I was a newbie once... now look at me: Tall, handsome, brooding in a dark room, listening to Opera... *gargles*

No being serious, you are a newbie for like 50 posts. It is seriously nothing that bad. It means you are new to the forums, which you are, and that you have a long way ahead of you, and tha long way will be filled with great times. Seriously, just post normally and you will get your Junior Member in no time.

Everyone is a newbie once they register at CF, On the other hand- welcome to the CF and grow up, crying about a forum title which goes away after 50 or so posts, which isn't much, give me a break

I don't think it offensive. It's the internet, get over it.
