Remember: just because someone has trudged around this deceptively cute looking internet quagmire for awhile to finally be described with the humble title of 'long-standing member' by someone else who is a legitimate witness, and is a dedicated person who also stuck around to wait for the right moments to speak and opinionate when they choose, to eventually convince people that they generally are good at writing at times something clever, insightful or witty, does not make them the more right about every little detail or discussion they decide to get involved with.
You can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all of the time. - Abraham Lincoln
I am in defense mode now just as much as any male that comes around will find they must conform to to stick around to some degree. This is not a place for the weak of heart. It is anarchy in a way - only, not the greatest experience of it yet - a certain kind of happiness given the right amount of freedom has not been achieved. After you are welcomed in, you can easily be told indirectly to leave. Trying to take sides upon arrival, I was cautious to do so, and now I find myself as a mere one-man army, and this place has quickly become like a battlefield of ideals. Well, I'm not interested in war. I want a peace treaty. Everyone wins when there is peace. Too bad we all couldn't join forces soon enough. I'm too damaged from this experience already. The long-standing members in charge around here should care more about everyone who joins. That is how I would run this show, because it matters as this is all public information now. Thanks at least for the welcome message, but it didn't end up being that warm for me. Anyway, I tried to bring some fresh ideas. I hope someone new can do it better than me in the future, or there won't be anything good to look forward to here, except the same shit on a different day.
