There was never any mention that this system was to replace our respected values of good information and well thought out posts.
It simply a system of ranking so that members who contribute exeptional content on a regular basis, do not see adds to clutter up their screens, that was the real reason behind it.
Truly it's not that big of a deal, if you don't find yourself to be an "apprentice" then dont' act like one, it's very simple.
It is our job as standing members to educated the new members on the way to forum works and how to take all of this information in, so long as we dont' alienate them with this kind of rhetoric, we should be fine.
