    Hello,
    I would appreciate it if you would take the time to answer these simple questions.

    1). Do you enjoy message boards?
    2). Have you developed any lasting friendships on a message board?
    3). How would you improve the layout of one?
    4). Is there a group/type of person you avoid on a message board?
    5). Do you spread the word about certain message board sites?
    6). Generally speaking, what is your experience with more "senior" posters than yourself?
    7). Are you a staff member on any message boards?
    8). If the answer to #7 is yes, how do you feel about it?
    9). Do you welcome new members to sites?
    10). What is your experience with the flaming and/or trolling of other members?

    1. Yep, they're pretty fun
    2. A couple thanks to a certain club I'm in :D 
    3. Not sure really
    4. The perverts/spammers/flamers
    5. All the time, if I think my friends would be interested
    6. It's been okay. I mostly talk with people in my age group though.
    7. Yep, on one that I made
    8. It got pretty frustrating because of spammers.
    9. Of course.
    10. I haven't personally been flamed, but I've seen it happen to others. Sometimes I'll try to say something to smooth things over.

    Why, exactly, are you asking these?

    (1) Sure. It's a decent source for news, occasional lulz and anonymous venting that nobody reads.
    (2) Nope.
    (3) I'm going to second the suggestion of "cake".
    (4) Anyone with poor grammar and/or spelling and/or punctuation, anyone who POSTS IN ALL CAPS, anyone who post lyk thur wrtin a txt msg, etc.
    (5) Nope.
    (6) No idea, I don't pay attention to anyone's post count or join date, since it doesn't automatically correlate with maturity.
    (7) Nope.
    (8) Nope.
    (9) Not unless I feel the need to boost my post count.
    (10) No idea. I don't read a lot of people's posts and have a low threshold for putting people on my ignore list, so I miss most of it.

    Oh man, sorry to disappoint. If it makes you feel better I would have just answered "maybe", "no", or "none of your damn business" to all, so it wouldn't have been that great anyway.
