There are only a select few that feel the way your describing, It certainly isn't the majority of the people that post here.
New members are sometimes looked upon with scrutiny, this is because of the nature of the site and what these members have shown us. This I feel a
majority of the time leads to a fruitful and rewarding relationship between the members that are new and those that have been here for a long time.
Some members that join up seem to want to post hoxes and those get found out quickly and are discredited for it. Often though the origional member
that posted the hoax is not banned for the infraction but probably in private they are reminded what this site is here for and what we as members
This being a user content run site, (that means you all make this site not just the admins) are responsible for what you post.
What you see is what you get. Some people have cliqued together and joined into groups. These groups go through parts of the site the group has
experience in and expertise to share. Most of the time they are not malicious. If you post in a responsible way they will treat you with respect and
courtacy. Those that do not often won't be here for long.
This is why this board is run so well. The administration of this board truly cares about the content that goes on this site and the way that members
adress each other. This post while I am adressing another poster's remarks. I am debunking the remarks made. However I feel that the poster that I am
replying to has the right to remark the way they have and so I will not go after the poster themselves.
Why? Because the poster themselves should not be attacked. The post that they made however is fair game. I do not agree with the post made. However
the poster is in fact a valid member and should be regarded as such. And as a valid member should be given the respect we all would wish for.
Yes within this site runs groups belonging to different ideologies. Some of which we have no experiences in. For myself the automotive forum and the
wepons forums are largely beyond my understanding so I generally do not post in those forums.
Heck you could say the same for title holders. The ones that have Fighter titles are obviously a clique. Those that hold this title contribute or have
contributed to the forums specificaly marked for them. The same goes for writers and scholars. These specific titles in themselves show that this
member is a part of a spacific group on this forum site.
That does not exclude people from joining these groups. They just have to contribute to the forum in order to hold the title.
Clique? yes they do exist on this site, However what I have found is that nearly everyone has some sort of input that is valuable to the various
discussions and that their opinion counts as much as anyone elses does.
