I agree with most of what has been said here so I won't waste another post quoting and repeating what has already been said. However, as staff myself and having been a member for almost 3 years, what I can say is, while life may not be equal opportunity, the Z is. We all start with a post count of 0 from day one and as with most things, the forum is what you make of it and you get out of it what you put into it. Everyone is encouraged, even through some harmless joking, to participate and stay active. Never know when you'll be the one needing help or, even better, when you'll be the one offering help to someone else.
