You almost have 9000 posts now? For some reason I thought you were still around the 6000 level.

newbie just means your new here. a "noob" means you dont know anything, your lack skills, or however you want to look at it. noob is a derogatory term from newbie.

also we were ALL newbies once , expect david, who was always admin

Whenever a new member joins most members drop a line to say welcome, so to think Newbie on the title is offensive is a bit extreme, it can only be offensive if your mind reads it that way, as said by other members it is NOT to discriminate anyone for lack of computer knowledge or anything else.

Never ever ever go to ST at pbnation.com, you will be called a n00b for years because the only respected people are 05'ers and below.

No.



Newbie to the forum, not your computer knowledge.
