Wikipedia:Please bite the newbies

WikiVampires love to feast on the newbies.

Wikipedia always has lots of newcomers that drive you up the wall. We must be extremely hostile to them in order to have them understand the true meaning of Wikipedia.

New members often seem all sweetness and light at first, but most turn out to be vandals and bad-faith editors at the end. Therefore, it is very important to assume bad faith and bite them. Hard.

Definition of a 'newbie'Edit

In general, a newbie is an editor who joined Wikipedia this very moment. However, some say that any Wikipedia member that joined after 2001 is a newbie. Therefore, we must learn to bite each other and even ourselves – even if you have been editing Wikipedia since Jimbo Wales came.
