I don't know why it hasn't been done before...

Just had to make a group for the terrible instructables. If you've ever felt the urge to point out a lame instructable, here's the place to do it. Feel free to post nominations in here. Of course, it's hard to follow the "be nice" policy with something like this. Really, though, if the instructable was that bad, the instructor usually didn't actually care to do it well. If they did try, and it just turned out bad, then they can still be added. Including a few tips on their page to encourage improvement wouldn't be a bad thing to do. Mostly, though, this is for those really terrible instructables that really should be deleted. Something like "Make light from matches. Instructions: Go to a dark room and light some matches." Have at it.

I think this forum is a bad idea.

well i still think the group is offensive and should be deleted
You had no opinion about the group until your project turned up in it. The group (and this thread) was fading away until you revived it, dragging the whole Coolz business back into the light of day.

Two choices - just put up with it, or PM Boris, explain what you want and ask nicely, this time without waving around threats you have no power to follow up.

See, I told you I'd be watching.

I'm not particularly sorry to say I removed myself from this group. Not positive if I can eliminate it totally, but I would if I could. Regardless, it's a silent reminder of some things that may be better left silent. Still obnoxious that I keep getting messages when someone posts though. :/
If you go to the group itself, and you are the author of the group, there should be a admin button "manage this group". Click that, and then there are a set of option to the left of the page, one of which is to delete the group. As for the messages, then doesn't that serve you right for starting it in the first place?

Indeed. In my defense, I was hoping the community could take a little tongue-in-cheek humor. Regardless, should have realized it would eventually devolve. Ah well, I'll see about deleting the group now...
i'll pass.........that ible did get the admin message
Kiteman: He's the hero that Instructables deserves, but not the one it needs right now. And so we'll hunt him, because he can take it, because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a dark knight.
That gives me an idea for an Instructable.

I just happen to have a sheet of birch-faced plywood as well...
