way?

    If you don't like them, don't click them

    Whatever you are proposing won't stop the threads

    You could always direct them to the Buyer's Guide. That's what it's there for.

    I'd rather a petition to ban people complaining about threads of a nature they don't like.

    How can they be banned? There really isn't a realistic way to prevent them from being created. If it really bothers you press [​IMG] and report it, and let the mods make the final decision. :)

    You people are taking it a little too seriously. I'm just making a joke about how every single "should I buy now" post is exactly the same. I'm not seriously proposing a ban on them people...geez.

    Well you did use the word "petition" in your thread title. That sounds like a proposal to me. :p

    I love it when something serious turns out to be a joke. You posted with a certain level of seriousness and when it turned bad it was suddenly a joke. I find that hilarious.

    My bad...I'll be sure to throw in a smiley face next time so people don't take it so seriously lol. It literally took 2 minutes to get like 6 hateful replies over a joke. :D

    Banning seems extreme. Strongly frowning upon them whenever possible seems like a better approach.

    what a stupid thread. at least "should i buy now or wait till later" threads have a purpose, unlike this.

    EDIT: Apologies if anyone gets "offended". i happened to read this post right as i was receiving my daily overdose of internet stupidity and just had to say something. normally i'd do what most would and just ignore the thread.
