No, I just wonder whether or not they are dumb.

No same as CRYN....

No, but I sometimes cringe when an unsuspecting newbie starts a "hello, new here" thread in Generals.

I generally do. I either think, "Fantastic. Someone cool" or "Jesus, we're going to tear him/her apart."

I'am still sort of a Newbie... But when I see them, as long as they don't use "u, ur, lol" a million times, and keep posting "Hey, I'am new here!" posts, then they are fine with me.

no not really

Yes. I feel bad for some those who use netspeak and write stupid stuff. After I read that, I know that they are going to get bashed. I kind of feel bad because even though what they wrote was stupid, they really shouldn't get bashed as badly as they are going to get. It's one thing to correct a post or tell them gently that what they said wasn't appropriate, but to just cuss and post pictures that insult newbies is wrong.

Not really, i dont pay attention to how many posts a person has had. I am pretty new to this site too.

I don't think I've ever noticed before. I never go to the general boards, I just answer questions, though. Maybe it's more obvious elsewhere.
17 yrs ago - Thursday 9/9/04 - 7:37:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
yeah sometimes I do. But mostly I just see if they're dumbasses or not
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 11/15/04 - 7:45:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I never put that much thought into the newbies
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 2/3/05 - 7:58:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
im a newbie but i would never pu "new here" posts.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 5/3/05 - 10:21:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
I see if they have anything good to say.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 5/3/05 - 10:28:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, never have.

Sometimes, depends on the noob.
