A lot of us lurkers just use this site more or less as an alternative news outlet.
Life circumstances left me basically addicted to current events around the globe. This is one site of maybe half a dozen I check out every day to get
updates on what's going on around the globe. Casually skimming this place constantly provides interesting information, and more importantly, often
provides a side of the information that isn't portrayed in the MSM. Sometimes the information here isn't seen in the MSM at all.
Being that I am addicted to current events and interesting news, and being that I have an IQ above room temperature and am familiar with that fact
that more "regular" media outlets would not provide me with all the information I desire, I sometimes end up here. And other places. As to why I
haven't registered and don't discuss it with you guys? =/
Sometimes I read the discussions that follow whatever story or idea is being discussed. 9 times out of 10 it seems to involve tons of people making
sideways remarks about whatever political or religious affiliation they agree or don't agree with. They act very clever about it, too - they throw
barbs they know won't get them in trouble, but that still piss off who hears them, and it seems they honestly think nobody sees through this. I
honestly just never wanted to get enmeshed in that. I learn what I need to from this place, but I discuss it with people who don't feel the need to
inject their opinions into everything being discussed. Not that everybody here does that, but, well...take it from somebody entirely unbiased, it
happens enough to prevent me (and you could call me average in the sense that I am probably not alone in this) from wanting to register and get
involved, except maybe on a morning like today when I've got an hour to kill before dental surgery and don't mind explaining how I feel.
I still wish you guys all the best and am very grateful for the information presented here and will continue to eat up information from the shadows.
Peace guys, and be well.
