Default Hello

Hello Everyone,

I don't really know what to say! I guess I'll just jump in and say I'm new to forums and new to the IT world. I am married, mother of 2 girls, and just finished a+ cert. prep. I plan on working with puters for at least a year before even considering writing my a+. Guess you can say I'm not quite a typical farmers wife!

Alanis

Does your mother know you greet strangers this way? You can call yourself whatever you want, but referring to someone as fresh meat on a welcome forum is downright rude. Lemme give ya a piece of advice, females do not like being called a piece of meat.....fish... squid whatever... Try a better pick up line.

Better yet, ditch the pick up line and say hi...welcome.

Alanis, please excuse our impetuous youngsters here. Welcome to the forum and good luck on passing the A+ cert. We need more women/girls around the forums... hope 2 C u posting more often.

And I never said I was a MOD. The simple fact is that Alanis doesn't know you or your posting style, your words certainly could come across as offensive to a female that's crowded on the boards by a large number of males, and to greet her in that manner is not the most welcoming -
