    Many excellent titled dogs came from untitled parents. Super Powder and Esprit's Out of the Woods are a few that come to mind of the not so distant past. Just because they're an NFC or NAFC doesn't mean they're going to produce great offspring.

    Your not a noob. You have a senior title on one of your dogs. Heck around here that makes you an expert.

    I thought you reserved that title for the guy who started the other forum?

    I've always wondered if a lack of sunlight could cause "more interesting" topics.....might just be true.

    The difficult part of analyzing the OP's intro is deciding whether it is satirical (or not). In searching for an explanation which might describe those perceptions, the only thing I could come up was this......Venting is good for the "mole".

    For clarity in perceptions a visual seemed reasonable.

    A lot of pseudo intellectualism. I'm a newb and follow the posters comments that talk down to people. It's always the same ones. Hey...at least they're consistent.

    This!! treating newbs like newbs is not an exclusivity of RTF. Go read the comments section of a news piece regarding a controversial issue. the interwebs rule!

    My experience has been the opposite of yours. I'm a newbie on this board and I've gotten nothing but helpful suggestions to my questions. Here is what I've learned after watching this board for a few months.

    1. Contrary to what people say, there are in fact dumb questions. And dumb questions often elicit harsh responses.

    2. Using the Search function can save a lot of time and helps newbies from asking questions that been discussed in detail in earlier threads.

    3. Questions about training usually bring lots of helpful advice (but see 1 above). Non-training questions, such as those about silver labs, judges at tests, the effect of pro trainers on hunt tests, etc, are the topics that tend to bring out emotions and harsh comments.

    4. Most people don't know the difference between: your/you're, there/their, or to/too.
