forum rules

This is my first and only forum. I joined 3 years ago and have been told and read some forum unspoken rules like.....Capitalize ( no using i instead of I ) punctuate, no oil questions,did you search first? dont mention the girl car or the Porsche with panties. But I would like to have some more recommendations of rules so I might keep from looking like a jackass as i often do. Did I mention IMS, Jake,Tyres or Tires

I'll probably get reamed a new one for this but here it goes. I never understood some of the abrupt rudeness harped upon the people who dare ask questions about oil, oil changes, what kind of tires, etc. If the question (asked just for information) annoys some so much then why not just not respond at all instead of placing a rude reply ? We all are not experts or mechanics. If someone asked me a question in my area of expertise I would try my best to answer them without judgement of any kind. Now dont get me wrong, 95% of the time this forum is excellent but I have witnessed some unwarranted rudeness as well. Just an observation.

Last month I was thinking about making a thread asking about what to do about (@+s.

I am really glad I did a search first. I finally just gave them a box.

Part of the issue is that there is no real answer for tires or oil. Everyone has their own opinion, and eventually it all turns to bikering, and with each new post that asks these questions, it adds more to the back catalog when someone actually does search of bickering and such.
