    Default Elitism breeds a healthy community.

    Face it. SOMEONE has to be on top. SOMEONE has to be #1. You don't get to be #1 by picking up any ole keyboard turner off the street. You gotta have standards. You gotta have goals. You gotta have drive.

    Not everyone fits in that criteria.

    There's way too much anti-elitism goin' on around here when it's a simple fact of nature. The bold will outshine the meek. The strong will pummel the weak. The united will conquer the divided. As the saying goes, "Lead, follow or get out of the way." I'm not saying that anyone who doesn't have an elitist attitude is inferior. Far from it.

    If I could be an elitist, I would be.

    The simple fact of the matter is I don't have the dedication or time to devote to such endeavors. But I certainly don't criticize or discourage those that do and chose to. There's more than enough room in this game to satisfy both elitists' and casuals' alike. Why can't people just be happy with that?

    People can be on top and not be bungholes about it
    People can be rich and still help the poor
    People can be smart and still teach
    Elitism does NOT breed a health community

    elitism is fine... the word elite means extraordinarily good... however, elitest jerks are annoying and a scourge on the community...

    Perhaps we can keep these elitist from breeding all togeather by padlocking their basement door and cutting off the supply of hotpockets and dew.

    Elite isn't the same thing as elitist.
