Rough version of proposed FAQ/FDQ(8 posts)

Rough version of proposed FAQ/FDQPODIUMBOUNDdotCA
Feb 25, 2003 1:09 PM
1) What is the FAQ/FDQ?
It is a list of questions that should not be asked on if you like not getting flamed.
2) What is getting flamed?
To be flamed means to be insulted, made fun of and/or generally tormented for either an act (asking a question/saying something) whether intentional or unintentional.
3) But who would flame me for something I did unintentionally???
These people are called trolls.
4) What is a troll?
A troll is someone that comes on the board and causes general $%^& disturbing. Some trolls are funny, some are irritating, some are both.
5) What is NM?
It means never %^&*ing mind. Just kidding. It means never mind which in general is used in posts where the reply can be done in the length of the topic. For example to answer the following... Poll: Do you use Shimano or Campy? - Shimano and/or Campy - to elaborate any further would cause an arguement leading to flames.
6) So which is better Shimano or Campy?
Just do not ask this question. Both at the upper end work and are relatively light. We'll leave it at that.
7) Is irregardless a word?
This is a topic of much debate. No matter what it is a mistake made by people in the english language and some people think if its not used it will go away. Irregardless, publishing houses in places as prestigious as New York treat it as a word.
8) Rollers or trainer?
Heres the deal. Rollers are great for aerobic stuff but begin to suffer when you need to do anaerboic stuff. Trainers are great for anaerobic stuff but get boring riding for aerobic stuff. Rollers take more skill but improve you skill on the road, a trainer does not.

Please feel free to add any more questions & answers.

This is the minor leagues compared to the pro audio forums I frequent... those guys are way more elitist (gotta mix on a Neve... ProTools only, etc...).

I'm also into audio as a hobby and have been to alot of these boards... how's this for a straight ahead comparison...steel v.s. alu or carbon = analog v.s. digital consoles.
