I just haven't ever noticed it.

Where I let this come into play was when I was new to the site: first online messageboard that I really had ever seen.

If someone gave me info, I was more likely to check elsewhere to verify if it was their first post or whatnot, as opposed to someone with over 1,000 posts.

Believe me, I also double checked those with multiple posts (and found that some with mult posts gave the most worthless answers!) but usually found that they had more reliable advice overall.
