Apologies, It's not an excuse but I can say my bitchiness this morning was partly due to it being 'that time of the month', which I didn't discover until after I logged out, and I also have a fair bit of stuff going on right now in my life. No harm intended.
Also, I never really thought of "noob" as being a put down, and just discovered today that it was. In my world someone only being a new poster does not equate with knowing nothing, unless their posts suggest a consistent level of unbearable ignorance.
I'm fairly new to the Internet, so I didn't really get the meaning behind the word, and that's why I couldn't work out why you would take it as an insult.
