Please do get in contact with him; I'm sure he'd love the idea of posing as a kind of newbie-eating, communist scare-crow for your edification. :P

I doubt his reply would be usable under CoC. He would probably flame the suggestion about being used as a boogyman to frighten others.

Still it would be a trial by fire experience guaranteed to make newbies appreciate how good this are here.

TM seems to have achieved mythic status.

TM does not belong here. He always was a masive TOOL.

VCH, even if TM isn't exactly a member anymore, I'm pretty sure that comment goes against the CoC. Try not to be a jerk.

I have not been here in a while, so I am hoping someone can direct me to some recent examples of elitism on these boards. I would be very interested to examine them.

This smacks of elitism! I mean really. They nominate themselves, they have all the power. They are the elite!

Edit- All hail the moderators and praise the administrators.

Please. We don't nominate ourselves. We nominate each other in order to provide a flimsy veil of respectability.

I don't know about actual 10 year-olds, but we definitely have a few who are 12 or 13. But we have many who are older than 20, so the age range is actually wider than 10 years.

There have definitely been 10-year-olds here in the past, and I imagine there still are now. Certainly there must be 10-year-old lurkers.

Well, let's see. I know Iffy is thirteen, and I joined when I was ten, which means I am thirteen.

I don't think I act like it though. My mental age seems to be higher then my physical age, but that's probably my ego speaking. I'll let you guys decide if I act like a thirteen year old or not.

Nalyd, who is also thirteen, thinks you're older than thirteen, mentally. Himself. . . sometimes. But he's more often ten. ;)

Compared to some people your age (and older) that have been on this board, you act like the very incarnation of wisdom.

On the other hand, well, Rosycat.

Be able to make a better argument would go along more of the lines of being experinced. The main problem I have with elitism is the sense of entilment that comes with it. along the lines of 'I have been here for ages that makes me right and you' wrong mindset. Thier is nothing wrong with being a vetern or being sure of your self but ignoring or flameing someone becuase they are new instead of their arugment or ideas is not a good thing. I'm not sure if this forum has that problem but then again it is not my place to say.

Actually, I'm fairly sure that everything is based on looks. You know, just like real life.

Seriously. There are only about two or three people I miss from these boards, and Rosycat is one of them.

Come to think of it, what I miss most about Rosycat is her more entertaining acerbic comments, and we have at least one girl who is holding up the tradition of those.

I must say, the Manchester dance scene doesn't quite live up to it's reputation.

There's an URL lurking about here somewhere, if you're clever enough to find it. Think grammar.
