Ok, my opinion time:
I have been a member of many, many forums over many years. I've been here a very short time and only joined because I've spent $1000+ on Spyderco knives and thought I should check it out. Very disappointing. Friendly...I don't think so. In fact almost, if any, response to a new person post is pretty much non-existent. You want to feel like your invisible, this is the place.
Sorry to hear that this is what you experienced.
Imho really not typical at all though:
Sal welcomes literally each new member (though even he might ocassionally miss one from time to time)
And I know from myself and not to few others that we do so too, when realizing that it is a new member who's posting for the first or so time.
I also tend to give a longer reply than just "welcome" to new member posts, and others do so too.
I also can remember that recently I replied to a reply you gave on a post of mine, concerning how Kapara and Endura compare. We had differing opinions on that, and I think I gave you a detailled reasoning for mine while stilm respecting yours.
So I don't think you are actually "invisible" here...?!
Anyway and again: Sorry to read that you don't feel welcomed and sure hope that will change!
