Greetings, nice to be here
« on: May 05, 2012, 10:53:38 PM »
Hey everybody, I used to be a message board junky before the dawn of the social media age. Nowadays, they almost seem like a dying breed. I saw Ace of Spades link here, so I thought I'd give it a shot. What do you post in here anyway? A short intro?

 I'm a 27 year old aspiring (and thus far failing) writer from close to Chicago, but don't get the wrong idea! Heh, it isn't easy being part of my generation in this area. I'm looking to get involved in the discussions, and hope I don't tick people off right away with the fact I love  Devil's Advocate arguments. Otherwise, I'm a pretty relaxed guy. I'd just like to make some e-friends, have some nice convos and learn more. That's important to me, always learning.

 
 Talk to you guys soon!

I requested that our forum be mentioned on AoS tonight and apparently my wish was granted.

Thanks for responding and I hope that you enjoy the forum. BTW, what do you write about?

This was the mention at AoS:

Trapeze wanted me to link to this forum he participates in called It's About Liberty. There are forum threads on topics such as the 2nd Amendment, Media Bias, Economy, World Affairs, Immigration, Science, Sports and more! It seems to cover any issue that might interest you.

In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

A writer, huh? Well jump in a write somethin. Don't have to spell good, or use that over-rated King's English crap. You can use all caps if you like (with permission from, well, you will find out soon enough). But you do have to read this:

Then you will see why . . .

Anybody ever notice that after an initial post by a newbie on these type threads, the rest of the posts are from us?   ::whatgives::

Seems to go that way more often than not. At least we know they're not bots.

Ever occur to you that you guys are scary as hell?

One needn't sign up to read commentary.
So, they come and read, are interested enough to sign up then
they get scared?  What happens between the sign up and exit?

I think it's because we're too politically correct. Always worrying about what people might think of us.
