I get annoyed when I find blatant liars on the thread....I have seen several instances when certain posters are on several different threads and asking questions that are contradictory to information they have provided in other threads....and clearly, they are just trying to scheme for the best deal for their trip but being totally shady about it.

The "Tell Me, Show Me, Convince Me" titles bother me too...
Please would be nice.

And, could we get one more "is it worth it" thread??? Hey..I've done it too, but I have since realized that you really just need to experience it for yourself to know of it's worth it, or at least list what you value...so we can tell you if we think it would be worth it, based on your criteria.

If it is a very general question, you should do a little homework. At least say, that you've tried the Search function, but couldn't find what you were looking for.

But if it is a very specific question, ask and see what people say. Just don't come across as being too darned lazy to find something. That's what bothers me. Along with questions so general that you can't even figure out what the poster is asking. Like "Tell me about DVC". What do you want to know about DVC?

But the one that bothers me is the person who posts "Subscribing to the thread". You don't need to post to subscribe to the thread. Just use the thread tools.

Yes, and if your outsider and you ask a question they ignore you. It's like they have there own special club where they only speak to each other.

I agree you should do some research on your own, definitely. I think my main pet peeve in all of the DIS is the limitation of posts per page (although I do understand the need for those limitations.)

How many millions of times are the same questions asked, in particular - help me decide, Boardwalk or Beach Club, Contemporary or Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge or Animal Kingdom Lodge, Old Key West or Saratoga Springs, or hundreds of other resort combinations. Or asked at least 20 times a week on the resort boards- convince me to stay at a deluxe over a moderate. As someone said previously, use the search function.

Or my favorite, "stay at the Beach Club rather than the Boardwalk because it is closer to Epcot." Really? Staying at the Beach Club because it at most 3 minutes less to walk to than the Boardwalk is not a reason to choose one hotel over the other.
