Just 10 minutes ago somebody saw my trimmed fletch cape and said "lol is ur other 99 cooking". Well, the "lol" made me think it was a derogatory comment so I didn't bother to answer. The guy then typed "?" no fewer than 12 times and then said, "I'll take that as yes". Then a nice fellow told him it was firemaking. I told the nice guy thanks and the other said "lol for wat" I said for not being an [wagon] and then he logged off.
But yeah I remember being level 116 with No skill cape and a kid with untrimmed FM laughing at me (like level 85 or w/e). I had like 85 slayer at the time, which is more effort/time then a cook and fm cape combined.
I think it's pretty obvious that whichever party is being the jackass is the one who's in the wrong. None of this crap is worth gloating over.
Regardless of whether you consider a fletching cape to be a lesser achievement than a ranged cape, or what you perceive the wearer's motives for attaining the cape to be, it's clear that no skillcape is "n00by." That's just a stupid claim to make, and I don't think anyone here honestly believes it. Players aren't n00bs because of their equipment or their skill levels, and anyone who thinks such is, quite frankly, a n00b.
