I'm fed up of the age of your account being a reason for abuse.

So wait a second, you put a thread telling older members to be nicer to new members in the new member section? I agree with what you're saying but it's not going to do much good here.

If then newbs deserve to be flamed, by all means do so. But random flaming simply because someone new is unnecessary. Actually I don't really care for the most part. So whatever. If it makes someone feel prestigious if they flame some random guy over the internet, then there's something wrong with them. have a nice day.

*chuckles softly*

Members who flame "newbies" flame them for a reason. Some immature twats flame them simply because of their join date, however, September '06 was the worst month for spammers/b.s. accounts/children joining. October '06 is off to the same start. I rarely see anyone say "OMG SEPTEMBER 06ER KILL HIM" unless he or she is actually doing something wrong.

Also, if a new member is a good member, if they submit tabs and reviews, if they make somewhat intelligent posts, and if they just try to be a nice person, no one will descriminate by join date, because they won't have a reason to.
