true to your word - you have no profile
can I ask you an honest question then?
what are you after exactly?
this isn't the beginning of a confrontation - so please don't misunderstand the question
you're here at ATS - a very specific type of forum - regardless of your personal favorite subject matter
it is a forum where "information" - and I would put a billion
quotation marks around that if I could - is ALWAYS suspect
this is basically an exchange of ideas/theories - a place to ask your questions - and get feedback
even when something is resolved here - it's never really resolved
this place is Alice's Wonderland - and I am thankful for it - I like it here
there are some incredibly bright, perceptive people here - make no mistake about that
bright - brilliant even - people who quite often think everyone else is nuts
and the world outside of ATS - well - we ALL look like nuts to them - so - it's good to have a thick skin
but I'm really curious about what you're after
since you have no profile - I can't even guess your age
but if I were a friend of yours - what I would say to you is:
you go ahead and say what you need to say the way you want to say it - as yourself if you can - as someone else if that helps you
if no one listens - what have you lost?
but the truth is - someone is always listening - and somehow the right information finds the person who's looking for it
