True enough, but I've also noticed that those new people who may not have their "age verified" under their nickname, seem to get pigeonholed as know nothing kids despite asking pretty good questions. I haven't been on long, but it took awhile to get verified. After doing my research, I was still leery of asking anything until I had that little box under my name. Assumptions are much too common. Weither it's eventually justified or not.
If a new person asks a stupid question, it should be ignored. No negative response is needed. Some troll the newbie section just looking for an uninformed question to pounce on.
