Maybe I'm wrong (and I'll probaby regret saying this...) but it seems like if you are a newbie you have no slack whatsoever. If you disagree you get flamed and told to calm down if you respond yet if your a veteran, you essentially can say whatever you want and if its objectionable, its called a "sense of humor". That just seems a little unfair. aw shucks... maybe I'm just cranky from not enough sleep...

ask any rookie on a sports team, any sports team, and theyll tell you the same thing. dont worry, we were all newbies at one point.

and hey! sometimes awards get presented to nice newbies! i remember giving one to a famous gen-tree. he got banned though. i resent giving him such a prestigous award.

but i will dish some out, and maybe you'll qualify! *claps hands

I think Zooropa wants to argue with me.

This might sound silly, especially when pertaining to an internet message board, but in some cases it can be like starting a job. You begin in one "low-ranking" position, then as you aquire more knowledge, etc. you "move up". I'm not saying this in regards to who you know, or anything of that sort, but it fits to a certain degree. Some people catch on faster than others, some may take a while longer, but I believe we as a community try our best to respect one another.

Did that make sense? Or am I babbling to myself again? lol

Personally, i don't think newbies should be treated any different than us older posters (and vice versa) in terms of any benefits or bashing or evil cliquing, favoritism etc...
We're all supposed to be equal among ourselves, right?

ps: As a "veteran" poster, i can assure you that the large number of posts doesn't protect people from getting flamed.
(unfortunately, increasing number of posts doesn't guarantee intelligent threads either)

True dat true dat. I have not seen any noticeable favoritism. I do also think it comes in waves. Maybe it is the change in season or some weird astrological alignment. There just seams to be a big pucker factor thing going on here (as in ass pucker). I was here in Oct under a different name for a little while and did not really notice it then.

U2girl and Zooropa are correct.
No one should be treated any differently, I dont think anyone needs to earn anything. Its a message board.
Newbies have just as much right to post and to be listened to and replied to as anyone else here.
Its nice to see new blood, and I enjoy seeing newbies around here. And Im talking about actual new people, not new handles.
Don't worry Zooropa, Im proof that "interf age" means nothing.

As far as being curteous and acting like decent human beings goes, thats up to the people posting.
If you show others respect, they should respect you, and if not, they arent worth worrying about at all.
