A case study in a bad forum post.

Notice no punctuation between the statement of the problem and the main question (to which the answer is likely "no" seeing as how fansub groups don't always release their subtitle scripts). If not for careful attention, one might miss his question, or misinterpret his post altogether.

Witness how the poster requests only a YES or a NO in response, requesting that fellow users answer in a way that simply clutters the forum, while requesting that users send the message directly to him, a somewhat selfish act that defeats the entire purpose of the forum.

Additionally his topic, "subtitle," a vague title that leads the forum reader to wonder "what about subtitles?" Maybe he wishes to pique the reader's interest. Maybe that's all he can think of (one might say he has a memory capacity of four bytes) and is unable to ponder beyond that. A more specific topic, such as "where could I find subtitle scripts" with a more cohesive post, would greatly enhance the forum experience of both him, and others.

I hope this has been an educational, and insightful journey into the pitfalls of n00bisms, and encourage all posters to read, and heed the errors of this poster so as not to commit them themselves.

Assignment is pages 2-21, all problems. Due tomorrow.

Indeed, repeated 3 times this thread is, indeed, highly educational!

The http://forums.animesuki.com/images/icons/icon14.gif is quite misleading as well; as it infers to a positive post about the topic in question. Perhaps replacing it with http://forums.animesuki.com/images/icons/icon5.gif would have lead to less confusion about the content of the post, but then the post itself is confusing enough as it is.

I forget who the quote is from but I think it runs something like "What I tell you three times is true".

With that in mind, I thank Professor microlith for today's lesson, and will close the thread.

I could move it to an appropriate forum but I'll leave the exercise as to which forum is appropriate up to the original poster, snizzzel. Clearly some practice is needed in this area but no doubt the thread and the replies so far received should build some character.
