And then lead them into the nursery.
That sounds trite, but I'm quite serious.
Goodness knows, David, I've done my share of vetting some newcomers - or, at least, trying. Do we really want to "pre-qualify" people to be able to post, though?
I understand your reluctance to hear the same thing time and time again, believe me, but for those newcomers who are very young and experiencing assault from those around them shouldn't we try to accomodate their needs. Sometimes, when things are urgent, I don't have time or the inclination to search through what are mounds and mounds of previous posts to find the one that addresses my questions.
If this or anpother thread is specifically about young people asking their questions, wouldn't it be easy to avoid for those who don't want to relive history time and again?
Also, the comment about the "nursery" did, indeed, sound both trite and like an effort to trivialize the concerns of young posters.
