    ...lurked in World News & Events and/or The Drawing Room while building your nerve, confidence, knowledge, or just because your key hadn't been turned, before you began posting?

    Do you consider yourself a regular here?

    Just so nobody who doesn't know is left to wonder, I've been here since well before this section's inception; and didn't have the opportunity to lurk before jumping in...

    OR:

    Did you jump right in when you first came?

    (Almost forgot that option)

    I've got this vague memory of begging you to indulge our little project, Doc.

    Those were some funny threads, right in the beginning.

    I like it probably because I read the news paper every day ,so I'm up on current events . But to be honest it can be intimidating when starting a thread , did I spell that right , did I give a link ? You have to go with the flow and speak from the heart . The rest falls in to place .

    Same. It's mostly just reading that I do in here. I found out a long time ago that much time is wasted posting in here since the same trolling, lefty, Bush-hater's seems to post the same drivel in every thread virtually ruining thier it's substance and integrity alike.

    Btw, I almost always make sure to read your topics J. Keep up the good posts.

    Didn't it start with a thread about the Iraq war in the Lounge?

    I don't post as much as I used to. The topics lately seem to be dealing with internal American politics, which, while interesting enough, I've not enough experience to comment on why Senator X's record is ABC while Senator Z's record is DEF.

    Edit: And the last topic I posted was derailed in fairly short order.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    *I lurked this thread*

    ...

    Edit: Seriously, I use the board more for information / entertainment than what I contribute myself - and in that regard used to lurk the drawing room. I do post however if the topic is something I feel strongly about (and hence actually have something of value to contribute...)

    You and I spoke about this in a PM once.

    For a long time I was intimidated to post in here. People like you, clocker, Hobbes, Jpaul and others are so articulate and razor sharp that it felt like you were trying to debate someone who tear you a new a hole without trying.

    The person that got me motivated to post in here was leftism. This guy was a liberal nut job that you probably well remember. I just couldn’t take him anymore. If I remember correctly one of my first posts in WN&E was correcting lefty on WWII, which he was spouting off incorrectly.

    BTW I still have the first PM that you sent me after my first exchange with lefty.

    Posted right away if I remember correctly (the Iraq War thread originally in the lounge).
