I just want to state on the record here how thankful I am to everyone who posts here. The good, the bad and the ugly are all most welcome by me. I
know I have been all three in my short time here. Haha, I have even vowed never to post here again in my heated moments! Yet every experience I have
had has been worth the while.
I suppose I have got a lot out of this because I have put a lot of emotion and candidness into it. I have taken you all seriously. I tried not to be
rude or disrespectful.
I do not post here so much these days, but I read here most days all the stuff you guys post. I love it so much. I find affinity, a strange kind of
comfort and feeling of community here that I just cannot find anywhere else.
You know I guess we are all out of the box people who come here. We are not the usual. Did you know that we are even quite rare, most of us. Man, all
you serious people who are contributing to ATS in a sincere way would be the kind of people I would revel in at any party.
Here I have been able to interact with knowledgeable physicists, soldiers, survivalists, people having psychosis, people dying, oh my word it is
enless. Yet what is it that makes this forum community a cut above the rest?
For me it is the candidness, the diversity, the knowledge, the Internationalism, the cleverness and the humanity that when mixed with sincerity
produce a magic blend that is the phenomenon of ATS.
I say this very seriously that since I started to come here and "argue" I have found that I have developed amazingly in my world view, my skills of
communication and debate, my writing skills and my understanding of many aspects of real life, up to the second thought.
All that coupled with wit and humour that at times is beyond anything the main stream can offer makes me really proud of my membership here and my
deep respect to everyone who is a sincere member of this community.
Thanks for extending my mind in all directions and for helping me to find a bit of belonging in this world!
