I would have been, I think, if I hadn't been so all-fired up about some crazy stuff said about black people on this board. And very few posters called them on it. Most times, whatever totally misguided and unresearched assertion they made was taken as fact, and incorporated into the conversation. That really hurt me personally because I had never joined a discussion group before, but I felt like here could be home. So, when I joined, I wanted to foster fact-driven conversations about race, and that put a lot of strain on me. I was so busy with that that I couldn't participate in my personal forum of interest: paranormal activity.
Sorry for the 'life story', I just wanted to explain.
