NAG or ridicule, advice or insults, whatever path works for you, I s'pose.
Or you could revert to recommending Folgers ...

So what do you recommend for people who land and don't contribute?
I have tried asking.  I have tried NAGging.
What do YOU recommend Larry?
"I roast and i have been watching.  What you people ned is" SOMEONE TO
CONTRIBUTE SOMETHING?
Just Wondering...

Just a reasoned reply, that's all.  Something like, "We enjoy blasting *$,
it's all in fun, please ignore if it bothers you" which was done more or
less before the piling-on occurred, or maybe "You're right, dude,
absolutely.  So let's talk about something else, like what are you roasting
these days and what roaster do you use?" which was, I believe, also tried.
But I think the guy may have gotten buried in the avalanche of abuse, mostly
in 3rd-party mode.
In short, he may not have contributed with his one post, but the rest of us
have made it worse without contributing anything constructive - and we've
been here a long time and should really be better than that.  My opinion
only.

I meant talking about someone as "that guy" - making him the object of the
posts, when in fact he was the original poster.  Like being at a meeting or
party and having the people around you talk about you as though you weren't
there.

6) From: Brett Mason
Fair enough...  Bill and others like him deserve a warm welcome and
every bit the camaraderie as can be found here.  Bill - hope you get
that, we like you here...
Also, Bill, you and others who may not have posted need to know, most
of us like to hear what people are doing, what they like about
roasting, what htey have learned, what they may question, and where
they are in this process.  Bill, you and others who are new, need to
jump in here and share what you're trying, what you're doing etc.
And Bill, here's an apology from me.  Your first post seemed to be one
of counsel.  We have had many people jump into the conversation and
ONLY offer counsel, with no real participation.  So after a while, we
get crusty and rude.  I was like that, and apologize to you for being
that way.  I should not have lumped you into that group of critics who
never contribute.
Please contribute.  There are no wrong answers on this list.  Well
there's one - to jump in and counsel and advise without sharing about
coffee.  Yep, that will get the bristles up our backs...
So, please accept my apologies.  I shouldn't have lumped you in with
$$$$$$$, with *******, with %%%%%, and with the many other < that
I seem to have assumed you were with.
Welcome,
Brett

It is a privilege to be privy to so many superb, mature, and thoughtful 
responses to the newby. Ya sure put him in his place! It makes me so 
proud I can hardly stand myself!
Thanks, everyone. We need to cull out the trash, so keep on top of it. I 
can hardly wait to see the responses to the next attempt to offer some 
constructive criticism to the group.
Doesn't he know that criticism isn't a contribution? When will they ever 
learn???
