actaully I disagree. I had people cop the same attitude in game.

The thing about the date was it didnt make people special. It just gave you a clue they have been around. So if they are really pissed about its probably been brewing for a while or its actually something the devs may have screwed up. I would take that more seriously than someone griping who joined well after FTP is probably an over sugared tween saying X thing sucks. It also help when getting advice on game systems. Someone around since 2010 is probably a more authoritative source than someone from May.

Another example is KDF play. People who joined before a certain date had to level a toon from the get go. So people who have been around know all the changes that have happened over the years.

A corallary would be post count. Like if I see someone has like 12K posts then I know they are a forum monkey and can disregard anything they say
