Why vote down a comment from someone because they’re “new here.” Why is being new bad? Were you, at one time, not new as well? There was a time when I had seen no vlogbrothers videos. Nerdfighteria isn’t a place where, if you don’t get the inside jokes, then you don’t belong. The inside jokes are rewarding to long-time viewers…and there’s something special about people who are dedicated enough to have watched through the entire catalog of Vlogbrothers videos, but just remember that, at one time, you had had no idea wtf was going on as well. And then you did, and that was great, so don’t hate on other folks for being at that first step…how would you have felt?
[to be clear here, when I say “you”, I don’t mean “you” I mean whoever voted down that comment]
