    See, you're wrong Rabbit.

    I can't believe this exact same discussion is still going on. In most cases you shouldn't hassle noobs any more than you would hassle Phrost or Asia or Der or Tranquil for saying the same thing. That's been my policy from day one. There is no trial by fire followed by a free pass. It should be a constant tempering and testing.

    When someone makes claims about the effectiveness of a technique, the organized structure of a specific wood grain, or acts like a bad ass by making empty promises or invitations of/to violence without provocation or showing they know these things first hand or are at least willing to throw hands they will be questioned by me for as long as they post on these topics with any level of seriousness. Whether they be a noob or a douche nozzle with 6,283 posts.

    ... wow that was a horribly written run on sentence and a badly structured paragraph. I feel bad about it, but the point still stands.

    I always took the no0b rule to mean, be polite in Newbietown, (until moved to YMAS/Trollshido). Don't **** on the welcome mat for the site, and all.

    I would hope that no0bs outside of newbietown just get normal treatment.

    Well I think i'm a lurker because I pretty much visit this forum everyday but still didn't post much.

    It's just that I don't really think that I have that much to say about Martial Arts because i've only done 3 years of BJJ (some shooto/MMA) and the rest was ninjutsu (jinnenkan for a year untill zendokan/bullshido saved me) and krotty (shotokan) when I was little. So don't really have that much to add to the site, IMHO.

    Ironically, your humble attitude means you would probably make an excellent poster. See below.

    Don't know to be honored or scared right now. I posted in the Eurothrowdown for cheap hotels and trams. I speak dutch and figured might be easier finding some hotels then when you don't speak dutch.

    When were we ever discussing your personal policy or "usuals-vs-newbs"?

    I was referring to the actual Newbietown policy, which states:

    "Introductions, stupid questions, and general noobness. TROLLING THE NOOBS IS A BANNABLE OFFENSE IN THIS FORUM. Of course, if you catch them in the wild, it's open season. So if you're a noob and aren't sure about something... POST IT HERE!"

    Who has done those things? Be specific...innuendo is cowardice.

    What does this have to do with the site's policy of not cuddling and consoling noobs again?

    Are you important around these parts or something?

    Let's see if the monkey follows his own advice, hmm? Until then...

    Shut the **** up Rabbit. Your online ego is getting out of hand.

    And yes, BFM is a moderator who has been gone a long time. He is far more aware of the dynamics of this website than you are.

    You think you have e-weight to throw around. You do not. I am tempted to temp ban you to teach you a lesson, but that would be throwing my e-weight around. Lucky for you, I practice what I preach.

    I've said this to you before, and I'll say it again now. You need to empty your cup.

    Maybe he should learn the new rules then.

    Maybe you should too.

    Maybe you guys need to make up your fucking minds.

    All I know is I wasn't the one harassing noobs in the first place, but apparently now I'm being put up as a patsy for it.

    Nice try. BFM is right....nothing's changed.

    "E-weight???"

    Oh, and to everyone else, site policy concerning noobs is changing per Phrost's wishes. Those changes are still being hammered out, but they are coming.

    Not certain "open season" meant literally go hunting.
