  • A Minor Request

    I understand google is a good tool for looking up questions. I acknowledge the fact users on this board ask questions that could easily or with patience could be found with a search engine like google. However this is a message board. If noone ask's questions there are a few things that happen: 1, the forum slowly becomes lame. 2, the learning experience is only half-assed... Learning something is half the experience, teaching others is the other half//it also helps you keep a fresh mind on topics when engaging in teaching others...

    My only request to everyone here, (i'm not implying that some fail in this.) is to accept the questions.

    And it's your choice to reply to other's questions... If you don't want to then just simply don't. You don't have to down their choices or exclude there attempts... If there is something wrong let the moderators deal with it.

    Agree//Disagree? Why?

    Boohoo cry me a river..

    I think you are refering to the post in which I told you to google something. Maybe if you weren't so lazy it wouldn't have been an issue.

    Furthermore, when a question is intelligent and not one that could be easily found searching on google then many on this board do answer. However, this is not the place for hand holding. If you want someone to wipe your ass, go ask your mom, but don't come here.

    The other big issuance is that this is a forum pertaining to defcon and hacking. Hacking isn't about being able to go and find all the answers in one place. Often it isn't even about people telling you the answers at all. It's about going out and finding the answers on your own and then IF you are really stuck going and having someone POINT you in the right direction.

      As a general rule, when I see a question posted that I think is very likely to be answered with a cursory search, I'll google it myself. If the answer is not displayed within the first 5-10 results (and trust me, it's almost always the FIRST result) then I'll usually answer the question if I know it and not tell them to google. On the other hand, if it IS on the first page of the Google results I get pissed. I find it insulting for people to come on here and waste more time typing their question that it takes to search on their own.

      I am not a secretary or a research assistant IRL and I sure as shit am not going to be one on here.

      Or alternately, if someone came on here and stated that they were trying to find information on a topic but were unable to craft a search string that brought them the results they were looking for and asked not for the answer, but for suggestions on WHAT to search for...I don't think anyone would get pissy with them...well...unless they tried this

      "I am looking for information on a program called Nessus. What should I search for?" Then i'd have the ass.

        I would love to see this board full of questions and answers and as a source of knowledge unequaled by anything anywhere else. But to get there we will need to have A) questions that cannot be found by simple methods, and B)all the questions will need to be *different*.

        Having a discussion board with the same lame question in 40 different threads is not a forward moving act. It's a step above spam.

        AOL had a great newbie forum, so does mIRC. Folks may wish to crawl before they can walk, and walk before they can run. Coming to these high speed boards while you are still learning the differences between a CD and a DVD do no one any good. They water down these boards and both you and the current members will lose interest, and that is what kills the boards.

        So a request to all newbiews, script kiddies, lamers and wannabees. Please check out AOL, Google, mIRC, and your help files on your PC. Join beginner groups. Take a computer class. Then when you are high speed and l33t, come on back, you'll understand this board better, learn more, and be able to contribute more. We'll still be here. ;)

          Oh so very true! I started with computing.net and when they started to delete some of my post (they don't like anything to do with kismet) I felt that was the time to start over here, and I still reserve my questions to google/internet/BOOKS/search button in top right corner before posting.

            well then...

            hmm... I didn't exspect this thread to turn out like it did. however i do side with 0versite in the fact it can get annoying...
            I wasn't bitching about your lame reply to my thread highwizard to tell me to google something, cause you probably didn't even read why i wasn't able to google something, so stop acting like a flammer and take your own damn advise.

            Anyways... i tried to establish more then i did with this thread. However, even tho from the replies i see, i disagree yet understand.

            I just don't see it as wasted time when someone ask's a computer question that may seem easy to me. Cause everyone has their weakpoints.

            I mean my only reason behind even starting this thread is to promote motivation to help others. I'm not trying to "complain" like it may seem about how anyone is approaching other's questions. It's just a habbit in my eyes to tell a certain individual "seach google."

              Boo Hoo Number 2!

              1) I didn't find my reply lame in the least. However, I did find your post lame as well as this one. I guess the problem is either A) You don't know how to form a search string properly or B) You were too lazy to go beyond Page 1.

              2) The word is Advice

              3) Flammer? Are you calling me gay or something?

              So there is this asshole who thinks he's badass cause he can boot people from yahoo. I've done searches for programs but they all have lame layouts... Are there any programs///sites that are really good for keeping these lame booters from effecting your yahoo client?
              I believe I understood this quite well. And gave a proper response.

              If this were a general computer forum I would actually agree (imagine that!). However, it is not a general computing forum. I refer you back to my original post in this thread as to an explanation of what I believe it to be.

              I mean my only reason behind even starting this thread is to promote motivation to help others. I'm not trying to "complain" like it may seem about how anyone is approaching other's questions. It's just a habbit in my eyes to tell a certain individual "seach google."
              Motivation to help others? If people aren't self-motivated then hacking is definitely something that should steer away from.

              No, you're not complaining. You're bitching or being a bitch, whichever you chose. See, I'm an asshole and I run across a lot of bitches in my life, so I have a nack for picking them out.


              Better people then you have flamed me on here and in person. Quit while you're ahead and save yourself some time.

                This is the last time i'm going to reply to you highwizard... This thread isn't any lesser then any other. I posted it in "Community Talk" not "Hackers Here" or some bs your failing to see, and that is all i have to say to you. Your taking the context of this thread in the wrong manner.
                And again STOP BEING A FLAMMER.

                  Thanks for increase the post count.... Defcon is billed as "Welcome to the largest underground hacking event in the world." these are the Defcon Forums, ergo, this forum would be about hacking!




                  And again STOP BEING A FLAMMER.

                  Why are you making fun of me because I'm gay?

                    If you're going to insult someone, at least spell "flamer" correctly.
                    You're either on my side or else you're in the way.

                      Perhaps he meant to type FLANNER, and was insulting your love of flan, the delicious Mexican flavor treat...

                        Ok --- that seriously did it for me. I'm tired of even trying with this thread. Highwizard... you know... whatever makes you feel your right go for it man, i'm not even going to try to counter anything your saying anymore, and no i don't give a shit about you being gay. And to godminusone if i wanted to be a professional typist i would goto college for that , stop power posting and write out something more intelligent then a sentence. Thats all i have to say to either one of you 2.

                        and as far as this thread goes, if any of you guys truely look down on me because i was out for more then the 'hacking' reputation, but more of a respectful one, then you seriously need to get a life.

                          I guess when you said "This is the last time i'm going to reply to you highwizard" that you actually meant "I'm going to reply to you after your next posting".

                          See.. Now you got it.. "HighWizard, you're right". That's all that you had to say in the beginning and you could have saved yourself some trouble.

                          As for the other comment: Who the fuck are you? You've been on this board for a 2 weeks and you think you're special? GodMinusOne is not only a goon and a friend of mine but has been posting for longer then you have been lurking. So sit down and shut up. *

                          and as far as this thread goes, if any of you guys truely look down on me because i was out for more then the 'hacking' reputation, but more of a respectful one, then you seriously need to get a life.
                          Alright, you need more coherent sentences. Maybe you should go to that college typing course... And before you tell someone they need to get a life maybe you shouldn't have a profile on facethejury.com .... LOSER!


                          *I'm a minority and I make a quota, that's what makes me special ;)

                            Don't be a moron. This is a hacker site. MOST of the people here understand what that means. You obviously have no clue what a hacker is...so I ask, What the fuck are you doing here?

                            HighWiz is right. If this was the "Learn to use your Dell" forums then it would be one thing, but it isn't. It is a hacker forum. If you aren't a hacker and don't have a hacker mentality then hit the fuckin' road and don't let the dictionary hit you on the way out.

                            Learn to spell and type correctly. Flammer...what the fuck is a flammer? When insulting people it is important to spell correctly. For instance, if I say "TheDorkJeff is a retord". I end up looking like a retard, whereas if I say "TheDorkJeff is a RETARD" my point has successfully been made and I am recognized for the hero that I truly am.


                            Eat hot death. (NOTE: I did not say eet hut debth, which would have made about as much sense as calling someone a flammer).
