I read quite a bit here and have chosen not to post much because I have seen the resentment towards students and although for the time being I am learning on my own, I still consider myself a student. I am only learning about much of this and it may be familiar to you, but to others it's like meeting the boyfriend's parents for the first time. Totally different family, you're not sure what is appropriate and what is not, and although you may be excited the uncertainties can be very intimidating.....!
I'm the same way, MrsSaraR!
I'm a student who has been lurking for a long time, didn't make an account until a few months ago, and don't post a whole lot. I'd rather just watch and learn than make myself a bother. I think those that want to learn do by watching before jumping in.
It sucks that the lazy ones make all students look bad, but I can't blame the regulars on AD for getting sick of it.
