You want rude? Just go to the DC IRC channel....talk about freaks.  :'(
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

I've actually found the IRC channel to be a very friendly, funny, and often times action packed place to hang out.

Funnily, I started using a product I first heard of here, but when I asked a question on that product's support board, I got beat with the "condescending and rude" stick by the first responder.  I still will use the product, but I'll never go back to their support boards again.  I get better answers to my questions here at DC anyway!
happened to me many times.. bet they told you to read the FAQ or something.. :)

I truly do not recall anything remotely approaching rudeness at DC. There might be an occasional misunderstanding or quick reply, but the level of respect shown others is exemplary. In my experience, tech forums are generally civil when the members are knowledgeable in the matters at hand. For incivility, try Usenet. alt.comp.freeware has good information, but it frequently nearly buried in the personal attacks of some of the posters (As you may well recall, Mouser)
DC is a haven and an invaluable resource. I don't remember how I stumbled across it, but I've a cheerful supporter/user ever since.

Heh, for incivility, try alt.lang.asm - you'd expect assembly programmers to be knowledgeable, but nah :)
