Hopefully this remains useful and isn't ruined by little girls which tbh is the majority of XDA nowadays and gets a genuinely useful thread closed.
So to sum up: follow the XDA rules.
IMO this is not necessary, people need to use the report post button and mods need to step on the gas.
That will clean the forum up, leaving only good information and good examples for the noobs. Now they see a forum full of flaming and just join in with the fun..
This forum might be fouled up by people acting like toddlers, but what's even worse is trying to raise them instead of just giving them a slap and cleaning their **** up asap.
