I was in a conversation the other night about someone in the hobby who doesn't have a ton of talent. They were cracking on the kid, which is pretty normal. I've done it myself with my e-fed friends about other handlers, but then again, many of those I've cracked on have this in common with the subject of the other night.
They all tried hard and they all had enthusiasm for the hobby.
I mean, is everyone going to be a top-of-the-line promo their first time out? Not really. For some, it takes time. Some are naturals, some are gifted, but we can't always rely on those guys to carry the feds, because they're not a dime a dozen.
What we should do is try to give those who want to learn a hand. Given teh state of e-fedding right now, not everyone is as enthusiastic as some of these rooks and low-carders. If they can be helped and keep their enthusiasm, the hobby will grow.
But it shouldn't be seen as a charity case. Then you get into dangerous territory.
