Today marks the one year anniversary of my joining ATS. I joined the first day I discovered it, as I was absolutely enthralled with the diversity of
subject matter and the intelligence of a vast majority of the membership. After the election, I did take several months were I only lurked, or did
not view ATS altogether until making it a part of my daily life again in June. During the past year, I have gotten to know many intelligent and
beautiful people, as well as debate several sharp individuals who's views were counter to my own. Both have helped me to grow.
So, I would like to thank a few individual members: AshleyD (in both her pre-Mod and post-Mod incarnations) for her level headedness and for her
kindness. Schrodingers dog for setting such a high benchmark for the rest of us to aspire to. Zazzafrazz for just being Zazzy! mikerussellus for
keeping me on my toes. tothetenthpower for being my wingman on more than a few occasions. weedwhacker for a most singular view of the world (almost
always commical). To my fellow members of A.S.S. (American Sarcasm Society), for that fantastic
wit that you add to this site. To all of the
Site Owners, Admin, and Moderators for providing and maintaining such a unique internet experience. To jsobecky for inspiring the
5 millionth post
on ATS. To all of my BTS friends on mutter, Floofy,
Cuddlefish, J-puff, Tulip, pooter and all the rest, as well of those who frequent chat for providing some sanity when the lunacy on the forums gets to
be too much. And to so many more, but there just isn't the time to list everyone...
It's been an interesting year, from Blossum Goodchild and the Galactic Federation of Light, to a historic election here in the US. The endless
string of impending false flag events (that never seem to pass), as well as the ever impending Rapture. Some things here have inspired me to keep a
pound of salt on my computer desk. Some things are best taken with not just a pinch of salt, but a whole pound of it. It constantly reminds me of
So, as I embark on my second year, my sophmore year, I am thankful for all of the insight and thought provoking information I have been exposed to
here, but also look forward to many, many years to come...
Live Long and Prosper,
