Couldn't agree more. The traffic would be fine. Besides, traffic alone does not a quality forum make. If it did this thread and topic would never pop up.

There is no statiscal data supporting this claim. In fact, there is data to suggest otherwise. Look at the forum traffic before the the introduction of the 5D. Pretty robust if memory serves.

Now that DPR has moderators, they can keep out the doofus' wishing to pick fights with the advanced users.

I'm guessing you're not really talking about photographers in this scenario. I personally would not appreciate a short timer in need of a power fix kicking me out of any forum on this site because I didn't agree with someone that felt they were an advanced user beyond reproach. Anyway, that advanced user versus doofus concept gave me a chuckle.

I'd just like to comment on a couple of misconceptions you appear to have.

1. Moderators are here to police the forum rules. If you obey the rules you will not be given a "short timer". If, however, you break the rules, then your knowledge is irrelevant. And, if you are a long time member, then moderators are less likely to cut you some slack as you should know better.

2. The period of time you have been a member here does not mean your opinions are any more valid than anyone else's, nor does it mean you are in any way superior. The subtle suggestion that this might be the case simply adds further weight to the calls of elitism.

Now, point that gun away from your foot!

So you won't mind then if, in your day job, some spotty faced teenager with little experience gets the senior post that you already have or have had your eye on?! Because of course seniority and/or how long you have been around count for nothing right?
