If you argue about a "double die" at fatuous length when it's clear you don't know what one really is, you will look like the kid with soot all over him insisting he didn't really dig around in the fireplace.

Don't be that kid.

Your entire post is AWESOME JKK!! But, your last sentence I quoted above is so true and made me laugh out loud😂. Excellently well put in its entirety and thank you for spending your valuable VOLUNTEERED TIME AND EXPERTISE in composing that educational post and really getting to the point. Not to say that newcomers to this great hobby will still need guidance, and the advice, and the professional educational input of the veterans on this site but, your well written detailed outline should really help narrow down some of the confusion while possibly shortening  the learning curve of newcomers (especially to NOT argue with the pros here on the forum!!!). Great job!!!👍

Is it just me...or did the activity in the NEWBIE section increase a ton in recent weeks/months ? 

Maybe I never focused on it before, but I would see threads falling down from lack of activity and just aging with no new posts....now, I see tons of New Threads started and lots of activity and posts on them.

Maybe an NGC Mod can chime in or a veteran poster and watcher of the Newbie section.

I think it's increased. There have been some adverse side effects, but I think they come with the territory.

I think there might be more positive explanations, even if we do get some people who are basically e-herpes outbreaks. It could be, for example, that the effort most of you put forth helping new posters encourages others. Not sure how others decide which forums to join, but I usually look one over pretty well for a little bit. The average, hopeful, sane, realistic enthusiast would find that other hopeful, sane, realistic enthusiasts find warm welcomes and educational guidance. Not from everyone, of course, but those aren't needed from everyone--just enough to help them understand their coins.

I was keeping track of these so called 'nubies' who would post once or twice, mostly belligerent, but when it exceeded more in two months than CU had in five years I gave up.  Two guys we all know.  One thought he would assume command of this forum and another, long termer, was badly treated by some Veteran Members here of the Forum.  You can change the name but you can't change the style.

See Cheap MUT 22 Coins post

I haven't seen that. It might be in one of the forums I don't follow (which is most of them).

Either I'm going blind, or there is no thread or user implying "cheap MUT 22 coins" in there, at least not on the first two pages of threads. I know it's not someone I have on ignore because I still see all their threads (unfortunately).

Sorry.  I know why it got the 'poof'.  It was SPAM and Just Bob called it out and I believe he and I reported it as SPAM.  Sorry for that.

If you want admin action, this is not the place to seek it. For that, you need to report the post and explain why. The admins will review it and decide if any action is warranted.
