View Full Version : N00b (sp?) Anger And What To Do About It

I have noticed that the Planet N00bs (sp?) are displaying a high degree of animosity lately and my curiosity is heightened. I am, therefore, posting this compelling and thought provoking thread which I call, "N00b (sp?) Anger And What To Do About It".

Why are these N00bs (sp?) so ill-tempered and irritable? What drives them to demean, disparage, denigrate, and degrade veteran posters and other N00bs (sp?) alike with such extreme choler and animus? Does this new generation no longer aspire to be good N00bs (sp?)? And, most importantly, who is going to do something about it?

Has Mr. Bob Dole lost his burst? Have all the uncalled for and unfortunate attacks on Mr. Skip Towne caused him to soften his heart? Has Mr. Rain Man lost his copy of the complete works of William Carlos Williams? Ladies and gentlemen, we may well be on the verge of anarchy and I am deeply concerned.

Disclaimers: Sorry if repost. Sorry if way-over-the-top post.

The thing about nOOBs is you can use your slams over and over. Since they are new, the slams are new to them. Save the original material for the guys that have been around a while.

I do think that Skip has mellowed down after being blasted by many of the Planet's regulars for his animosity toward n00bs. Perhaps they're just not being weeded out as well as they used to be.

That's about right. You don't weed them out, and this is what you get.

I've seen two n00bs in the past few days either space or underscore their way through a normally censored word such as the above example. I've not seen anyone one called out on it.

Also, posters are getting younger and younger. Younger people were not raised to show respect, IMO. THey come in here and act like they have something to prove, or like the world owes them something.

As for the older n00bs that act like this, I really don't know what their excuses are for acting like douches.

What I have noticed about the younger generation is that they dont show respect at all. Quite materialistic in ways, and rather annoying to boot

There's an old Planeteer saying, Ms. Jilly.

"When a N00b (sp?) has boobs, Planeteers lube their tubes and rep green cubes."

Examples? The only irate/confrontational n00b on my radar has been eChief. He got into a few pissing matches his first few times out.

Maybe they're like abused childred who turn out to be abusers. If we're kind and welcoming to them, they'll in turn be that way to others. :grouphug:

Is there a number of posts one must reach in order to not be considered a n00b any longer?

I think it depends on your reaction. People that take up rediculous positions and refuse to logically debate them are in for a rough ride. If you're not an ass and are willing to consider others' positions, you normally don't catch much flack. I'm not sure I've ever had someone refer to me as being a n00b except in jest since I came here.

One of the biggest reasons i JUST HAD to join the Planet was because of how tough it is to get started here, you have to go through a very rigorous vetting process here and it should stay that way. When i was just reading the threads (B4 joining) it amazed me how many guys were verbally beaten to within an inch of their lives for gettin' to frisky early on...............The Planet closes ranks with its own :arrow:
