my two cents - i find the concept of an old timers board offensive . . . the thread seems to imply that OT's aren't that interested in what new people have to add, or that new people are "taking away" from their experience.
i just think that it categorizes further and therefor dilutes support. it's not like this online group is the only way people can connect, if there are only certain people you want to talk to - do a group email or use three way calling.
One idea that is used on Business Weeks' board is that you can choose to ignore posters, and only the people's messages that you self select show up on your screen - that way, one PSB, but individual preferences.
i just think that i have learned so much from both people that have been here a long time apparently and those that just found their way here that i would hate to add another administrative step to things - it's hard enough as it is to keep up on threads.
anyway, that's my take
