My other, was my Uncle, gave me a list of sites for my "continuing education."
I quit going to another forum I'd spent years at because the moderating was selective and biased, and because this year's election caused some of the "untouchable" posters to become abusive toward those who were not enamored by their candidate. The place became hostile, unpleasant, and the moderators were part of the problem. So I left and looked around.
Someone mentioned this place in passing, so I checked it out. Truthfully, I was so intrigued by the "Thanks" feature that I signed up immediately. I figured, hey, civility is a must, they thank each other politely, this must be the place for me.
As some of the posts in this very thread prove, it's not quite as civil around here as I'd initially hoped.
Then I saw... The Basement. I've been scared ever since.

Ha ! You should see my basement...worse yet, the "trash room"...Then I saw... The Basement. I've been scared ever since.
But these things are necessary; not every man is civilized..Pigs belong in a sty and bats in a cave; Racists in Antarctica, as far away from man as humanly (or inhumanly) as possible...
I am here, seeking the honest man, searching for the truth
I looked for months. My forum had become overrun with radicals. I think they were all 14. There were some brilliant people that I learned a lot from but most of them left.
When the election is over I hope we can keep it lively here. You'll see why I can't call myself a conservative.
I love a good debate, and DP seemed to have (some ) rational adults on board, as well as fair moderators and enough differing opinions so that it was never in any danger of turning into an echo-chamber for side. All in all, I'm glad I joined.
