That would work, but for the small percentage of the people that are insecure about it, it's not worth it. If you can't have a little fun and laugh at the title....

I honestly have not seen a single person have a problem with that title except the dude who made this thread. I mean come on, I was a noob for like 2 hours. It is so easy to get rid of the title if you don't like it.
