Seems I missed my 6th birthday here at ATS.
I found ATS by means of some 9/11 story that interested me (NYC Resident) and I found myself gravitating towards aliens/ufos and 9/11 and terrorism
stories. I got hooked by the games (still have my giant bean bag) and the infamous Slurpo nonsense.
I had a run-in with Simon over the illuminati (I recall telling him that, as a site owner, he should try not to be so rude), a spat with Springer over
the tv show that never came to fruition and SO over a very wrong answer in one of the trivia games (the lipstick building is on lexington avenue Bill
- We had steaks there two weeks back and I failed to remind you, yet again, of that gaffe) and somehow, still, I was asked to join the staff. I
respectfully declined but Springer pushed so, being the jewish accountant that I am, I asked what they paid and if we received shares in the
Springer's response - "funny you should ask" - led to my coming on board, finding angel investors and my rapid rise from moderator to CFO.
some do's and don'ts:
do act in a civil manner.
do post often but make those posts count.
don't post nonsense, don't derail threads, certainly don't hoax the community.
do file complaints/alerts when you see something on the boards that doesn't belong.
don't file complaints without explaining what you see as an issue, unless it's obvious.
don't fear the staff. we're members first, moderators last.
don't feed us after midnight and never, ever get us wet.
