Flogging a dead horse

Well, as the title says, i'm kinda flogging a dead horse with this one, but at the same time, still relevent. I'm talking about noob hating. There are tonnes of posts (Note, I used Tonnes because i am Canadian) both Pro and Anti-Noob. I myself, am pro noob. I'm all for the noobs. They do the menial, trained monkey work for less. But also, they are the future of videogames, just like teens are the future of our world. Depending on how we treat our noobs, they will affect our games positively or negatively. In my guild, we have a tab full of noob gear. Everyone has access to one item a day, and anyone can take or donate. Other guilds I have been in ignore people until they hit at least level 58. What is everyone elses opinion on noobs, newbs, nubs, n00bs, etc.

Post more, I am a very lonely person and the posts make me feel better. Just kidding, but still, post in and get a discussion going.

I love noobs and helping them. I think in most games part of the noob hate may come from the fact noobs are of little to no use to higher level players because they can't actually join you on a team and learn on the job, so you have to sit and explain things to them or answer questions they tend to ask when you're on your way somewhere or doing something of interest in the gameworld. These brief interuptions when multiplied may be a source of friction.  Could also be a perception of a noob in ur team playing "wrong" and messing up the flow of the team. For example, I think the only time noobs bug me is when they've been powerlvld to some high lvl, join your team, and have no idea how to actually play their character,

In CoX its easy, you sidekick them and they can roll with you on your mishes and you can answer questions in the context of a group dynamic while actually having fun leveling. Me personally I just like seeing their enjoyment of the game and watching them learn as they play their role in completing a mission.

Well you have to start somewhere for sure.  I don't mind the noobs and the questions... I had them when I started too.  Heck I still have questions.  haha.  

It's more annoying for someone to think they know better and get the whole team killed because they are morons and won't take advice!
