fallingblood, I agree with you. People should do searches before they make repeated posts. But, what is the point in bashing them? All you are doing is taking an aspiring artist and discouraging him. If we treated all beginers this way, the art would completely die eventually. No one would want to be a part of it.
All I'm saying is that people could make posts that say "Do a search on 'getting a gig' " or something like that. Nice, clear, to the point, and you didn't hurt anyone's feelings. All the flaming, bashing, trolling, and excessive sarcasm are not nessesary.
Let em see if I understand this.
My post suggested 2 books that he should look into followed by a comment about being able to spell "restaurant" before he tries to get a job in one.
You concider this flaming, bashing, etc.
Your initial post contained no advice whatsoever nor did your second. Both where entirely complaints about me and your first post contained insults openly directed towards myself and Paddy.
So, who is doing the flaming, bashing, etc without contributing to the actual discussion?
