…And the rest of the Administration, Staff and Members of ATS.
I joined this site on June 12, 2006 and have participated in numerous discussions. I have seen things that have made me angry, disgusted, sick and
outraged. I have been directly challenged, called out and on a few occasions berated and insulted for my thoughts beliefs and opinions. I have
disagreed with actions and stances taken on this board and policies that have been implemented. I have even had a post removed and points (not that I
care about those) deducted for defending a member from what I took as an unwarranted attack, because that post of mine was not very civil. But this
just takes the cake.
I was looking at my profile today and I find that this is marks my one thousandth post. A minor milestone for some, but I was surprised. I stumbled
across this site while looking up information to use in a pen and paper roleplaying game which I ended up never running. After seeing the civility
and decorum and the open exchange of ideas, I signed up. Not everything on here is pretty nor is it for everyone. But I applaud you all (sorry no
points with that) for challenging me to think, expand, share and grow.
And here is to hoping that I do not take another nearly three years to throw out the next thousand posts.
