I recently read through a thread (sorry, I can’t, for the life of me, find it) in which someone with a post-count of less than 100 offered advice on searching to someone whose post-count was well over 1,500 (if I remember correctly). It could’ve even been 5,000.
The recipient of this advice shot back something like: “Thank you, I always appreciate advice from experienced posters.” Even without any italics or bolding or smilies, it was clear that this experienced poster’s response was laced with sarcasm and possibly even a bit of snobbery.
So, I got to thinking about post-counts. How long will I be a “newbie”? Do those with low post-counts coupled with a fairly recent “join date” get snubbed by those who have been members for a long time?
I am neither feeling sorry for myself, nor do I wish to offend anyone. I am just wondering…
