Re: Are we elitists?
Well over the years I've been a member of quite a few internet fora on various subjects, and this one has to be one of the friendliest and has one of the greatest degrees of expertise.
However I've also come to learn that on the internet, some people can be ruder than they would be otherwise. It's a well known feature of the internet, and of non-face to face communication in general. Shrug it off and don't worry about it.
