    I guess you guys hate newbies

    I don't understand this. I am down to one point before being banned. I have gotten several nasty and rude emails as well as being scolded.

    I'm sorry Chipper, Wheel, and SteelDS if I offended you. The board was dead last night and I was trying to stir conversation.

    A friend recommended this board to me, but this is the most unfriendly board I've ever seen. I guess you guys can go ahead and take away my last point so that when the board owners come into work tommorrow morning they can go ahead and ban me.

    I did get one friendly PM from someone and I really appreciate it. But frankly, the rest of you are pretty rude.

    I suspect that the above emailers were attempting constructive criticism. Too much posting displaces earlier posts to the second and third page, and thus to obscurity.

    I wouldn't sweat it too much. Just post quality instead of quantity and you'll find yourself more welcome than on any other board in the biz. Take my word for it.

    You're not banned.

    You're at negative rep points, but you're not banned.

    People are just trying to tell you to cool it on the bumping up of older threads for no real reason.

    Oaky, so now it's time for everyone to post what everyone is saying to them when they are repped/negged.

    That's great.

    achilles, name calling will not be tolerated here. Consider this a warning. Next time you will be banned. I haven't banned anyone for a while so I got an itchy trigger finger.

    Dude, look--take this for constructive criticism, then: just post responsibly, thoughtfully, or at the very least, humorously, and you'll have no problems.

    Don't upset the "board leaders". They are always right.

    You cannot be banned for reputation points.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
