Last but not least … you have a tone of energy built up in you, and I don’t mean to offend you but I’m guessing you are under 20 years of age. Start swimming, jogging, do something constructive beside the computer in your free time! That should make you relax.
hes 16 guys give him a little break we were all young dumb and full of ourselves at some point in our life (some people still are)

I do agree, but he isn’t dumb at all! He’s actually quite smart if you ask me. The problem lies in the attitude. When I was 16, there was usually someone my age now, that would go ” Dude, shut up, you’re not thinking straight! Why do that…. and not do this? ... Why that…. Why not this? “ And that tends to help people grow up and see life from another perspective. Social interaction ( I’m not talking about damn Facebook! )

The problem is, internet… no social communication. I can be as bad as I want in front of my monitor… what’s the worst that can happen? Caps lock me to death? That’s why I’m stressing out and trying from the bottom of my heart to tell him to relax and stop taking stuff so seriously! It’s not worth the effort!

I wasn’t referring dumb as in intelligent level ;-) , I know he’s very talented and a smart kid who if would take a step back and take a breath every once and a while he’d do well, told him it many times

Landon… One last thing I’d like to add, then I’m stepping out of this conversation. If you feel offended by anything I said before, I am truly sorry, that was not my intention, but put things in this perspective.

If people from hundreds or thousands of miles away from you are telling you these things, it’s only for the best. We have nothing to gain if we criticize you, nothing to loose, we’re just trying to tell you to chill! :)Don’t take it personally mate, you are that lamp you were previously talking about. And the dust is the anger, negative attitude, and insults you portray in you comments. Take those away and you’re one shiny lamp my friend! :P

One thing I’ve learned (at least in my life) is that no matter what the age you always feel wiser than you actually are :D.

Of course, that’s natural. You get smarter and smarter every day, you can only be realistic about the past, the present is clouded with pride.

On topic: One thing I think we should avoid is criticizing mods. Many of them are just volunteers trying to make the forums a better place. So as a “forum consumer” I appreciate the work they do to help maintain a healthy community.

Okay guys, I’m going to lock this thread. It’s off topic and not going anywhere constructive. Let’s try to remember the forum rules.
