To be honest, if you are not a rejoiner you will make mistakes in the first weeks here, especially in the rants. People who have here only 10 posts but are able to own someone or win a fight here are rejoiners and that is fact simply because it is impossible to be new in the rants section and not to be humiliated.
Of course the people who just register here dont get terms like "gotten to", hell, even I acted like a little bitch for every little insult here in the first months because I was new to the rants but I am now a changed man.
I recommend here to every new member to read rants at least for 1 whole month before posting here to save the embarrassment that I and other newbies went through
