Arrives, TheTooner
« on: May 22, 2013, 07:02:32 PM »
Hello.

I discovered this site via a link on the blog SmallDeadAnimals, and seeing it self-described as "A Conservative Forum", I thought that's a part of the U.S.A. I'll probably enjoy visiting.

I'm a self-employed tradesman in a small (and getting too big) city in Western Canada.

Welcome Tooner. Are you from the part of Canada where you can get a pizza to your house faster than an ambulance?  ::saywhat::

I think that makes 2 Canucks, now right? Welcome to the forum Tooner.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

Welcome.
The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living
are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Fresh meat!

I always find it interesting how people find these smaller forums.

That's what I was thinking.

*sigh*

Why do they take the time and trouble to register, make an introductory post, and then not participate?

If you figure out that one, let me know.

Some sites are openly hostile to new posters. Places like FreeRepublic refer to you as "newbie" for years. They'll challenge you even when you post a sycophantic "me too" at places like DU or huffpo. I have to laugh at the absurdity of providing your bona fides as an anonymous poster on some internet website but there are those who take it very seriously.

There was one site I registered at about two years ago that looked promising at first. I made a couple of perfunctory posts and even pointed it out to one of the IAL crew. But the second glance showed too many mouth-breathers and too much drama so I abandoned the joint.

I don't know what the ratio of new recruits to enduring members is here, but I have to say that we attract quality people. The fact that they tolerate me proves my case ;-)

I like new members. I really do. I leave breadcrumbs all over the place and when one of those leads ends up bringing in a new member I give thanks.

But...

I have to admit that I do get a bit irritated when someone shows up, goes to the trouble of posting an intro and then...nothing.

Which is why I don't get too excited about noobs until they have shown some staying power. It's too bad that I have that attitude but after this much time watching this cycle repeat and repeat and repeat...

...well...*yawn*...what was I talking about? Sorry. Losing focus and losing interest.

Must.

Stay.

Awake...

Dayum.  Are we that boring?  Or that radical?

I doubt we are boring.

And we don't bite heads off...unless bitten first...or very annoyed.  Newbies doing a one and done might qualify for the latter...
