To start off the New Year, I'm going to begin with a rant against all Dupe Nazi's or Aspiring Dupe Nazi's.

WTH is up with you people? You seem to think that this board is an all consuming life, where every
thread is, or is supposed to be, read by everyone.

If there's a dupe within the last 3 or 4 pages, fine.
If you're posting information that everyone knows, such as; "GW elected to second term", fine,

Otherwise, S.......T.......F.......U......

If your life is so useless and pitiful that you have the ability to spend hour, after hour, after hour; day after day, after day on the computer, start your own site where you can be the supreme Dupe Nazi.

Otherwise, S.......T........F........U.....

There are those of us who log on once or twice a day, scan through 4 or 5 pages, and get caught up with the Arfcom current events, as well as World Wide current events.

It seems to be trendy lately to post "Dupe" and "IBTL". I don't know if it's to get your post count up or if you really don't have a life.

If this is a bandwidth issue, I'd much rather have a good dupe than to see a thread on; "I have black ooze coming out of my Scrotum, What does the Hive Mind think I should do?", or "I was caught going 165 mph in a school zone, how can I get out of the ticket?"

Hopefully 2006 will see a steady decline in our resident Dupe Nazi's.

For those of you that didn't get it.

S........T.........F............................UP

I seldom look beyond the first page. I know a dupe patrolman will come along and post links to all relevant threads, saving me the trouble.

Proper "Dupe!" policy is linking the original thread into the duplicate thread when calling "Dupe!"

The only thing worse than a Dupe!Nazi is a lazy Dupe!Nazi...

Preach brother, preach!!! Dupe Nazi's should be banned from the site.
The biggest pain in the ass Dupe Nazi is the one who posted the original
thread. The want to make sure they get all the credit for the post. BTW,
this is probably a dupe as well.

This whole site is pretty much a dupe and it goes in cycles.
The newbies come on without reading tacked threads
and ask whats the best "clips, whats the difference between an
A1, A2, A3, what is an M4, etc...

I was guilty of that too when I first came
here. That wasn't too long ago. Things were different then. I received help,
a little teasing and a warm welcome. Things have changed and now when
a newbie comes along they post, yes a dupe, and then they usually get
thrashed for it.

Personally,the "IBTL" people bother me more.One can only assuming the "IBTL" people seem to think that a high post count equates to a higher social standing within this forum.I guess the same can be said for the "Dupe" people.I really so no reason WHY people do this,other than a pathetic attempt to raise their post count.

Just send Chuck Norris after the dupe nazi's.

No, I'll tell you what is really sorry; people who post "+1."

Post count goes up by one without saying anything.

If a thread is worth responding to, then say something!

I still think every person that posts a "dupe" or an "IBTL" should have 5 deducted from his post count.

You,Sir, are correct. I can see it now.

Obituary

XXXX of AR-15.com fame died suddenly while sitting at his computer early Thursday evening.

XXXX was born in the State of Arrogance, where he spent most of his life. He died in the Stat of Ignorance, leaving behind his computer, his chair and his keyboard.

XXXX was best known for his high post count on the board.

Seriously,I think this tactic will thwart many people who add nothing to threads but abbreviations or numbers.Make it -100 posts,and hardly anyone will do it.

Unfortunately, this is pretty much the case. At least in a lot of people's minds.

This poster was the first of a most recently developed group of “Dupe” posters. The Dupe-posters spend hour after hour on Arfcom and take an unexplained delight and smug satisfaction in being the first to identify dupe topics by posting “DUPE!!!” Of course in doing so, they raise the duped topic back to the top of Page 1.

Arfcom is a for-profit site. They should just hire more moderators, actually pay them, and have them merge threads that are dupes.

DUPE!!!!

How about if you post "DUPE!" you have to post the link, too? Otherwise you get the -5 post count.

I'm tired of the people who say shit that gets a perfectly good thread locked Like the sex in the shower thread that JUST got locked because of some idiot. It's the same thing that killed BOTD and the Pit (RIP Pit, BOTD, we will forever miss you ). People need to quit doing it, there's threads that get locked while I'm in the middle of reading/posting in them and it's all because some idiot said something stupid that got negative attention from the mods. Seriously, if we want the Mods to back down, BOTD to come back, and the Pit to reopen, we need to quit posting stuff in threads that causes a lock.
