Excited about finding a new forum that has rules, lol.

Hello to the forum. I hope I can make my contributions half as interesting as those I have seen while looking around. I am a science enthusiast and my thing is layman discussions about cosmology, physics, and philosophy. I see there are forums for every interest, and have viewed some of the discussion and really like the good natured conduct. Other forums often allow too much disparagement and insults that are out of proportion to the simple thread discussions that I usually conduct. Any welcome is appreciated, and I'm off the get my feet wet.

I so agree with you! Some forums are a collection of attacks and swear words and I get very little information!
Information is what i want and sometimes people get testy but the rules are enforced and we can discuss and weave our way to the facts!

I was drawn here for the same reasons, rules.

Although my very well thought out (and extremely witty, I might add) sarcasm has been removed a couple times, it is only when I'm off topic.

Best of all, you can find a topic to tickle your fancy, no matter what you are interested in, some for all.

Welcome aboard! See you around

Welcome to ATS! I look forward to seeing your contributions. I too, joined because of the rules for civil discourse, something that earlier I had a problem with.

I still have a foul mouth at times, but not as much as I used to.
And I don't exercise that foul language here either.

All thanks to ATS.

By tomorrow I hope to have my 20 post in so I can start a thread (which I'm already working on, lol.)

I appreciate the welcomes which confirm my suspicion that ATS is a great forum and I will enjoy myself here. I don't understand yet how "friends" works here so I won't go through and befriend all of you, but I welcome any and all friends because I know how important they are in forum life. I hope you will look at my new thread, and if you are :GeekWarning: interested in physics and cosmology please join in. Thanks again, and I will look for you around the forums.

Hope I'm not too late to wish you a hearty Welcome to ATS.....

Too late for a me too?

In all seriousness, I'm glad you pointed this out. There's...certain conspiracy forums out there where basically anything goes. Makes for akward conversation now and then.

Anywho, good to have you here!

This has become my favorite forum site because I find the rules are well established and enforced.
I don't have much patience with a lot of trolling that disrupts constructive exchange.
Welcome, and I hope you enjoy yourself here!

I'll say it again, this seems to be the kind of forum I have always thought should be out there somewhere. Why did I not find it long ago? I often search for active forums to find people willing to discuss my far out ideas and my closely held secrets without too much fear of insult and antagonistic egoism, yet didn't find ATS until now. I took the time to look around and I have seen the threads some of you have started and the variety of interests here, and after about a whole week I am still excited, lol. Thank you so much for welcoming me and for providing such great threads and posts.

I have noticed that even with rules of conduct there are ways to put people in their place and sometimes that is impossible to resist, and I have learned some of the "how to" by my brief look at what some of you and others have had to say here and there. I consider a it an art to carryout a well mannered put down, and some of you here are quite talented; I hope to learn as I go, though so far I haven't had any use for such a talent.
