iPod, Shuffle, Mac Mini... these products and their take-up by switchers are going to bring a lot of new members to this forum over the next 12 months. Some of them will be repetitive and annoying, but most of them will have genuine concerns or valid points to make. Like everybody here, I also get annoyed with the umpteenth question about the release date of G5 powerbooks, Tiger, and over-inflated expectations of rumoured products. But you will never find me calling someone 'a dumb noob'... Let's try and be a little more patient and less condescending it doesn't reflect well on this forum and the Mac community if people take a overly harsh and critical approach to their responses, particularly if they're bordering on the personal. My 2nd or 3rd post on this forum was met with the unnecessary response that I was 'stupid' for daring to ask a simple question. Incidentally, that question was never answered... I was particularly struck by this recent post and the ensuing dialogue about the attitude of some MR forum members. So hey... let's go easy out there.
