Re: Are we elitists?

Well....I just took a quick look at the "Introduce Yourself" forum, and quickly scrolled back through October (last 90 days)....and YES....there are quite a few posts with 0 replies.

I was surprised...I kinda figured there might be one or two....there were at least a dozen.

I can see how that might turn someone off....and if they browsed the forums and happened over a few of the more "energetic" threads going on, I can see how this person came away with that opinion.

I'm not saying I agree with it (the opinion).....I post on several forums and have been posting since usenet, so I've been around and have seen some truly tough rooms.....just like any other forum, you learn who the yo-yo's are and to ignore them.

So, in answer to the Admins OP....No, we're not elitists, mean and unwelcoming. Can't please everyone though; sorry he/she got miffed. Oh well.
