THIS HAS 0 RELATION TO AF. Just capping that to avoid any uneeded questions.
Every forum I join nowadays it seems like veteran posters are able to get away with things newer members cannot. For example I've seen a member from Feb 2012 get banned for a simple: shut yo mouth.. and a user from 2005 saying far worse things and avoiding a ban. I can see new users having to respect ones who came before them, its like that usually anywhere but where do you draw the line and whats your opinion on veteran posters getting away with things noobs cannot? Are veteran posters just able to because their opinions can mean more?
