Was: Apprentice questions
And on a general note, if one asks a question and that person takes the time to craft a response, just don't simply disappear with out even a thank you. There is absolutely nothing more rude and it kinda shuts the door for me.
Reading this post from Hans Meevis, someone who I think of as one of
the people on the forum who is most generous with their knowledge,
made me think about Orchid etiquette. I mean, we would all really
hate to have him give up on the forum, right? I wonder if there are
some simple, basic rules that would help people communicate better
and so enrich Orchid?
Personally, I am a very easy going person who finds humor in nearly
everything, very live and let live. Yet my friends an family often
tell me that my e-mails make me seem like I’m perpetually pissed off
(pardon my language). So I am in no position to tell anyone how to
behave on-line. My only thought on the etiquette thing is to only
write things on the forum and only behave in a way that you would if
you were face to face with the person. If that was the case I’m sure
we would all say thank you when someone we don’t really know tried
to help us out.
