ok... during my extensive stumping for votes this evening....
I've had around 5 people ask me who I was before. Are there a lot of people who get banned and come back or something?
I seriously, honestly, absolutely am not a "returner". I swear on all my feathers!!! This really is my first time on ATS, I've not been here before
under another name, EVER!
It's kinda cool they think I've been here before because that means I learned the ropes pretty quick, so I'm taking it as a compliment.
But, I hearby promise you, I am not a returner, this is my very first ATS account and I don't know any of those folks that the other people asked me
A dear friend introduced me to ATS back in the winter and I lurked for a while, then made an account. She's not on much, but she would vouch for me
if needed. She's like a pseudo-sister
I did spend a lot of time on AOL message boards years ago and was also a Host there (similar to a moderator here) and know my way around the computer
fairly well. There are a lot of similarities between there and here (this was back before AOL went completely evil and demonic). They gave free
monthly membership to the Hosts, so there wasn't any "pay" just like the mods here are volunteers.
Oh well, just thought I'd share that because it was really weird having so many ask me about it and it was really hard to convince them I really
hadn't been here before... not sure they believe me, but I really haven't.
So does that happen a lot or something?
I usually don't "go back" to somewhere if I get "tossed out", so chances are, if they toss me out, you won't see me again... of course if
that's the custom, I'd have to think about it, but what's the use. If I can't behave the first time aroud and keep from getting thrown out,
chances are, I wouldn't be able to do it a second time either
okies, just thought I'd share that
