Q:
Why do people have to give "smart@$$" answers? We post questions on here to get help from fellow RESPECTFUL hunters. Not to read smart comments from people trying to be fuuny. Don't get me wrong, I love humor, but I respect those of you who give good, serious answers intended to help others.

I think you will find a mixture of answers. Some as you mention will try to be smart, but I think you will find there are many on here who also have a huge amount of experience and knowledge. Take it all in, I look at it as all part of the experience.

There is one in every crowd and is some crowds more. I have been guilty myself a few times but sometimes people need to think about a question before they ask it, instead of just setting themselves up.

I Think a little poetic license is good as is a little regional humor as long as the info is clear concise and not demeaning to the "poster". Meaning what you say and saying what you mean can be harder than it sounds sometimes.

Carl and huntnow have their fingers on it. Sometimes people just leave themselves so wide open that some of us can't resist. I'm guilty of doing it, and I've had it done to me. Don't take life so seriously---you'll never get out of it alive, anyway.

Amen country, life is just too short. When the door is open, it is hard to not walk in. And by the way, how have those wild swamp monkeys been doing?

There is a differance between humor and being a smart a$$. Being funny is fine, being the other, not so much in my opinion.

Seriously, humor can be cathartic!

Santa, those dang Swamp Monkeys have been run out of the swamps by the drought and have started eating the pine cones in the longleaf stands. The little b@st@rds will throw the green cones at you if you turn your back, and they HURT. The night of the full moon I heard a terrible squealing and grunting from the field down in front of the camp house and when I went to look I saw what appeared to be Swamp Monkeys trying to ride a big old feral hog. I couldn't get a shot before they went off into the woods. Vicious devils, they are.

That's a true story and I know it because I just now wrote it.

We all come from different places around the world and one thing you have to know is that we're all "boys" even though there are some women around.
Thick skin is the best defense, but remember what you may not find "funny" is hilarious to others because they relate to it.
Take in what you need, brush off the rest.

Over time, I think you'll see patterns develop of people who respond to legitimate questions seriously and those that don't. Be patient, look for the meaningful answers and reject the others as meaningless or poor efforts at humor.
We've got a great talent pool here, but some questions may leave a little latitude for humor, and a few questions have been asked so often that it's almost assumed someone is trying to stir the pot or generate controversy.
Let's face it, some of us are cranky old farts or snotty young wise-a$$es. Somewhere in a series of answers, you'll find a few pearls of wisdom surrounded, at times, by a little garbage. It's difficult to be certain when you can't see the person's facial expression or hear the tone of their voice, and it's difficult to write well, but many of us will try to give you a good answer. Hang in there, pardner.

I can't say anything better than Ed just did. Most of the time posters here respond with serious legitimate responses but occasionally you can't help yourself.

I don't find being funny a problem. For every funny person there are several serious ones. The problem people are the ones who don't understand the difference between humor and rudeness. They are the ones that just get to me

some people find humor in everything, some want to be helpful, we just have to deal with the way people are and not be too judgmental
