Hello. Call me Glitch. Everyone else does.

I spent a lot of time lurking here before I actually joined and since I joined I have been fighting the urge to actually post (I like the shadows). I feel that I should properly introduce myself before adding my 2 cents to topics that interest me, so here I am!

I'm called Glitch because I'm a klutz and a computer geek. About ten years back, after a particularly nasty fall, a friend blurted out, "She's a walking glitch!" and the name has stuck.

I don't really remember the original reason that lead me to ATS, but I do know that I haven't been able to go a day without spending at least 3 hours reading the new threads. I love the fact that intelligent debate has a chance here. I am really looking forward to joining in with all the chatter.

I have a strong interest in the paranormal, history, anthropology, religion, UFOs/aliens, and questioning everything. I do believe things outside what the world would call normal exist, but I am a firm believer in skepticism.

In the real world, I am a student of English with a background in British literature (no I'm not from the UK, I just prefer their literature), editing/proofreading, and I have recently decided to try my hand at creative writing. I make a living with graphic design and a little bit of photography.

I can be a bit sarcastic, but it seems that a lot of you are as well, so hopefully it won't be a problem! I'll try to keep it to a minimum until I'm somewhat established.

Welcome Glitch!

I think you will find that what you consider your faults may help you to fit right in here.
We are all a little piece of a big puzzle.
Now that you are a member..get posting and have a blast!
Don't forget to come on over and visit us in BTS.

I really do hope that you are right (about fitting in). I really don't want to wish that I had never started posting to begin with!

Welcome glitch! Glad to have you on board. Oh, you'll fit in just fine. Just like all of us do.

May I recommend the ATS debate forums? When you need a sarcasm recharge or outlet, with a strong basis of lighthearted arrogance, we're always ready to provide. See links in sig.

Again, welcome & enjoy!

Thank you, everyone.

It might take me a little while, but I think I will enjoy posting! Glad to see that sarcasm is welcome.

Ian, you mention the debate board; is that one of the boards that you need permission to post in? I seem to remember something along those lines when I was reading all the guidelines when I first joined. (It is something that I am interested in)

Glitch, yes, the actual debate threads are restricted to the two participants of a particular debate -- you get your 'fighter' title when you enter your first debate, and can then post in the debate forum.

There a Public 'Fight-Club' Pub thread, with more info, where first-time debaters can post a challenge and sign up for a debate. Debating can be a real challenge, though -- I'll be the first to admit that we can spend a little too much time getting caught up in our own dialectic, sarcasm, and wit -- that's what makes it fun, though

Of course, that's true anywhere here on ATS! Also you might perhaps enjoy some of the member Podcasts (see the side-bar at the right-hand side of the screen); they can be interestingly humanizing especially since the board can seem so big at times.
