I have seen a lot of bashing of newer members. Why is this? I respect the people that have made this site what it is, but there needs to be some new blood come in to add different life experience as well.

Yes, I am a newbie to the site, No I can't sit behind a computer all day and look at my new favorite place to be(on the web).

Right of passage I guess.

Who cares...its only the interweb.

Because humiliating another person gives one a sense of power, fuck them and welcome. BTW I was formerly known as camel1 and I started from scratch again just to change my screen name. Are you in the USFS?

There's NO problem at all with being a new member. All of us were new member at some point.

A high post count (like mine ) is just indicative of how some of us have no real life!


The only time people seem to really comment on someone's "newbie" staus, is if some newcomes starts posting provocative and inflamatory topics, like "Hillary Clinton is awesome, and all you inbred gunowners should bow down and worship her", or "the M16 is crap, and will be replaced by the XM-8 in six weeks" ... or something like that.

It's simply allowing for a period of getting to know each other.

Would you, on your first few visits to someone's house flop down on the couch, kick off your shoes, put your feet on the coffee table, fart, scratch your balls and then start making demands and shouting your opinions in your hosts face?

No, I wouldn't either but you'd be damned surprised how many people show up on a forum like this and do the cyberspace equivalent of what I've described.

Gotta take some time and let people get to know you and THEN you can fart, scratch, knock back a beer and let your hair down.

Link Posted: 5/22/2005 10:40:50 PM EDT
My observations have been that many who troll, and many who think they are very knowledgeable on this board, fall into two descriptions.

The trolls use the anonymity of the internet to behave in a way they would never do to someone's face. They post purely to entertain them self and to annoy in any mannor possible. Whatever you post... they will find a way to attack.

The armchair experts that have become experts by reading what others have done, then seeing them self as knowledgeable as the true experts. At the same level as those who actually did and or do what they read about. They can quote all the actual experts to the punctuation mark. They are quick to jump in the middle of your post and tell you how wrong you are, but can not provide their "credentials" when challenged. They too are using the anonymity of the internet to keep from admitting they haven't actually had any first hand experience... just their collection of downloads. This bunch assumes that your knowledge is somehow based on your post count. The self proclaimed experts are not has been's... but are never were's! Wannabe's

If you filter out the trolls and self proclaimed experts. You will find this the best collection of correct information related to the subject of this board. It is a wealth of information.

For me it is like a train wreck. I know it is gonna be really bad... but I can't help but look.


Short answer... the lower your post count... to way too many... the more ignorant you are and you can't have any valuable knowledge... only those with high post counts can know anything.

Just factor all that in... and you will see how great this site is in spite of those kind of people!

Welcome!!!

The most outspoken person online generally tends to be the pimply geek with no life, his come backs come from some other forum that he copies and pastes he has no life or imagination, and this is his outlet for the anger that he has, because he still lives wif his mommie hes 25 and never been kissed. And they would never ever insult someone in real life, as they know that lippy talk will only get them smacked the fuck up.

South Central Idaho...Caught the EBD 20 yrs ago... Bought my first about 6mo. ago....700 in .22-250 is the one I would never give up....300WBY after that one....


ETA .22-250....Left out a 2
Link Posted: 5/22/2005 11:32:56 PM EDT
Monday 23rd 1925 hours

If you are looking to shoot in the nrth island (wellington) where i am, there are a few thousand iraqi and afgani refugees, to choose from plus the numerous boat people, but you would need .50cal which we can not own here. Besides that in the nrth we have red siker, wild pigs/boar, wild goats and a whole lot of rabbits, best thing is no hunting licence and no restrictions you are able to shoot all year around, except ducks but the season is currently open on them too. It just depends on what kind of firearms licence you have.

Hope you have a good trip in NZ, let me know if you are in Wellington will be cheaper than getting a guided hunt, i will take you out the back of my house with my Kbar and .44mag for the pigs.

Cheers
