anyone who thinks writers are the only one with this issue... this is a life issue. I remember being the new kid in school and the way to make friends with people is to NOT FLING SHIT AT THEM but get to know them, knowing the ones who had been there since kindergarten were the ones who knew more than me. this is no different but it's on the internet so it doesn't count? wuhevs.
you don't assimilate yourself with people by shitting on them. if they're shitting on you, maybe you did something to cause that to happen. accept responsibility that you did it wrong. and if you didn't do anything but say hello and they shit on you, maybe they're not a group you need to be around OR you're not ready for a bunch of personalities that are stronger than yours. that's all i'm saying with new people coming to this forum. there is no welcome wagon here. watch what we do, get to know us first. give us more than a day.
AND NO we're not "better than you" because we were here first, we're just here first and we know each other. when outsider/new people come in with hella attitude and then get mad that we're not more welcoming ... man, FUCK THAT SHIT.
