    Re: What brought you to this forum?

    I used to post regularly at the Black Flag Cafe, which is a webiste owned and operated by Robert Young Pelton. He is a journalist/novelist/adventurer. He writes the series World's Most Dangerous Places and you may remember he was the man who interviewed John Walk Lindh (the American Taliban) on CNN.

    Their debate forum was, I'd say, just as well run as this one but less restrictive in terms of enforcing politeness. You've never seen a flame war until you've been at the BFC. It was a good forum with some extremely intelligent people but I just felt like switching to a debate forum that was purely politics as opposed to an amalgam of politics and travel, the latter being the primary reason for the BFC.

    I cut my teeth in the BFC and it left me well prepared to venture into DP. I like both sites equally well and find them to be equally diverse and intersting but I've been posting exclusively at DP for the past three years. I debated at the BFC for about three years, so in all I've been debating politics online for about six years, since I was eighteen.

    refered by someone i knew on another lighter site, my first message board, that i ended up getting banned from for going up against the Admin
    guy told me this was a good site, but a whole nother level than what we had been doing, and that i would be getting my ass kicked for a good while
    no better way to learn, so I signed up
    now i just need to stop coming here when drinking *tips hat to TOT*

    Re: What brought you to this forum?

    What brought me here to this forum was a recommendation from another poster(Missouri Mule).
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Like Tashah google brought me here. I was impressed then by the people here and joined up. This was the first message board I joined and I love all the different types of people here.

    Re: What brought you to this forum?

    I was a freshmen in College and was really getting big into politics at this point. 9/11 hit and things got even more heated politically. I was having discussions on campus with people about politics and eventually after my sophmore year I changed from Computer Science to Political Science.

    One summer away from college I was eager for political discourse and discussion and had few outlets for it over the summer. Its then i went online to seasrch.

    Jumped in google, typed debate AND politics, and up came this site.

    I was mostly a lurker very early on, posting rarely and mostly just reading. teacher's exploits in the 9/11 was an inside job type threads were ones that always had me coming back. It was a colorful group of people from all kinds of political leans.

    Finally I started posting more little by little and been here ever since.

    Re: What brought you to this forum?

    I starting posting in the politics section for the forums for a free online game called utopia about 9 years ago. The forum started to die after a while, so started looking elsewhere and this site ended up being the best one I found.
