Brown Cafe, Reddit

First I feel like this should be in UPS Discussions(because it's a Brown Cafe discussion) and more members will contribute but if the Mods don't please move this to where you think it should be.

So just the other day I got on Reddit for the first time. A driver was telling me he goes on there all the time for information. So I thought I'd check it out. I read a bunch of posts and was shocked by how bad the information was! The stuff about 22.4s on there is so ridiculous that you can tell none of them have even read the 22.4 contract language.

So as I'm reading all these post I run into this...

And I was amazed at the amount of people that agreed with these people especially after reading a lot of posts on Reddit that were so incorrect or just ridiculously bad.

The reason for this is I thought a discussion might be interesting. I believe most of these people are upset because they don't hear what they want and also don't understand how different it is everywhere. I will admit that we as a forum can come down on people pretty hard sometimes and some people can't handle that but it's kind of the UPS way. Thoughts?

Also it makes me cringe thinking of some of these people taking the advice from Reddit and being fired or just looking like complete idiots because of it.

Oh... also which one of you posted this? :)

True but still surprised me some especially since I learned so much from this site
Sift through the rough edges and there is a lot of good solid information and advice on here.
If they don't like how that information is dispersed....:censored2: em. Dont ask for my knowledge and tell me how to deliver it

I understand what you're saying. You mean the repetitive threads started every year. People get to upset about this in my opinion. Not everyone has been on here since 2002 or whatever. The search function is also not the greatest unless you really know how to use it.

I can understand some of the hate. We as a forum are good at ganging up on people sometimes. Though so many people come on here with a "I want it now" attitude that they bring it on themselves.
