Mostly, I don't have the time to talk to these people.  I am busy enough as
it is (when I am logged on).  Why should I take time out to talk to
everyone that logs on and claims to be an admin/whatever elsewhere?

Plus the fact that I am rarely ever even visible to players anyway :)
Mostly if I do end up putting someone in the fluffy domain or talking to
someone about a specific thing it will be because someone else has
recomended this to me and already done all the preliminary checking.
