Hi - I enjoy ATS because of its diversity. The crazy posts (in my view) provide entertainment and I am constantly impressed by the well researched content of many contributors.

I'm sure you'll have an interesting time here.

Welcome

Hi christina. Thanks for the welcome. I've already read some crazy posts and yes they're entertaining, but I would prefer to read the well-researched ones you are impressed by.

I don't get this one?



2. Thick skin


Yes, no problems, the anonymity always seems to provide an extra layer.



3. The ATSers Guide to Troll Identification


Got it, thanks.



4. Love of good debate


I've been reading the posts for a while and thought it's about time I create an account.



LOL, I jest. Welcome again and I look forward to seeing you around the boards!

Steel undies for the folks out there that will be more than willing to chew on your nether regions for not other reason than they can and they find it amusing.

I'm still not sure about your reference, it could be because I'm in Australia & we're a bit slow on the uptake, here;-)

Deano.

I've noticed that there are a fair amount of Australians on here, enough to suggest that an Australian-specific forum for Australian-specific topics, could be quite popular and helpful -- or would that prove to be an unnecessary complication?

LOL, well basically there is a phrase here in the States: "He/She gave me a good butt chewing" or "I chewed his rear for what he/she did or said" or "The boss really chewed me out for the mistake I made". This means that while engaged in a heated debate/discussion/argument the other person, or perhaps yourself, used words to give the other person a verbal kick in the pants.

Here on ATS, sometimes, the discussions seem to get to this boiling point. So in order to protect from the "butt chewing" or "kick in the pants" I was suggesting a pair of steel undies in order to keep your backside intact!

Okay, now I'm on the same page. I haven't heard that phrase before and I don't think we use it here in Australia, but the 'kick in the pants' phrase is usually used on the lazy sods that like to bludge instead of work. Steel undies, no worries.

Thanks for explaining that.

Like I said, I'm unsure I'll post, but it's good to have that option with a completed and working membership.
