Shockingly, among those on this thread I am the oldest in CGC-board years, though not posting quantity and certainly not comic knowledge,...unless someone had to re-boot their username back in 2013 (jsilverjanet?)

Hmmm...

Not referring to anyone in specific but...

You don't have to be a rude know it all blowhard when dealing with new members on these boards.  If you don't want to take the time to answer questions then don't, its that simple.

Respect on a chat board?  That and 2 bits will buy you a cup of coffee (oops not anymore!)

There are a lot of subjects here that people diametrically disagree with like pressing and even slabbing books!  All this on a slabbing companies boards!

I thought this was a hobby but it seems more like a competition.

The ebay boards were worse. The same 10 people bickering constantly.

That's cool. 

In a grass roots society, or a native American society, 

that would hold a position of great honor. 

I think you should be called Chief or something

So you don't want to see pics of me at the horse rescue, cider house brewery, and then wine tasting from Saturday while on the North Fork the other day? 

I will be heading back to Fire Island in a week or two... 

I want to see pics of you at the horse rescue.  #MAKEITHAPPEN

I posted them on instagram.  I once accidentally posted pics of myself here on NYE.  I promptly deleted them for the betterment of the boards.

you said these boards often feel like a competition (competitions are often negative connotations) instead of a hobby (conversely "just a hobby' is often a positive connotation) . You mentioned you don't have to be a rude blow hard in answering a noobs noobie questions but I guess rude blow hards really have no choice in being rude blowhards. so I suppose that's impossibe. I'm sometimes amazed that CGC deems these boards worth their time, expenditure and money. I fully expect CGC to throw in the towel any second now just from the pure hassle of it all. When this does go down I wonder what's gonna happen to these kind guys that are extra rude to newcomers, how are they gonna spend their years of accumulating all-important internet points? Probably stand around the Dollar Store screaming about someone with12 items in the 10 item check line. Anything to feel important. 

Does that clear up my views for ya?
