    I have a site that I think of as "home," for like minded people, but I felt the need for a site to think of as a "club" where I could discourse with people with incorrect divergent opinions.

    The last site I tried for that purpose is increasingly dominated by very childish types.

For my own changing circumstances, I wasn't willing anymore to put up with the extreme juvenile sexist troll posts put up at women anymore.

    The last of the very few legit conservatives also had left, leaving just a mass of Obama maniacs and trolls posting hate messages at me - with a few exceptions.

    The inaction of those moderators allowed the board to dramatically deteriorate in my opinion. Rather than complain, I just posted a short thank you note for interesting messages and for the few decent ones and then just change to a different board(s). This one has the most diverse topics of political/social topic boards. I also am on some other more partisan or specific topic boards.

    This also is a thank you to moderators of this board... it is reassuring (particularly if there is any personal topic discussion) to know there are moderators who allow heated argument but draw a line on just hate personal attacks. Thank you again for your time and involvement.

    Oh, were you at PH too?

    Re: What brought you to this forum?

    Hello all! Was just browsing around for debates and saw this site in google. Figured this poll would be a good place to introduce myself and say hi.

    HI!

    I consider myself an Independant. Have spent the last 3-4 years discussing everything from science to politics to religion and several other inbetween things.

    Counting this site I visit:

    2 Science based forums
    1 religious based forum
    2 racial based forums 1 white 1 hispanic (trying to spread the message of "why can't we all just get along)
    1 forum that many would deem a "kook forum" that has to do with UFO's, PSI and government coverup's.
    1 Political based forum (this one)
    1 gaming forum that changes every time I change the game that I'm playing currently.

    Yes I have a busy forum life.

    I'm married with two wonderful kids. 1 boy 1 girl. Wife wants to stop at 2 kids but I want 4. Since it's her body guess I can't force her to have more.

    I'm a serious type of person that doesn't take too well to stupid people. I have this odd obsession of trying to educate them. Usually just ends up with me throwing my hands up in the air though.

    On the flip side I love humor and have quite a dirty mind...so dirty that you would think that it came from the middle of a 100 year old garbage dump site.

    Welp that's enough about me for now. I'm sure you'll see/find my other quirks as we get to know each other more and more.

    I joined because I was in the middle of writing a political paper and liked the range of views and discussions.
