I know my fair share of DMs who’ve been on the receiving end of players scoping out insider information and dropping the meta-game hammer on their head. Brett is no exception, it seems. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of meta-gaming. It’s called a role-playing game for a reason. If your character is a 1st-level, 19 year-old fighter then play him like one. Odds are the DM will love you for it.
