Hi, Little_Kona. As others have said, the title of your introduction drew me in as well and made me want to reach out and welcome you. Your
introductory post is refreshingly candid and honest. I am fairly new here also, and I felt so welcome almost immediately, as I'm sure you will too.
Sometimes the site kind of reminds me of a Saturday afternoon at an amusement park. Except I don't remember ever getting into a heated discussion
about the New World Order when I was waiting in line to get on a ride at Disney World.
Seriously though, it really is a fantastic place. Other ATS members will almost always evaluate you based on what you say, not on who you are or how
you look. One of the coolest things I've noticed is that people tend to come to your defense pretty quickly in a thread when someone is being overtly
rude, unkind, or hateful. The onsite forum moderators are fair and wise, and the behavior rules and policies are clear and judicious, which is one of
the big reasons why this site is one of the best places to hang out on the internet. It can be pretty addicting. I usually spend at least an hour a
day here, browsing around the various threads, but I have to admit, some days it's more like 3 hours! My fave spot on the site is the Fragile Earth
section. Hope to see you there!
