Boobs, not Noobs!

I know most of us StR vets are tired of some of the noobs that tend to not follow the preferred FanPosting protocol. We all probably wish we could replace the noobs with some boobs, which would make things much more enjoyable, probably even for StR's team mom, LPA. However, there's no magical button that can automatically turn a crappy post into something like this:

Believe me, I've tried. A lot.

That being said, what we can do is just ignore them. Obviously its more fun for some of us to post our opinions on these posts. Some of us want to give serious English lessons. Some of us just, such as myself, want to be assholes. It's not my fault it's one of my few redeeming qualities. But, I'm going to strongly recommend that we just ignore the trolling noobs. If it's a crappy FanPost that should've been a FanShot, flag it. If it should've been a comment somewhere else, flag it. If it's terrible atrocious garbage, flag it. Upon flagging one of these posts, scroll to the very top of the page and hit the button that says "home." It'll magically take you someplace that'll return you to sanity and let you enjoy the wonderful writing of some of the better contributors.

This may be hard to believe, but in the past I spent several years working as a counselor in group homes for both troubled teens and adults with mental health issues. One thing I learned is that when someone is doing something that is persistently annoying like yelling as loud as they can or making annoying sounds to get attention, or writing 8,000 word posts with Pat Benatar songs for that matter, it's best to just ignore them. Eventually they just stop because they recognize that what they're doing isn't working.

So, please join me in ignoring crappy posts. I know it'll be hard for some of us, but I figure that if I, as the biggest asshole here, lead the way and set an example, so can everyone else. And if it becomes really hard just come back to this post and enjoy:
