While I believe that new blood is a good thing and that the
monastery should not be a stagnant fixture, I don't think
that means we have to put up with deliberate rudeness. And
I do disagree with the deletion of the last two posts by the
troll (but I didn't check the anagram).
We don't want to be like the monasteries that were raided
by vikings because we're easy targets. We should be
accepting of those that have something to offer, whether
that is something to teach, or the willingness to learn. If
someone comes in like a troll and then wants to become a
member in good standing, let them reenter under a different
moniker. With the setup as it is, that's easy to do and
will keep people from being prejudiced over old flames.
