- In jokes - "there's an error on line 42 of your code" when people
assume anyone who reads posts about stacktraces or "it SEGFAULTS"
without example code it must be psychic?
- Complaining about top-posting or signature quoting?
- A signature that complains about the above?
- A tendency not to make wild assumptions about performance hits for
feature X?
- Generalised rules of thumb that never say never?
- Able to take warnings and error messages seriously ("Sure the compiler
complained a lot, but it was just being silly")

They refer people to the FAQs, have real jobs,
and participate infrequently because they have
side projects that won't get finished if they
spend all their time on these newsgroups. ;-)

Not getting finished on other things beside the newsgroups is a problem
of mine since I began posting here recently. There is always the need to
check for new messages. :)

Never top posts. Never quotes 10 line signatures.

I think true veterans are recognized more by what they don't say rather
than what they do say.

Folks get to a certain point where they are content to just listen, say
very little, and make their few words have immense meaning.
