Re: Are we elitists?
I recall when a very high post member (like 20k ish) used to skewer newbies that asked routine questions without doing their own research and put a self written guide to SN in their signature line.
The guide was pretty good. The approach was as elitist as they come. I haven't seen anything like it in a long time. I never did hear the story behind why he left, but it was crossed swords of some kind, I'm sure.
The fact that the entire bar doesn't come over and slap your back like you were a long lost friend is silly. You have to walk in and make friends. That's life. Even the funny example of Norm, in the sitcom Cheers, points out that it wasn't his first day in the bar.
