Just joined the forum

Almost posted in the thread that led me here (from a Google search), but I have no idea if an intro is required, or where to do it. So I am asking here.

Skimmed the FAQ, looked for intro threads, failed to find the info, so here we go.

I'm not sure of all the rules, but since I am a model poster in matter of civility, backing my crap up with sources, and I don't curse or argue much, I figure the worst that can happen is this thread.

I await some sort of guidance before jumping in with both feet firmly planted on the ground. (that is a joke) (It just isn't that funny)

I also like to be ironic, satirical and of course suffer from a bad case of SIWOTI

(I know I can't post urls yet but here is the source anyway)

xkcd. com/386

And I am not a spammer nor do I have an agenda. I just love forums and discussing several issues, which are mostly not political.

OK that's it. Let the chips fall where they may. I am all in.

By all means, jump in!

And comment in the thread that brought you here. That''s how I got my start. A Google search led me here. And I haven't found a good enough reason to leave yet.

Re: Just joined the forum

Thanks. Rather than just start in, I now decided to read all previous threads (parts of the current topic) to see what has been posted and discussed first.

Since it started 03-27-06, and there are only around 8000 posts, it shouldn't take long.

Thanks everyone. Life got complicated and busy right after I started reading, but no worries. The really important things usually take time.

Ha! I can't even quote a post with an url in it.

I want to say it's 10 posts before URL, but it might be 50. It's definitely 10 posts before you can PM people.

Re: Just joined the forum

I refuse to pad my post count with mindless fluff.

Just in case anyone wanted to know this.

Also, I've been to Dollywood four times since I joined the forum.





















I'm not kidding.

I have no interest in anything but just one thread.

No wait.

You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 30 posts or more.
Damn it

Welcome - tell a friend, no 5, no 10.....Lunch on me tomorrow.

I think you'll find a decent range of different personalities here.

Just start posting and stick around.
