    Today is the 5th time I have attempted to read this group. Each time I start
    reading I end up spending just about the whole time reading nonsense. Is
    there a newsgroup for serious MCSE's and candidates?

    Yes, this is it. We just get a lot of noise from people who can't be
    bothered with learning the basics first.

    Ignore the nonsense. There are some really good posts on this board.

    This can be a useful group. Just weed throught he garbage and you will find
    good postings. In time, you will know who posts on-topic and who should be
    avoided.

    If people post dumb questions, it is likely they will receive
    appropriate replies.
    If anyone ever posts a sensible question, it is also likely that they
    will receive an appropriate reply.

    If you'd care to start the ball rolling ...

    GIGO.

    As he stated... You provide garbage as input, you get garbage as output.

    Are you really that new, Billy, or is this not something they say in
    ENGLAND?

    You're crazy. We know irony.

    It's like rain... on your wedding day. Or a free ride... when you've
    already paid... Or good advice that you just didn't take...


    oh wait... Alanis is Canadian isn't she...

    You're experiencing the same disappointment that anyone who came here with
    serious intentions has already experienced. Since we can't police
    ourselves, I actually wish this were a moderated newsgroup. Unfortunately
    there is no where else to go. All I can recommend is to set the ignore
    conversation flag on threads that are off topic. Believe it or not, it has
    actually gotten much better over the last few weeks (most likely because
    certain individuals have not been posting), so there is some hope that
    someday we'll be able to come here and share ideas with other MCSEs and
    wannabe MCSEs.

    The purpose for some of those people you're referring to coming here is to
    learn the basics. There are people out there that have a genuine interest,
    but don't know newsgroup etiquette, or don't know that questions have been
    asked before, or whatever the case may be. As an example someone may ask,
    how do I perform a certain function. They're then summarily flamed because
    the question has been asked many times before, or they could have found the
    answer if they did some research on their own. I'll agree that some
    questions do deserve the response the get (although I disagree that it needs
    to be given in the manner that it is), but if you were sitting in on a class
    and asked a teacher a question, how would you feel if the teacher flamed you
    because someone asked the same question last class, and the class before
    that, etc? The purpose of these newsgroups is for people with similar
    interest to gather and exchange information. Sometimes that means answering
    the same question more than once. For those that don't have that kind of
    patience they don't have to respond. It seems that the same people that do
    the flaming for dumb or repeated questions have no problem with devoting a
    considerable amount of energy to "nonsense" as the original poster noted.

    Why do you think that we have to subscribe to your definition of a dumb
    question? ...and who made you the protector of the integrity of this
    newsgroup?
