Weird N00b PM's

I don't know if anyone else has got these before but I've had about 5-6 PM's/e-mails off n00bs asking questions over the months.
Usally in the form of, "how do you convert a CD to an MP3?" etc.
I've just got an e-mail again today from a member who shall remain anon saying
Quote:
which is better direct output or waveout, i hear direct is better for some quality but wave is better for performance...help me
I suppose it beats people posting a new thread but, just, why?

Why are they picking on me?

probably the Forum Queen bit makes them think your a mod or admin and since it lets them know your female, they think your gona be nicer than most of the male population (some get quite hostile to n00bys)

Try moderating for a week. We get PM's ranging from "my computer doesn't work because...." to "I hate <<insert moderator here>> because..." or "I like jam. Do you like jam??" For every member, there is an equal and opposite fuckwit. The "anti-member", if you prefer.

The only n00b to send me a PM before he'd posted anything was one called...

...Inatlantis. Then he did it again, repeatedly, as andrewsanders. Then he got a clue and started posting in the forums.

I never get PMs. I've only used it once, and haven't had need for it since. Of course, the only people who get these random PMs are forum big-wigs, which I am not.

Some people mistake me for Tom Pepper so I get ones like, "How do I get unbanned so I can list in the yp" and "Can I be a beta tester?" and then all the other crap. Although my favorite thus far has been the guy who reported his own post (you know that report this post to a moderator link) and his reason for doing so was because he really needed help.

You're about to, unless you cut down the size of that signature image. It's three times bigger than the maximum 12500 pixel size allowed.
