New to /who/.

"Beware the beast Newfag, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he shitposts for sport or lust or egotism. Yea, he will claim to posses great knowledge of a subject or community that he knows nothing of. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his forum and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his subreddit, for he is the harbinger of death."

Newfags (Nubius Whovian) are a intermediate breed of Doctor Who fans, who have an interest in the show who have not yet earned the right to call themselves fans, they have the t-shirts and the mugs, they hang the exploding TARDIS painting on their wall, but inside, they are not Who fans, they may even have girlfriends, or use deodorant . Like lepers, it is unfair to persecute these people, yet you recognize the dangers of going near them and letting them infect you.

If you are a newfag, it is not the end, it is important to recognize your disability and to act on it, by lurking, learning the ins and outs of the community, and gaining knowledge on Doctor Who before engaging in any kind of critical discussion.
