Forum double standard.

Imagine how awful these forums would be, if every time a newbie turned up and made a thread, the veterans descended on it with cries of "This doesn't affect me personally, so shut your whining!"

    Imagine how awful these forums would be:

    - If veterans called other anonymous players derogatory names and not want to play against them due to their game status.

    - If veterans made demeaning, condescending comments about how others did their job, offering simplistic, sarcastic solutions to complex issues.

    - If veterans made insinuating comments about how people would lose their jobs if the veterans were in charge.

    - If veterans threatened boycotts, bad ratings, and withholding cash purchases every time a bug or questionable implementation was introduced.

    Imagine if this same forum was just  about a game...

    Imagine if a business did its job poorly and received bad reviews because it did its job poorly.

    Imagine if those bad reviews led to fewer customers for that business.

    Imagine if fewer customers led to lower revenue for that business.

    Imagine if lower revenue led to the closure of that business.

    Imagine if a game was run by and operated by that business.
