Hello ATS!

It has been a while since I participated in the threads here, I needed to take a bit of a breather and learn how to better handle devoutly partisan members/mods. I quit posting nearly a year ago, but have been reading almost daily.

Leaving ATS was one of the best things that I ever did. Posting as regularly as I used to, I never had the chance to allow my mind and my thoughts to evolve, my opinion was already made up. Taking a step back and reading instead of interjecting has allowed me to view subjects more broadly, while I still lean one way or another, my overall view of things, especially politics, is more rounded… Perhaps I was one of the partisan people I was so sick of!

While I wish not to disclose my old username as I feel it no longer reflects who I am, I would like to tell you a bit about myself.

I am a SX/EW operator. I run a plant in AZ where we mine copper by leaching ore with sulfuric acid, then plate the solvent mixture onto cathodes via electrolysis, creating 80-140lb plates of 99.999% pure copper.

I studied chemistry at Northern Arizona University, and metallurgy at the University of Arizona.

In my free time I enjoy reading, playing video games, tinkering with nearly anything I can get my hands on ( I love other people’s trash!!), competitive shooting, lapidary/silver smithing, reloading, and playing bar games.

I look forward to once again participating on this site and with its members in a more positive and productive manner.

Welcome back, of course I don't need to remind you that the Status Quo is much the same.

Obviously you do, or you wouldn't have gone down that path...

Tell ya' what champ, give up the past tense and I'll do the same. Quite a few of us have been there and back, so spill the beans and I'll follow suit.
