    Actually, I can't say that. It all depends on who you consider a veteran, which is exactly what this thread is about, so clearly the definition is not set...

    When they move from being optimistic about the development's progress and positively social towards the community, to outwardly depressing and vicious towards any soul that expresses an opinion.

    Cynicism and Elitism is what seperates a newbie from an old-timer.

    They know the difference between a "sweet" pickle and a "Buddy" pickle, and they don't use the terms "silencer or "clip"

    Not only do they know not to use those terms, they instantly denounce anybody who does.

    "clip" is a correct term for normal box magazines and "silencer" is a correct term for suppressors, suppresors can be flash suppressors or sound suppressors. Silencer's more 'spaz-ific'
