Well you replied on a 2008 thread (actually not sure why, I'd say he's all fixed up now)
Yep, I saw it in the "Similar Topics" section and wanted to correct something that was posted. Just because a thread isn't new doesn't mean that it doesn't get looked at when people are searching (through the site or through a search engine).
You replied to a "Hello" Titled laptop password thread, this should have just been
mentioned to the member to look at the already current (for a year now) thread
Indeed I did. And yes, generally it's easier to tell them to look at a sticky, but my answer was still valid nonetheless. And they would have had to look through a 10+ page thread to find their answer, especially for toshiba. Besides, you didn't delete that thread because of me, you deleted it because the creator didn't read the sticky, although I would argue that it maybe shouldn't have been deleted, and it's easier to leave it be than to have him wonder where his thread is and have to answer again...
You replied saying entering bios was as simple as reading the post screen (which it wasn't, (as stated 1 post before yours)
No...I said that generally a lot of times
you can find how to enter the bios by looking at the post screen. But I agree, I didn't actually read this thread all the way through until the end
When I see a member post many posts in a row (yours 22 posts on 14 threads in an hour) I check to see if they are correct, in my view of course
I was at work and had nothing to do, so I figured I'd browse here a bit. It's one thing to have 22 posts and be spamming the threads with useless information, but when most posts address issues and answer questions, then there's nothing wrong with posting. Of course, I could always just not answer any questions at all, but I figured I'd try to be somewhat....umm...helpful? What's the point of a forum when you want people to NOT post constructive input? I mean, I suppose you could try answering every thread by yourself, but then you might be at 100 posts in an hour, and then would have to review your own posts to see if they are correct
You seem to be generalizing that because I didn't read this thread that my posts are not constructive, which almost all of them are... Hey, I'd say that posts in 12/14 threads being useful is a decent percentage, don't you think? And most of the repeated posts in the same threads have come in response to your comments
