So now two moderators have pointed the finger at me as the Chief Noob Troll, with at least one claiming I am, in fact, the worst of the bunch.
What a crock of ****.
I'm stunned. But I get it, the site always needs fresh villains, and I spoke out of turn again.

Hell, tell me about Throwdowns, while you're at it.
What is needed, is more welcoming in Newbietown, and more gentle steering of heavily deluded no0bs to Newbietown, where they can perhaps find out they're wrong, instead of being blasted off the site.

Yo Rabbit, relax. You're digging yourself into a hole here.

Oh well if you're calling me pompous then I can't argue with that.
But a random selection of posts pulled out of context, going back months is your proof I'm the worst offender? I don't agree with that.
I understand your point, jnp.
Trust me, I won't be anyone's bother going forward. Auslander and I already had this discussion.

There is no new noob policy... there isn't. *Meaningful look*
That said, on the flipside of members like Rabbit, I have always disagreed with members who are sugarflavor friendly to the point of inappropriate (Sri Hanuman comes to mind, but many members act like this in phases). It's as equally unproductive to misguided newbs as baseless razzing.

In this case, you are wrong. Also, recall that I said "probably the worst" which is not the same as "definitely the worst", because I'm not that presumptuous myself.
I don't think you're a bad poster. I think you and the site would benefit more from cutting the noobs more slack in all the forums for a few months. I'm not saying we're going to change our paradigm regarding the site's "no quarter given" policy. I'm saying we need to be a bit more patient with new members. If they still don't get the point after a few months, then no mercy should be shown.
Personally, I have adopted the attitude that you catch more flies with honey than ****.
I've been less than kind to that noob who attacked Judo Gene. I tried to be more civil in my last post to him in that thread because I'm trying to practice what I preach.
