    Question was aimed to both directions.

    Well let's see.

    I think I've noticed certain newer members attaching themselves to older members, but definitely not most. Example: Edgar Jack Flak. Aimahn seemed to have been doing that for a bit. There are others I've noticed. I don't know if you would call it deferential though.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    You know, there are doubtlessly a few perfect women here, but they're either married, or hate me, or both. Conclusion? None.

    Well I don't know about those guys, but I agree that it's less of a pattern in that direction than in the other (with older/higher post count members ignoring lower post count ones).

    Submissiveness does not automatically imply deference to intelligence or subject material. It is more likely a behavioral thing associated to perceived position of the person, and the social ramifications of not deferring to long timers.

    I don't believe that the heuristic or the behavior is faulty, either. Forums have plenty of "clan" behavior. The more entrenched posters use that kind of influence as a tool, like most social power is wielded, the opposite of newer/less active posters avoiding being at the other end of 'stick'.

    I tried to attach myself to bluemonday but her tongue is too sharp.

    As is yours proteanmix, maybe it's just older women
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    If we all gave just as much weight and time paying attention to noobs as we do to the posters we already like and know, that would probably be an unwise use of time, but maybe not for everyone.

    After a noob spends a little time here and forges an identity, that's when people will start to communicate more with said noob. That's how I think it should be.

    Yeah protean dunno wtf she's talkin' about re: me and folks like Edgar. It doesn't matter to me how long a person's been on the board, and why should it? People possess the same quality whether they started day one or yesterday.
