Dale Gribble is right on this man. I too was shot down in the begining. I was also as upset about it as it appears that you are. The thing is this,
there is a format that all members and mods are expected to adhere to on this site. I know at first it seems very constraining and even a bit
totalitarian, but over time it begins to make sense (at least it did for me).
Also, Dale's suggestion you contact a mod to talk things over with is not a bad idea either. You can click on "Board" at the top of the page and at
the bottom of the page that links you too you will see a list of online members, mods names are in bold type. There is also a freshman forum and a few
others where you can post questions.
My suggestion to you is, take it easy, and I mean that in a very friendly way. This is a great site, but it is not just any old web page. I was
surprised by the rigor when I first got here too. I was a bit resentful for the way my posts were treated, and down right pissed when I got a warning.
In the end how ever I am happy I found it and that I took the time to settle in.
I am a noob here too but if you would like feel free to U2U me and I will help you out if I can. Hope you feel better soon, and welcome to ATS.
