I want to apologize to the regulars at the JBR forum
I have learned something over the last few weeks, wanted to pop in here and apologize to all the regulars on the JBR forum....apolgize for what you ask?
When this case got 'hot' again because of the John Karr crap, I jumped right in this thread, started asking questions, trying to figure it all out, NOT READ through all that had been discussed...yada yada. Got on some of yer nerves didn't I??? And I'm sure I'm not the only one who did this, won't be the first, and I'm sure won't be the last.....LOL!
However, I done wrong! I have learned recently, from being involved in a particular case, from the beginning, how AGITATING it is when people just jump in and give their theories, ideas, opinions, based on the last 3-4 posts in a thread, taking no time to read up on what has already been discussed, ruled out, ruled in, etc etc, they know it all and have all the answers, I'm sure you get my drift.
Anyhow, lesson learned, thanks for putting up with us 'jumper iners' recently(do you have a name for such behavior??) and again, I apologize, and I will NEVER do that again, on any thread!
Hugs to you all!

It was only natural for many people to jump in after the Karr ballyhoo, and imo their jumping in has done the JB forums a lot of good. For some JBR forums (not WS, but others) where it had become a little quiet in recent years have been throughly revived by the many postings.

I don't think you need to apologize either, but you're such a sweetie.
Personally, I don't mind when new people come and ask questions. Everyone has to start somewhere, and reading through threads can be really daunting, especially when some are basic back-and-forth banter. The JBR case is a big one, with many players and reams of info and evidence, and it can take a good while to get up to speed with those who have spent years debating it. Asking the regs about things can really help you get familiar with what's what, and I think people here are pretty much more than willing to elaborate on details when asked.
I hope I'm not annoying on the Trenton Duckett board. I'm still trying to learn exactly what happened when with that poor little guy.

No apologies necesssary.
I read one theory from a 'newbie' and it made total sense to me.
I can't speak for anyone else, but sometimes, those of use who have read / learned a lot sometimes cannot see the wood for the trees and need a fresh view.Above is my opinion only

Newbies are important. The folks who have been around for a while keep rehashing the same old theories. That's why it can be refreshing to have a newbie drop by with a new or different perspective.
Too often, some people who have been around a forum for a long time get too full of themselves. Newbies provide a nice balance.
My unsolicited advice: now that you are no longer a newbie, don't become jaded.

You weren't someone who aggravated me. It's the newbies who haven't done any reading up on the facts of the case, but are sure their theory is correct who bug me!This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

Hey, Christine, no need to apologize. I'm fairly new in the JBR forum myself and got into the Laci Peterson case right before the trial started. Some of these forums are extremely long and would take a looooooooong time to read through every single entry on every single thread.
Hey, Mods, maybe a sticky at the top of some of these forums containing a list of suggested threads for newbies???? I know I don't have the time to weed through each thread and would appreciate some suggested reading at times! Thanks!

"We Need Something New" I'm Always SayingOriginally Posted by Cigar
Editing to add, I've never done a poll, but wonder how many of us FS's there are here? Is anyone interested enough to do it? FS meaning we just keep an open mind until some tie-breaking fact comes up because everything can be interpreted at least two ways, and maybe more than two.

I did the same thing as you and jumped in with both feet. Fortunately the kind and dedicated people on here didn't lynch me but were very helpful and answered all my questions.
And from a IDI I went to a fence sitter and now I'm a RDI. It sounds like I'm easily swayed doesn't it?
Seriously, it was the facts that swayed me.
