methinks you be too easily annoyed by a generic, commonly 
accepted term that simply defines a short termer in an organization 
(used in many other areas and groups)  ... would you perhaps prefer 
"post-mundane neophyte" (g w/fangs)

... self was a pre-Aneteorran SCAdian newbie once (long ago 
and far away) ... and later graduated to "erisian / keltoi / mongol / 
biker scum".  have met *many* similar newbies over the years, 
funny that they seem to be so invisible these day's 


note, i *not* PC (including it's subset, SC) or PC-sensitive and make 
no apologies for that situation ... total waste of energies
