When I joined this forum I was blasted with sarcasm and people talking about me as if I wouldn't read it. As my posts grew into the thousands I rarely get blasted anymore.
Recently I became a newbie with 1 post on an auto forum. I posted a comment and several people posted snide remarks basically calling me an idiot. "You really joined a forum just to ask that? LOL " and "as the "man" sic in the family you should know .... "
I'll bet if I stayed there and had thousands of posts all the smart ass remarks would dry up. What is it with people? We are slow to welcome newbies and automatically assume they are fools.
