I never said that we should ban somebody with bad information. I mean that we should ban somebody who, after given an education and have been informed as to what the correct information is, STILL CONSISTENTLY
gives bad information, THEN they should be banned.
For example, the following hypothetical conversation:
OP #1: Hey my fish has fin rot what do I do.
Offending Person #1: ES and Melafix should fix him right up
Person #2: No, ES and Melafix will do more harm than good, I recommend AQ Salt and clean water
OP#2: Hey my fish has swim bladder disease what do I do.
Offending Person #1: I use AQ salt and some peas for that
Person #10: No, ES is better, peas are not recommended but etcetcetc.
OP#3: Hey my fish has fin rot what do I do
Offending Person #1: ES AND PEAS
Person #3: Um... we normally use AQ salt and clean water
In this circumstance I would personally PM the person after numerous offences with wrong information.
It's not such a big deal to swallow your pride and realize that you don't know how to solve a problem. Don't go off and look up something random on Google and say your word is correct.
I'm not telling people to be scolded because they don't know how to answer something. If you don't know, don't post. Not only do you waste the OP's time, but you provide conflicting information within the thread when people who DO know hat they're talking about post information.
There is NO SHAME in being wrong, but going around bragging that you're an expert at typing into Google does not make you an expert.
