Okay, everybody who just discovered this newsgroup three weeks ago:

Your bus is leaving.  Please leave in an orderly manner.  Thanks.

It would help if you could give us a list of all people who are allowed on
your newsgroup.

Oh, please.  I make no apologies for disliking the posts of people who don't
know anything about skating and don't care to learn.  My opinion:  they should
go away now.

Oh, I think Skaternum was just being a bit sarcastic, which is allowed.  As
someone who's been here a while, I have a few observations about the influx of
newbies:

1.  There are some insightful people who would add a lot to the year-round
discourse.  I hope they stay.

2.  There are some trolls who come here to disrupt.  I've got them in my
killfile already, so they can leave or not, I don't care.

3.  The sheer volume of posts is overwhelming, and I look forward to seeing a
more manageable situation soon.  That may have been part of what motivated
Skaternum to post in the first place.

4.  Despite #3, it's been entertaining and enlightening, which is why most of
us are here.

And therefore, why not just insult and annoy the people that *have* come here
to learn at the same time, right?

Rather than being so rude, why not just invest in a decent killfile and use it
judiciously? I've only been here a week and have already picked out the trolls
and filed them accordingly.

Trolls are going to be a part of any newsgroup, and events in the real world
are always going to exist that draw people to certain groups. Some of them
read the FAQ, ask appropriate questions and become positive members of the
group. Some are boneheads with the sole intent to***people off. That's
Usenet, and it's never going to change. Rather than stress yourself and come
off as offensive and bossy to newbies to the group, why not just proactively
killfile those you don't like and use your wisdom and experience to assist
those that have the potential to positively enhance the discussion?

It's like all the other newsgroups out there.  If you show up in the
alt.tv.law-and-order newsgroup, and you've been watching the show for a while
and you wanted to ask a question about the most recent episode, then people
are happy to talk to you.  If you've never seen the show, just a few
commercials, and you just jump in to announce that the new L&O "babe" is a
raggedy-ass skank compared to Angie Harmon, folks will be happy to see the
last of you.  (For the record, I think Elizabeth Rohm is a lovely woman.)
