I gotta agree on this one,
Newbies (silly word), need encouragement and if you have the time a little training. Who knows this poor noob could end up being your friend and making the servers a nicer place for people to be should be a priority for any civilized person.
Its simply manners, the ones that go around hacking up poor old noobs are probably just kids themselves or 'ubernoobers' who've learnt the fundamentals and are finding ways to exploit the moves in the game.
Simply put why can't folk help one another rather than making a point of being an arsehole all the time!
