Hey, I'm pretty new here, less than a year by some months, and I post a lot. I'm one of those older noobes (senior noobe?) that doesn't have a lot
to do, so I'm on often.
I've been smacked around a time or two, but that's the game, it's how we learn to do things the right way. (My friend Lex remembers putting me in
place, I'm sure.
) As was stated earlier, don't be easily hurt. This is a rough and tumble place at times.
But if you're sure you have it right, don't be afraid to defend your viewpoint! Be polite, but you have as much right to have a viewpoint as the
most senior member here. Nobody has a monopoly on the truth. BUT, if you're shown a new way of seeing things, proven wrong, then don't be afraid to
change your mind and switch positions either. That's what learning is.
If someone can show me where I'm wrong on something, then I'm the one who gained the most out of the exchange. That's how we deny ignorance.
Welcome, and have fun.
