    A short video all about forum etiquette, with lashings of humour and 80s style retro graphics.

    This is good stuff that applies anywhere. Well worth a watch!

    EDIT

    The many different flame warriors make an excellent addition. See post 5 by regexorcist here. Fanboy & Lamer are just two of the many warriors described on that site and seem especially relevant to tech sites like this one... :laugh:

    Here's a great description of Newbie:

    Hey, you're welcome. :)

    The video said that a fanboy is a specialised kind of troll, which I was quite surprised about. In my book, just because someone is a bit fanatical about something doesn't automatically make them a troll, just dead keen on their favourite product or brand.

    Oh and welcome to TPU! :toast:

    Bump in case someone hasn't seen this and wants to comment - the video is pretty funny!
