Dear ATS,

My first attempt at an intro failed so I'd like to quickly summarize. I discovered ATS in high school, I'm now 26.

1. The quality of substance posted on this website has greatly increased my knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the world. I usually have nothing to add to your discussions. The shills and misinformation has never detracted me from extracting the meat and bones from your contributions.

2. My tipping point was the Batman prediction - my mind is blown.

3. I share personality traits with many of you and I'm extremely pleased to be a member of this community.

Thank you all for contributing such intelligence and awareness, I am greatly appreciative to be a member and I look forward to posting the highest degree of quality to this site.

Way to go ATS; extremely impressive. To the members here, your work has not gone unnoticed, you have done a great job, thank you all.

ATS warrior for life,

Welcome aboard! Glad you finally decided to make the proverbial plunge!

8 years lurking huh?

Ladies and gentleman, this is why the "newb" title is not a welcome one here... Registration date means nothing! We all have lots to add, whether we have been a member for one day or a lurker for 8 years!

Anyway, I look forward to seeing you around the boards!

Peace and love, GST

Eight years! Wow, that's one hell of a lurk...

Anyhoo, welcome to the sometimes wacky world of ATS. Keep your tin-foil hat on at all times and don't forget your troll spray....

Be sure to check out the many great threads about the boards and remember civility and intelligence above all.
And of course if your looking for a great new avatar to go with your new account, check out the avatar creations thread in my sig below.

I joined the same day I found the place and they never kicked me out. LOL Hello and welcome!

Thank you all for your warm welcome, I appreciate that you took the time to read the introduction of a potential profane being.

Not so strangely, I feel like I have a closer connection with many of you than I do during during my regular life - despite the fact I've never payed attention to any of your user names.

Your valuation of intelligence, civility and humanity on this forum is second to none. I hold these things in the highest regard and, as well all know, its hard to find people in the flesh that exhibit the same degree of thoughtfulness.

I can only hope to inspire you all as much as you have inspired me.

Peace and love.

For some odd reason, "Lurkie" has made me laugh ( and I laugh loudly) off and on for about 30 minutes! And I thought I was a Lurkie after 3 years of slinking about this site!

Welcome! I lurked for a long time too. Partly because I don't have much to contribute, partly because I hate giving out my email. ATS has kept my secrets though.

Now that you're all signed up, I can't wait to see what you have to say!

Hi Kapablanca,

I have just been trying to reply to the PM you sent me but it isn't sending (perhaps because I am new to the site).

Wanted to thank you for your very kind words and encouragement.

Hope to see you around the forums some more.
