in thread Reaped: Where Can I Find A Banner Generator For My Website?

I'm not saying it didn't deserve a downvote: I gave it one too, before replying. I too would hope (even expect) that new users would lurk for a while to get a feel for any discussion forum. I was primarily trying to fend off the flood of flames that was surely about to descend by politely pointing out the poster's mistake. And the inclusion of a useful reply (whatever the intention or ignorance of the poster) is surely better than a pure flame.

    No disagreements from me there. I misunderstood your post and thought you were suggesting someone shouldn't get any flack for off-topic posts. I didn't see any flames, so I didn't see your post as an extinguisher. My response to such posts is to not reply at all rather than to flame. I think it is good that you included an answer.
