    news users NOT filling in their profile information.

    It seems there are many of the new users are not filling in or creating a profile.

    It makes it very difficult to determine if they are actual tech.... end user or not.

    My opinion is they shouldn't be able to post anything BUT in the Newbie forum until they do so.

    it also seems that when you point out their profile is lacking they get a case of the 'twisted panties' and then they start to go on a rant.

    Agree Phil. Unfortunately if it's NOT mandatory to fill in your profile when making registration...yes nobody cares. My own statistics is maybe only 1 out of 10 new registered members is tech(or close).
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    yup 10/1 odds agree with that number.. and the end users EXPECT everything for free and don't contemplate the ramifications to the tech for passing out proprietary stuff.

    Of course, even IF they fill it out, there is no guarantee it will be truthful. On the other hand, we'll catch them pretty quick if they lie on it.
    Started in the copier service business in the fall of 1988 and have worked at the same company since then, now the senior tech, since 2004.

    It has been that way for as long as I can remember.
