Stupid Posts in the newbie section..

I have noticed a lot of people posting stupid crap in the newbie section.

Don't get me wrong, I am not talking about people that are new asking simple questions, that's what the newbie forum is for. I am talking about posts like:

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...hreadid=243809

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...hreadid=240192

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...hreadid=240527
(this one did get taken care of...)

These are just a few threads in the first couple of pages in the newbie forum, and it seems nothing is being done about it.

I think in the newbie forum, there should be rules for proper etiquette, such as,
  • Using the search tool
  • Post in the proper forum
  • Flaming (What it is, why not to do it)
  • Jumping in on threads

These would help eliminate problems such as:

2 Threads with the Title "Cocker vs. Imp" within 1 day of each other.

Gun A vs. Gun B threads

And all around clutter...

Thanks

PS: Maybe have a "Suspended" group for people that post stuff like what I listed above. Maybe hand out 1 week suspensions instead of flat out bans?

most have been taken care of. the fine line comes down to determining if the post a genuine or bull plop. most are crap but unless the thread gets out of hand we cant do much but let it die on its own
