    Default Anti-NoOb mentality...

    Even though I've been away from here for a while (or perhaps largely due to it), I find myself skimming over posts by anyone who has either a A)low post count or B)joined recently. I often do it without even realizing it. I'm just like "oh, he hasn't been here long. Wtf does he know?" I'm kind of amazed at myself. Granted, 7 1/2 years ago when I joined, being a NoOb was a stigma that was hard to shake. I think that a lot of it comes from the people fussing at the moderators about this, that or the other thing and just displaying their ignorance for the rest of us to judge them upon. My instant response is "wtf are you bitching about? You don't know what this place was like before moderators...No moar hope for better days..."

    Its really annoying, considering that most of the people here that I adore have not been here as long as I have.

    I don't skip over users with low post counts, but if I see that a new user has a trend of posting really dumb or unconstructive stuff, I'll usually skip over the topics they make. I'll usually still even read their posts, if they're part of a discussion I'm following. I don't think I've ever added one person on the ignore list.

    Yeah, I did read it, but only because it is far shorter than your usual post.

    Omni, I do that too, though, generally that has very little to do with whether or not they are new here. I think that a lot of new members go through that "annoying as fuck and totally useless" posting period and a lot of people get lumped in with the useless people. That happened to me, like four years ago, when Rutegard first joined and I had just returned to the boards after a year long absence. Which is actually why I have this account. Better to be thought a nOob than to be lumped in with notoriously annoying posters. (Ana, if you read this, don't take offense. A lot has changed since then.)

    I was doing exactly that when this thread caught my eye. I can remember when I still thought of you as "too new" to really pay attention to, but I guess this is proof those days are well and truly gone.
    Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks
