My life is going pretty good lately. However, I often find myself getting bummed out by little things; bills, things I need to get done, etc.

And the I find myself in an 4 hour binge of posting things on here. Some of it is serious stuff. And almost everytime I walk away from here, I realize I am more relaxed than when I entered.

I see people making threads about how much ats has changed, or how closed minded or bigoted they feel the people on here are. And although there is some of that, I feel that the majority of the people here are far better to speak to about the topics we discuss here than mst people I know in the real world. Even the ones that never agree with me.

So thanks to all for providing an education and entertainment for me.

You know, ATS has actually made me a better person in more ways than one.

It's weird how that works.

It's like a huge, therapeutic, self-reflecting playground. Good times or bad times, there is always something to gain, you just gotta find the gems deep within the dirt.


Back to back positive threads, I think it's time we all hold hands and sing kumbuya.

It's made me tougher, the anonymity of the site makes people very willing to jab your argument with some choice language.

After a while you have to be an adult and not let someone else's opinion bother you. When you do that you can keep your focus and convey your point.

That is something you can't put value on in day to day life where there are fewer adults out in the "professional" world or public than ever.

your level headed approach to things has helped me to change some of the ways I dealt with things, so if nothing else, you affected one guy in a positive way. I'd call that a win.

not into hugging, but I'll offer a virtual fist bump.

While I do enjoy the members here with common sense and coherent thought, I'd hate for ATS to become nothing more than an echo chamber (some members may argue this already exists here). Without an opposing viewpoint ATS would get boring and stagnant real quick. I welcome all ATSers to the discussion as it certainly makes things interesting seeing at least two sides of any given controversial topic.

S&F for you Grambler as well as the rest of ATS.

Mine too, some very sharp minds here, awesome researchers and funny folk. I don't agree with everyone but I respect their right to type-out what's on their mind and in the search for knowledge and truth, this is a damn good place to get copious amounts of both, you just need to know where to look.

I have grown to truly appreciate my interactions on here.

They have made me more aware of my own confirmation bias's, helped me to form better arguments, find better sources and learn so much about constructing dialogue in a way that makes one think as opposed to offend.

In this world of chaos, there is so much information out there for either side to run with, it helps to have this be a grounds for getting plenty of each side and coming to an understanding that aligns with your own intuition.



To all of you awesome contributors, it is an honor to interact with so many people like minded enough to think outside the box no matter where we are from!

Thanks for the positive thread Grambler!

Oh, I want in! Would I be considered manly enough for this hug if I've just come in from working the garden, all grubby and such?
