Hello all! I, too, have been a long time lurker around the ATS site. I finally decided to create my very own, uniquely-me account.
One of the absolute top reasons I decided to join is that most people on this site are respectful of each other and really try hard to investigate the
topic(s) at hand. The times that I have seen someone be disrespectful, there has always been an immediate reply defending the "victim" and
reiterating that we should all have respect.
This is so different from just about every other social networking site I have ever been on and it is one of the reasons I have come back to this site
again and again over the last several years. (Yes, I did say years!)
Another reason I wanted to join is to connect with like-minded people.
Why now, after lurking for all these years? The world (and the earth) are changing! To borrow from Stephen King, the world has "moved on".
So maybe one of these days I will actually have something relevant to say and will post something on a topic.
I look forward to getting to know you all and seeing what membership here has to offer that trolling doesn't.
