I just wanted a closing rant on here before I bugger off for good. I think I don't have enough patience to spend this much time online.
I only joined LO because I was using it for tactics and occasional rules disputes and thought that I had better put my two cents in in lieu of using the 'service'.
Month after month of the same basic rules questions (by people who have clearly not read the rulebook), the same discussions that go nowhere and post after post which is horribly illegible have worn my patience (which was very little to begin with) thin.
I think they should pass a new law: no computers until you can read and write English (or a relevant language of your choice). Maybe it's just me, but I think a fundamental grasp of your native tongue is beneficial.
So the site itself is great as are the people running it, but 90% of the online population give me brain owwies.
I think it might be a good idea that you go.
There's no problem with people asking questions where there is an answer in the rulebook - they may not possess a photographic memory or a situation where they've need to know it.
What I find a bigger problem with the wargaming community are those who don't treat other people with respect because they're not as 'hard core' as others.
I agree with Angelsbard, its a shame you feel this way because LO is one of the better sites for its forum. Yes there are some loop arguments, and yes, newer members/WH players in general will keep asking n00by questions. Its something you just have to get used to and be mature enough to give help where its asked for and help those members become better members of the forum community.
Also, re: language, remember that not all members are native speakers, allow them a little leeway as it is difficult to write on specialised subjects in a non-native tongue (I certainly wasn't taught warhammer parlance in my GCSE German classes!).

I really hope that reading the rulebook does not determine you to be a 'hard core' gamer.
Also I don't know at which point you were referring to when you insinuated that I was direspectful to anyone here or in the wider gaming community.
*ArtificiallyEnhanced* - I clearly wasn't describing non-English speakers.
again, I said it is a good site and that it is my own lack of patience which has neccessitated my departure! (After I reply to any more feedback from this thread )
But, I don't know what patience has to do with it . . .
[cough]bard: "You should go because there's no problem. A big problem is disrespect."
artificial: "I agree. Lemon, you are not mature enough to help loopy noobs."[/cough]
Anyway, good luck, and have fun!
bye, sorry to see you unable to withstand the new players...

It is a shame that your personality traits do not facilitate for helping those perhaps not so quick-witted or knowledgeable as yourself. It is also a shame that you possess an ignorance to the whole concept of 'new players'. GW is infamous for publishing unclear rules with possible loopholes, and if you would like to argue this, please also explain the continuous FAQs and Erratas that appear edition after edition.
Perhaps we will see you back on LO one day, but hopefully after you have had a nice big slice of humble *lemon* pie.
All the best,
"quick-witted" - we're not talking comedy here.
"knowledgeable" - I'm talking about reading a book. Something that's clearly too difficult for many people.
"new players" - I've never once mentioned gaming experience. I'm lamenting gamers that DO NOT READ the respective rulebooks regardless of how long they have been playing the game. I don't know why this is such a difficult concept.
"loopholes" - 99% of the rulebooks are as clear as day. If you had read anything that I have written in this thread you will see that I am talking about people whom have NOT READ the rulebook. This would infer that the questions being asked have very clear answers contained in the rulebook. There is a difference between reading a rule and seeking clarification and being as ignorant and lazy as to never read the rules and have everyone spell it out for you online.
"humble" - what are you even talking about? How does humility enter this conversation? Where did I saw that I am better than you?
People ask questions having not read the rulebook.
Discussions don't go anywhere
Basic grammar and spelling are seemingly lost online.
Your post was completely irrelevant.
for someone leaving you sure do hang around a lot. Be gone, troll
