I see much dislike for them on GD. Everyone was a newbie here in the past. Should we not be accepting to all those that come in here?? Can't we just all get along???

I agree... the "new guy" bashing should absolutely cease and desist on 1 January.

But I just want that to further fuck with the damn 13'ers.

Just do a search for the 87 other threads asking this same question, for the answer.

I'm not racist against 13'rs. But I would guess the attitude against them can be traced to the same lobe of the brain that houses hatred towards "Boots" in the military.

Some of the best Arfcomers I know are 13ers. Then again, most of the worst Arfcomers I know are also 13ers.

Because the posts from people of my generation are full of derp... Not all of us, but quite a god damn few.

and for all the 13ers hoping this will go away when it's 2014 you're wrong. You will have to wait for a new presidential election and gun control scare to bring in a new crop of even more silly people Probably shortly after hillary becomes our next president, 17ers

I have resigned myself to the idea that I am going to be a 13er from now until alteast 2025. I joined before the shootings and the election, and have owned ARs since I was young teen, but ohh well.

2014 will likely be a better class than most in 2013, the year of panic and disarray.

I've been labeled a 13'er. Truth be told I forget my old password to my old account and what email it was tied to so I started a new account up. People slammed me before for being libertarian, now they slam me for being a 13'er. If this place weren't so entertaining the assholes would have chased me off long ago.......probably a matter of time and they will though

It is told,

On the minute of 12:01, on the first of January, in the year of our Arfcom two thousand and fourteen, a man of great wisdom shall appear with a post count of one; and he shall call to the heavens and Earth, and to GD;

"Behold!, GD, for I offer you salvation! I am of leopards and fives! I am the _A and the TSX. I have supped upon the holy wine of Dura, and EXPerienced the eighty seven maidens of my day. I am the one who settles the quarrels of vagrants!

Brothers of the year of thirteen, repent! And be silent! And salvation shall be yours!"

And he will be spat upon and called Familiar, and he will be shunned, and GD will forever plunge into darkness.

The 13'ers are a mix of kids too young to own guns, 4chaners, conspiracy theorists, and panic buyers.

GD is so big that it's now just another anonymous message board to which you can stand on your soap box and make yourself heard. That appeals to many of the personality types mentioned above.

This site is still nothing less than awesome. GD is a containment board, if you don't like it then I suggest enjoying the site for the wealth of information and sense of community that the other boards contain.

EDIT: take a look at the avatar in the poster above me and tell me I'm wrong
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 9:09:50 AM EST
I came to GD quite awhile ago for the lulz and got hooked. Finally decided to join and will soon get a paid membership. I knew the 13'er hate coming in, but fuck it. I decided to to hang out right in the belly of the beast... right here in GD.




That being said.. I do understand the ALOT of the hate is legit. I cringe at some of the shit some of these guys post.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 9:12:39 AM EST
We should be accepting of everyone except people who joined in Nov/Dec '12 and all of '13.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 9:13:44 AM EST
Because Arfcom is a haven for trendyiness and "everybody" is desperate to show how with it they are. Hence the piling on, the buzz words, the hero worship for whoever can be the most obnoxious in GD, "rules", and don't forget the secret handshake. Right now the trend is to be unwelcoming to new members. Get with the program.
Be cool or be cast out.

Has anyone considered that the majority of the dumbass threads came from '13 accounts because trolls make shitloads of accounts all in a short span all in the same year for the purpose of acting like a jackass?

Or would that make too much sense?

A 13er will always be a 13er. ESPECIALLY THE ONES with a join date of December 2012 - March 2013. Many shill accounts created in that time, as well as stupid questions and opinions.

Basically, if you are a 13er, it would probably be easier to just cancel your account, walk away, and rejoin on 1/2014 than it would be to overcome the collective derp dropped by 99% of them after sandy hook....

This.

Right after Sandy Hook a tard wave gobbled up nearly every available AR on earth. Then they started signing up here because they didn't know what they were doing with their new extremely overpriced hobby. Then, instead of digging through older threads in the tech forums like most of the rest of us did, they started posting threads asking about the shiny flip thing and the pokey thingamajig that goes snap. It was facepalm city for months and months. Happily most of them have either forgotten about their knee jerk hobby and disappeared or embraced it enough to post up some cool topics and discussion. One 13'er from CO posts vids of himself annihilating shit with his .50BMG.

Seriously though, look at what the people with "2013" on their profile say. They acknowledge the idiots among them and understand the stigma will go away when the mouth breathers cease posting or get banned. We picked up many good members this year and we just have to burn the chaff.

This.
Because of the election results, Sandy hook and many other factors we got a lot of folks in the class of 13 that normally would not be here. Grouped by year 13 seems to have a larger percentage of tin foil wearing, gold fringe and 88 fuckers than other years.
14 should be a better year

The site had an influx of members in late 2012 and early 2013 due to Sandy Hook.

Those members brought an influx of EE feedback threads and stupid GD threads with them.

Much of the derision is well earned.
