    Don't ask without first researching? Well....I don't remember what it was called! God now I feel STUPID! Forget this, I'll find a different forum. One that doesn't presume to imply that without the proper research, I shouldn't bother with my apparently stupid question. Hello reefcentral!

    wow i wish you would reconsider leaving 3 reef for reefcentral

    C'monnnnnnnn;). Let's keep "reefcentral" out of this. What's the deep point behind this thread "geek"? Does it really matter that much? Are you so bothered by "dumb questions" and people "dumber than you" answering them(wrong/right/indifferent/speculative/read/experienced/referrenced)? I to get tired of seeing the same "what are these white things on my glass" questions. I remember when I didn't know what an isopod was, do you? Let's shut this place down for scientific people/questions only. "I don't think so". I've done my part here and will continue to do so. With wrong ID's, right ID's, good advice, bad advice,shared experience, referrenced information,good pics, bad pics, no pics and I've paid money out of my pocket to have fun here. I'll have to admit that you do come off very arrogant(in more posts than 2,3 and, 4). I care about all the work that is put into this place by all the top dogs and cats;). Maybe Matt should charge money to be here to keep the stupid questions to a minimum. In short, I'm a leader also. It takes a good leader to carry followers. "I'll carry". "C'mon in the waters fine". The door is open "C'mon inside". I consider myself a respectable 3reefer and will carry myself that way. I considered you a respectable 3reefer. Maybe you should put yourself back in your "old shoes" and help a friend rather than make them feel uncomfortable about asking a question or answering one;).

    Well putting all flogging/flaming aside... The point of this thread was to tell EVERYBODY to do a little search for their answer before they go asking a question....

    No flogging/flaming coming from me. Just observation.
    I agree 100%. "Do work". Not all of us are fearless leaders. I happen to have a strong opinion and it was stated. "I'll carry"

    Here's some arrogance for yall...

    I tell ya what Casey, you can continue "leading or misleading" or whatever you wanna call it. I will continue "cutting the trail" for you to guide them on. Cause thats all you're really doing.


    "Those that can do, do... Those that can't, Teach."

    Brandon... Lay off the "Fool -Aid"!!! (iggy *click*)

    Its nice to know I have a fan club!

    WOW, that last post might have been a little over the top. Anyway, Just as geek doesn't have to read all of our repeated questions, you guys don't have to read his repeated rants. I think you posted this same rant about research a few months back Brian and got similar response. (but I will use the search option to find out.) Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    So, now that everyone has established their opinion on Brian, which was not what this was all about. Whether you like him, or you think he is an arrogant *******, is really irrelivant. There may come a time when you have a critter in your tank and have looked through the stickies, googled, and viewed countless pics. When you can't find anything that you think matches, Brian has probably seen it before and can (and will) help you out.

    If you are having surgury, do you want the doc with the best bed-side mannor, or the arragont SOB that's the best surgeon? So, my point is whether to like him or you think he is a total waste of flesh, he is a knowledgable guy and smart enough to figure out that by pissing off half the forum and starting a 8 page contraversy, He will accomplish his goal and most of the newbs that have joined since his last rant will find the seach function!

    Umm OK everyone is going to have to chill out or this thread will be closed.

    BTW everyone has the ability to use coloured text.
