I've entered multiple threads in the past two days where someone new asks a simple question and is met with rude responses from regulars.

Seriously, why the hate? It's more of a positive experience to browse 4chan sometimes than this board lately.

VGF, I am disappoint.

Because about 90% of them are Holli alts.

Maybe Gamefaqs.com just banned a bunch of users.

It's because the VGF is the worst.

Any thread in particular, I haven't noticed.

Some dude was asking about Dark Souls co-op and got ripped a new one. But the people who were ripping him were uninformed and came in thinking they knew everything about Dark Souls by saying you couldn't co-op, which is just not true.

Because of the high level of trolling by holli and the like, asking a stupid question is asking a stupid question... Plus this place has always been hostile to new posters, it takes work to get accepted by the natives, and if you can't survive the trial by trolling, then you can't handle the forum, separate the strong from the weak.

As others have said,

90% of them are alts, 5% of them are idiots, and 4.9% of them do not know how to communicate.

You replied to the wrong Mogwai. Haha.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 14, 2013 6:55:56 AM PST
But they weren't stupid questions. They were honest posts from new posters.

Heh, I hit reply before I saw his post. It worked though. ;)

Wanna join me in that small coffee shop around the corner from Starbucks for some elitist brew?

Neither of them are new posters. I think they just don't post often. I remember Aherns because I went to grammar school with a dude named Aherns.

That's the thing. Most of the new threads just get ignored or have rude replies. The new posters usually don't even check back.

I'm surprised the guy in the DS thread replied to me, although I'm glad he did.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 14, 2013 6:58:21 AM PST
Well, the same still kind of applies to people that don't post often.

But of course Sir Foxyhound.

I don't know if I'd call those "toxic" responses exactly. BillyZane was just making a joke about the "2012 game game" we have going (though I'm sure that person has no idea what he's talking about) and DDustiNN, um, is passionate about soloing Dark Souls, I guess.

I hear ya kimosabe.

Ehhh, most of the threads I see are rude individuals who do not know how to talk to others properly. Some of them, especially if they post Mon-Fri during work hours - get decent responses.

Too many people trying to be funny. It's sad to see a group that use to be fun to talk with now just recycles material that wasn't funny the first time.

Yeah I thought that was a pretty good joke by BZ.
