I'll be jangled!
Maybe I have just missed those threads/discussions.

Being a relatively new member, I lurked for 5 years before I joined. I loved the diversity of topics, content and scope of so many subjects, but the thing that held me back was the inane fear of being unable to debate a topic without embarrassing myself. Some that post on ATS do so on a complex and deep level, offering opinions heavy in context, with seemingly unending resources to support their views. Couple their abilities with my child-like computer skills(I can make a laptop stutter), and you get where I'm coming from.
There are many personalities bouncing around here, different ideologies and cultures. No matter what differences, the one constant was being welcomed and helped along by others that were once "newbies". I don't feel like a misfit---just waitin' to take off my waterwings.
