No Sense of humour

It does my head in when posting a tounge in cheek item and you get smart arse replys from some who think they are being smart with child like comments.
Those same half wits poke fun at others who post looking for help, yet treat the OP like an imbecile.
I detect those are new Alfa breed.

Not just people who are trying to overcome their irritation with people who can't be bothered to search if their issue has been covered before?

This 'once great forum' has indeed been greatly diminished of late. Perhaps folks need to be a little more tolerant and try to let things wash over them?

I'm pretty sure most technical questions have been answered before, the Alfa workshop manuals will cover most things. So what shall we do, have a library and not a forum?

Tongue in cheek is hard when typing, unless people know you well, easy to misinterpret.

Seconded. I'd add that sarcasm, to which we are all prone, is a risky tool on a forum, and when used repeatedly it can create an atmosphere which is rather off putting.

I avoided commenting on that for fear of being accused of being one of the people who post smartarse replys!

I do a search before posting a subject. I do double the standard of effort taken by some.

Is my help sarcastic or deserving of a talking too?

The chap seemed to buy a Giulietta whilst still needing convincing. Never a good start.

did i ever tell anyone that i invented the term "metrosexual" in chatrooms in the early nineties ?

my context involved recounting instances of having sex in metropolitan situations ...as in not waiting till you got home from work ... (fire escapes, buses, that sort of thing) ... as an alternative to homo/hetero/bi/uni... some yank stole it and turned it into a gay bar with pale pink striped shirts and closely cropped hipster beards and it lost all its meaning
true story

I'm a smartarse who uses radio frequently. "Over & out" is contradictory.

"Over" invites the other party to reply, "out" means that the conversation is terminated. . . make up your mind what you want!
