lately i have been noticing that there have been a lot of new members recently to this board. What do you guys think about new members? do you completely trust them or does it take a few posts to be able to tell?

Depends...some people you get a good vibe from immediately, others you have to feel out.

Eh...people have to build a reputation, just like "real life".

What I don't like is the condescending groups that think they get to select who posts and views the Shroomery.

As you can see, I registered back in June 2001. There was a whole different group of people back then, I forgot most of their names. This is who I remember: Some guy who's avatar was Geordi LaForge, which may have been his username too. A big black guy (was he black?) named Moe who was really funny, geokills (does he still post here?) and that's about all who stands out in my mind right now.

Then after about 8 months or so I stopped coming to the site (I guess because I stopped growing) and I don't recognize hardly anyone. I still see people with older registration dates than me though. But yeah it takes time to build trust in new users :smile:

Moe and Geordi hang out in OTD now. Geokills is still a mod here. I don't think Moe is around as much though, and Geordi's in the second week of a 2-week ban.

Geordi is just got banned for a couple weeks. he'll be back in a few more days.

Moe has started to come back occasionally

Geokills is still an admin.

lol, you can't trust anyone. Ever heard of someone being best friends for 5 years then the friend fucks them over for their desire? I have. Could be women, could be drugs, could be money but its a common occurance in the real world.

Anybody can be anything they want to be. Its an internet message board. Having said that, you can sense consistancy and honesty from many posts but you were talking about newbs.

Of course, if they have a good rating for trading then you can reasonably assume that you can deal OK.

it takes 1000 posts. But the more i see a new guy post the more i get to know who hey are. What they view the world as. Tell you the truth with that said i made some realy cool awesome life friends on here. I only get to see them once in a while but after conversating on and off for five years i feel they know me just as well if not better then people i hang with in my home town.

1000 posts? Damn, it will probably take me another year to get that... :0
I think it's all relative, some folks can talk the talk, but probably ain't walkin' the walk, if you know what I mean. I could probably trust some folks on here, I'm sure alot of y'all are great people and great friends. Of course, everyone here is actually drug-addicted internet nerds surfing in their mom's basement in between PS2 and TRL binges...
:peace:

I don't mind them. I just can't stand the ones you can tell are still high school kiddies with their retarded spelling and grammar skills, and asking dumbass questions. "my friend said you can smoke peanut skins to get high is this true?!?!"

Never trust anyone.
You can assume any identity you want on the net.
If there were narcs, they would be the well established members, that everyone liked.
