Being a newbie ... it sucks

I have to post messages to #Wikipedias. I am doing this with my Wikimedia Foundation profile and I am not happy. I am treated as if I am stupid. I cannot add new topics to discussion pages, I can not even edit the discussion pages I need.

There is a very easy solution for me; I can ask for global sysop rights as I am "staff" however, that is cheating. It is more fun to start yelling because the restrictions on newbies are so ... off-putting.

What is the point of not allowing to enter new topics ... It is stupid!
What is the point of not allowing to edit a discussion page ... It is stupid!

Guess what I would be doing if I did not make a career out of it? I would walk not to return.
Thanks,
