“Then the person would have to make a new thread. Which would make you even madder Hal. ”
Actually, no. Opening new threads for new problems (even if it's the same one) is the preferred method within this forum.
Furthermore, Phryss' reference to the Guide teaches people how to begin to navigate the site, to find the answers they need themselves, without reliance on this forum or other people. It is far more useful to a new player in the long run than specifically answering their question, and leaving them with no recourse next time they need something, but to return and post again.
The content of your reply is so terribly flawed, it's ridiculous. A person should in no way be obligated to join the faction that controls their starting planet just to get off of it. The NPC transport system was added almost solely for the reason of getting off planets to locations that are closer to, or may even be, the HQ of the faction you chose, to facilitate pick-up. Most factions also maintain divisions specifically geared towards picking up newer members who are in need of collection.
Clearly you lack sufficient understanding of the game to provide accurate and effective assistance, and should refrain from giving bad advice to new players.
