There are some great ones here and you and I both know who most of them are but there a bunch of new people that fit into this category as well that wont even answer a pm and thet expect to fit in and be treated with respect and be trusted. That will not happen, if you cant answer a pm, you are automatically on the "do not" list. Doesnt matter to me what kind of cards you have either.

Beckett members are some of the kindest, most generous folks we have ever met ..... look at all the freebie threads, look at the good that comes to so many members new and old ..... I don't know what you're reading but if you look through the main forum, there is nothing but great threads about great members imho
Will folks trade with you off the bat ..... probably not, especially if you're looking a mid to high end, sometimes you need to build a reputation before folks will ship their cards 1000 miles away ..... that's just good common sense.
Will traders deal lower end, base rc's, inserts etc ..... yes, there are tons of members here who love to build up their team/player collections ..... heck I send out more $20 trades than $200 trades, and I know about 40 others here that do the same.
Some collectors have been fortunate enough to have amassed some PC's that are simply mind boggling, many of them have been collecting for 15-20 years, so it's easy to see that they may have big $$$ cards and will want to do big $$$ trades ..... that's the same on any forum out there.
My advice ..... spend some time getting to know the membership here before you judge them, find some folks that will trade for what you need, and don't "try to look for the best deal" ..... trade BV to BV, player for player, plain and simple.
Spend some time helping others, interact with them within the main forum and build your relationships and the rest will fall in place.
There are many newbies here who I feel like we've been old friends for years ..... and there are some that may rub me the wrong way ..... it's a public forum, we're not all going to get along, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the best football forum on the world wide web

I always welcome the newbies and I never turn down a deal just because the person is new here. That being said, I don't deal with the "deal grabbers", I collect, I don't deal, and the people I most trade with are the collectors. I find that we are a much nicer buncha hooligans.
