in a sense, yes. Chit chat is fine on a social forum. This is a place I come to for help, not to socialize. As a user and not an advisor, even I get tired of reading the same question over and over and over and over again. I find myself screaming at my computer, "DOESN'T ANYONE PAY ATTENTION??!! DIDN'T YOU JUST READ WHAT BLAKE SAID 19 HUNDRED TIMES BEFORE??!! DO YOU NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO DO BUT POST REDUNDANT QUESTIONS??!!"
I know it's dangerous to use all caps in a forum and I'm not trying to flame anyone at all. But Blake is right. Learn from what is already here and ask new and progressive questions when they come up. The concepts here cannot be learned overnight and require a lot of practice. Go out and practice one or two things at a time and when you get stuck and can't find the answer here by searching or need clarification, then post questions. This forum is a valuable resource if it doesn't start to become cluttered with useless posts. For that and the idle chit chat, use the pdga forum - it's already useless. For serious students of the game, this is the place to get useable and substantial information.
Again, I am not trying to offend anyone and I've learned a ton from everyone here, but let's not abuse the incredible free service Blake is providing to us by not at least looking to see if he might have already answered the question you are about to post. Blake, I (and my doubles partners) thank you tremendously for all the help, keep up the great work.
