You senior members and your pointing out how a newbie is not a smart as you is really annoying. Of course they are not as smart as you, they are newbies. Can we politely suggest more appropriate words rather than essentially call someone stupid?
Good statement. We shouldn't be taking comments we see in here personally. People have their own styles and we shouldn't attack them if they think different than we do. More than anything we should try to have fun while exchanging information.

I have co-workers that are from the North East USA and they call bullets, "heads". At first it drove me nutz. Damn Yankees and their vernacular! I have come to accept they are just repeating the terminology they were taught. I guess I have mellowed in my old age.
