<<IMFO* the snide tone I see directed toward newbies by certain regulars on this board is unwarranted. >>

Well, chris319 (a registered fool since May 2000), maybe the regulars are exasperated by the newbies coming to the advanced board and a) asking basic questions that are of a level appropriate for the non-advanced board (i.e., Foolish Workshop), b) not bothering to click and read the FAQ link prominantly displayed at the top of the page, and hence c) wasting our time. Oh, yes---and asking questions that have been asked and answered about once a month for the last two years.

So, you think you should be able to just walk up to Tiger Woods and Ernie Els while they are working and ask them newbie questions like "what's a birdie?", and they should drop what they're doing and attend to your every desire and whim?

Sure baby, anything to please you.
