Some character from a Dostoevsky novel or so I sometimes imagine. My name is... filched. That is a not too common word from the most important novel
of one of my favorite novelists who named Dostoevsky as one of his favorite novelists. Anyway, that is not really my name but a word I cherish for
its sentimental and symbolic value. Greetings.
I started lurking on ATS 7 years ago during a really low period in my life because the discussions helped me see the world in a different light, this
was after my world came crashing down around me. Prior to ATS I had assumed the nature of reality to be a certain way, sort of like a generic,
mediocre, watered-down, childlike sense of things. I was asleep. I was on the surface. Until something happened that caused me a lot of pain and
anguish. Then I awoke. Then I dove deeper. My eyes were opened.
I've been away from ATS for a few years, preferring a different conspiracy site for the last 2 years, however like the prodigal son I have made my
return. Moderators, please forgive the fact that I've created a new account even though I'm not a newbie. I needed to start fresh as I'm sure you
can understand. In reality I've made thousands of posts, tens of threads, gotten into plenty nasty arguments I'm not proud of and been banned 2-3
times. I've also made a few really good contributions to the overall purpose of this site which is...
In summation I'm glad to be back. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.
