Maybe you should
1. Not be an eliteist
2. Look around before you post. There are several others like this.
i think you'll find he wasn't being elitist, but trying to get relevant information. i currently have a short mohawk myself, and wear my hair differently to when it was 12 inches or so. i wouldnt want tons of people trying to give advice that doesn't apply to me.
and fuck trawling through and reviving dead threads. the beauty of a forum is you can create new threads without admin rights, meaning you can ask exactly what you want, without having to appropriate your question to fit someone's 5 year old thread.
you could always try answering his question rather than being a holier-than-thou cunt.
Trust me, there isn't even enough active members to even come close to spamming this thread. xD
And hair is still hair even 5 years ago. Creating new threads only clutters the forums even more.
Oh my, would you look at that...
And all I had to search for was the keyword "down"
regardless, he asked a question on here because he can do what he wants. you don't have any jurisdiction to say otherwise, so stop being a little madam about it. although im sure he'll thank you for providing those links, which is what you should have done to begin with rather than complaining.
Mine isn't quite 10 inches, but my roommate's is longer than that, and i did his hair for him once for fun. I put loads of pomade in the front and middle, combed it all back and put the front into a pompadour. Also used a bit of hairspray. I know its not technically that lazy, but it was WAY quicker than putting it all the way up into its full glory.
