I'll tell you what, for a long time I didn't mind dealing with a large group of beginners. I was a member on the Penguin board for quite awhile, but what ended up happening was that I became a reference source for every kid who bought the Sterling S&S set. I made the mistake of sending a few people a couple of basic S&S routines and within a couple weeks I was getting PM'd into the stone age by every newbie in the civilized world... demanding that I send them the routines, and in some cases, demanding that I make up some new ones so they wouldn't be doing the same stuff as the other kids that got my routines!!! Some were quite rude I should add.
That's when I basically made the Cafe my home, and man, what a difference :)
