I've been a member for over a year, maybe two, I can't remember but ...Jeez, this site is pretty unique. And it's not only the subject matter.
I've found myself countless times doing something that is normally excusable on the internet, but find that I have crossed lines that only seem to
exist in real life.
I have to say, the ATS membership are really unique ... Especially when it comes to interaction. I find myself having to treat you people like human
beings, instead of data streams from my internet connection.
As most of you know, the internet is an anonymous place and many netizens treat it like their own personnal playground, throwing insults and generally
being nuisances. That is rarely if ever tolerated here.
I'm sure this is not only due to the great people that post here, but also from the tireless work the administration and moderators put in filtering
and refiltering the pool-of-posters, always struggling for this perfect balance of community.
Thank you to the posters and the administration for providing such a refreshing and unique place on the internet. And for forcing me to treat fellow
posters like human beings, something I've never even thought of doing on an internet forum before.
