...suppose it was about time I registered. I've been lurking the forums since ATS was in its infancy. Pre 9/11, it was a much different place, but I feel privileged to have watched it grow over the years.

When you spend twelve hours a day, working a cushy corporate gig, finding ways of amusing yourself becomes an art. My time has been spent here.

For those of you who have seen what few post I have, you'll notice my presence in LEO related threads. My background is in law enforcement and personal security. It allows me to give a perspective that some here never know otherwise, and for others, most assuredly a target to flame.

Anyways, I look forward to contributing to the community. Once I rack up a few more post, I'll share some interesting stories and never before seen UFO pics that I hope ATS can help explain.

Cheers from the south.

Hi, it's surprising you have lurked on ATS for a decade and now finally register. I did not know ATS even existed back then! When I found this site, I jumped right in yet wade cautiously always.

Seeing as you've been around for such a time, I can't think of any other advice to offer that would be of worth to ya.

Objective discussion without bias can be hard to find these days. I hope it just became a little less so. Cheers to you as well from the West!

Well written, nice handle. Welcome.

T & C they said.

Make every post count they said.

...didn't see any reason to post when I really didn't have anything to contribute. Besides, young and impressionable folk ought to learn a little rational thinking before delving in to the wacky world of conspiracy theorizing. We wouldn't want to cloud the forum with teenage tomfoolery and things of the like.

Thank you for the warm welcome.
