valid point.

i was just struck by those who seemed to see that the poster was new and decided that was a great reason to trash him or her, rather than read the question in that light and be a bit forgiving.

i'm suggesting if we see a new poster phrase a question stupidly, we not trash him or her. if people want this place to be a good place for hockey talk, maybe it's just as much up to us as it is to the noobs.

He's been generally well received because he shows a true interest and excitement in learning the game and isn't trying to do it through flights of fancy or echoiing what he's heard from Felger or KPD.
