So to me, this all boils down to whether or not someone can value your opinion as an experienced player. When the whole thing devolves to the point of you being dubbed "elitist" obviously they could not. Maybe I'm wrong, but thats the way I've intrepreted this thread.
That sounds more like what goes on.
Though I have to admit it hasn't been too bad in the last year or so that airsoft prices have completely tanked.
