Why are some people trippin about the YahooAnswers crowd arriving?

A few on here have expressed concern.

The admins are trying to get people here yet some members are trying to run newbies off.

I have seen this on real small forums where they have like 20 regular posters, they shun new folks. But this forum is not real small and it sure as hell isn't a tight nit community. Look how often people brag about how many blocks they have used.

The only party who gets to decide who is welcome on a forum is the admins.
This is not mine nor anyone else's personal forum. None of us decide who is allowed to be here.

I personally hope that not too many Y!A members arrive because they don't deserve to be treated like intruders. Kind of for the same reason I hope that people I care about never pick up smoking cigarettes.

I don't know what you're talking I only seen people joking about it and having fun with no bad intentions. Personally I welcomed the ones I saw though because I love SW and I want it to grow.

Probably because they want exclusivity. This site needs more people actually.

Precisely.
Oh....i think it's mostly light hearted fun .

There's been a few minor cases of trolling, but really , it's just us being us.

I guess I'm just indifferent towards the whole thing. I'm neutral. I take no issue with new people.

You're wrong, this is my board and I control whom may come! And I welcome all thee! 馃憫

Yahoo was a great community. Sure we had some issue but overall we were good and down to Earth people. Just watch out for anyone with a username like "Sophie", "Toilet John", "Petri Lindroos", and "Wotan". Those guys were the biggest trolls Yahoo ever had.

Cant say I've seen anything particularly bad being said about it. Maybe I have them blocked?

Some think they are the queen/king of this place
I approve this message...especially the part about cigarettes
