    14) Never insult someone who`s been active in any group longer than you have. You may as well paint a damn target on your back. That`s my favourite one. It`s also one that a lot of Newbies really need to learn.

    Some of you are smart enough to realize that, when you go online, it`s like entering a foreign country ... and you know better than to ignorantly drat with the locals. Hahahaha. That was awesome. *bookmarks page*

    13) The first person who offers to help you is really just trying to screw with you for entertainment. So is the second. And the third. And me.

    5) Oh, you say you`re going to a lawyer? Be prepared for us to giggle with girlish delight, and for your lawyer to laugh in your face after he explains current copyright and parody law Lol Who in the world would try to get a lawyer for something that happened over the internet no lawyer in the right mind would take that case.

    Speaking of which, I think some of the people who are welcomebot should be replaced. I had a friend sign up and welcomebot was very rude and insulting towards her, and I have a strong idea of who it was. :-|

    Oh I dunno, I must be a complete newbie, I thought that was about as funny as cholera. I try and treat people here in a similiar manner to other personal contacts. I have no respect for the `brave on internet`. As far as internet novices having relatively limited knowledge or inteligence, the ignorance of basic general information, paucity of skills in a written discussion and tendency to become irate seems fairly well distributed between oldbies and newbies. The tool that wrote that seems to be oblivious to the fact that there is a contradiction between the reality he claims for the internet and the screen names behind them and then the hateful and cavalier way newbies are treated.

    If someone wants to tell me this is all a great gag and tongue in cheek I will point them to Journals, where you can regularly see the lonely, the scared and the frightened mocked for the idle entertainment of `senior` YTers. There are members who I believe come here pretty much exclusively for the pleasure of baiting the vulnerable, if newbies stopped coming here than their lives would surely be even more empty.

    I like #15: 15) Never get comfortable and arrogant behind your supposed mask of anonymity. Don`t be surprised when your name, address, and home phone number get thrown back in your smug face. Hell, some of us will snail-mail you a printed satellite photograph of your house to drive the point home. Realize that you are powerless if this happens ... it`s all public information, and information is our stock and trade. bwahahahahahaha

    Rufio, mocking people on the internet is in itself not a bad thing, mocking the vulnerable and weak particularly is anywhere. For a woman who seems to think she is some sort of intelectual you consistently show an inanabilty to read and understand the content of posts. I have a life, but thanks for sharing, at least this post of yours was semi coherent.

    That`s even more pathetic. The reason people are weak and vulneale is because no one ever disagreed with them. A good mocking is all come people need.

    Rufio,"The reason people are weak and vulneale is because no one ever disagreed with them" right well thanks for your, as ever, complete and inciteful (spelled correctly) analysis. There is nothing worse than someone who thinks they are really clever when in fact thay are rarely clever, your myopia would be charming if you weren`t so belligerent.

    You will tell us to go to hell, and call us "nerds" and "geeks". Don`t bother ... we already know exactly what we are. Lol. It`s true.
