    You'll always look both ways again, but not all education is good.

    Hit the nail on the head with this one.

    i think a lot of the old members have to realize things are probably going to get worse. bugeyes are the new civic. we are going to have even more young kids come on looking for help & advice. their posts might make you want to pull your hair out and scream but we have to be nice to them & lead them in the right direction. (take out your frustrations in the facebook group- not here) lol

    Plus kids now are entitled so if we give them a hard time they will flip out and go cry. So I get it.

    Newb Bashing Thread (older members please read)

    When I first started out I just slapped on a DP, BOV, and intake with no tune and i posted about racing people. Here I am. Years later and still on the forum and yes people gave me a hard time about. I do get what you say thought but I don't try to bash anyone. Most of the time I try to help but my post gets over shadowed by some of the bashing.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    Since it was brought up:

    This is based on the assumption that this still happens in chat, because frankly I don't go in there much at all anymore, but the older members should also be mindful to direct newbs who come in chat with technical questions to post a thread. Kevin is totally right, clubdub is not a labor of love anymore and we should be cognizant of keeping post traffic up to appease our new robot overlords.

    Good points all around. Title is a little misleading though

    I'm not the newbiest newb on this thread, but I definitely am guilty of saying "STFU newb" recently. Thanks for keeping us all on track. A stern talking to is just what we need sometimes.
