Noob quality

Can I make a suggestion? Can we ban these people who sign up and post crap like "OMG IM LOOKIN FOR A GTO DONT HAVE MUCH MONEY WHAT SHUD I LOOK FOR LOL?"

Or anything where it's obvious they never bothered to do at least a minimal search, like the eternal "whats the best _____ mod" topic.

I mean, come on, I lurked here for about a month or so before I bought my GTO or even joined, and just searched for information I wanted.

You would think if you were serious about buying this car, you would know better than to simply look for opinions, and find out what common issues are without asking an owner.

Maybe I'm too much of a purist.

There are no rules governing the banning of airheads, the grammar impaired, and those who lack common sense. As long as they play be the rules, they are welcome here.

I feel you on this, but every now and then someone does post something that sounds stupid and I should know, then I learn something.

Plus we were all noobs once. I think my first thing I asked on the forum was what Judges rear bumper was, of course its SAP, but I didn't know of SAP since I had an 04...

2003 Corvette Z06 - MGW shifter, Corsa X pipe, Corsa Xtreme exhaust, Texas Speed long tubes w/o cats, PowerStop rotors/pads, Conti DWS tires, C6Z51 F&R sways, C5R headlights, tuned

04 GTO - sold

I can't believe the amount of noobies who just ask 1 question, and then are never heard from again. Sometimes it seems like there are 3 or 4 a day.
