True or False?

Number of forum posts + responses to those posts > value and relevance of poster's outdoor experience

Food for thought, not food for trolls

False, by the way.  There's plenty of new posters who garner respect.  Most don't start out with a series of whiney complaints over nothing though.  Just FYI.

Glad to help.

There is no reason while a new poster couldn't establish credibility very quickly.

Hanging around, getting the feel for the active participants and being friendly goes a long way also.

If you are referencing how you've been treated I'm afraid the 2002 join date is setting off a lot of folks **** detectors. There is a long history of sock puppetry here so it isn't an irrational skepticism.

Actually, it looks like the forum software can't tell the difference between waterdog and waterdog57 who made a total of two posts, several years ago.

So not only is he a troll, he's also a newb.
