I don't know what it is, but I used to be really intimidated by 'Expert Level's, y'know. Hell I still am and I'm level 9. I look at my posts and think 'Woah, I wish I could be that guy!'

Nah, not really. There are a lot of people who I see posting again and again who I think are just not that bright. When their answers are not well-thought out or when they don't seem genuinely interested in giving advise but rather in being preachy or critical others, I guess I just assume that they're looking for attention and don't have much of a life in the real world.
But then there are people like, for example, you (thanks for responding to a couple of my questions, btw!) and seifishstars whose names I recognize and whose answers I think are sincere and well-thought-out and I guess since I see you guys often enough I suppose that I can kind of get a taste for the kinds of people/answerers you are. And with people who I keep running into and who I've developed a sort of respect for, I guess I kind of feel some sort of kinship with them (I know that sounds dorky!) that has nothing to do with how many questions a person's answered and everything to do with a person's disposition and worldview. But then again I feel like I've been in so many situations in my life where I've been intimidated by people (I used to be PAINFULLY shy) that I guess I've kind of built up an immunity to it by now. Plus it helps that it's online, so there's a degree of anonymity and comfort in that.0
