Welcome, welcome, good sir or madam, and let the record show that I was about your age when the computer bug took a very-delightful hold of me and has happily-changed my life ever since. Please understand, therefore, that I meant (and mean) no disrespect either to you or to your present age ... which, to me, is “neither here nor there.” You are as much a member of this professional community as is anyone and everyone else who is here or who has ever been here. However, I do feel that I should apologize to you, on behalf of this community, that you happened to stumble upon grown-ups (who should have known better) acting like this in public places. Please excuse us. May it never happen again.
“And now, please, back to your regularly scheduled programming-language. These aren’t the ’droids you’re looking for. Move along... Move along...”
