Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by Nono, Nov 27, 2016.
Nono's the name. I'm a refugee from the now-defunct Volconvo. And seem to have washed up here.
I haven't heard of Volconvo. Seems a bit like our place according to Google.
Welcome up. <obligatory>Whose dual are you?</obligatory>
So tell us about yourself, @Nono.
I feel obliged to compliment the mods on the success of their new member drive.
Who is recruting who?
Ignore self-referential board drama and you'll be (mostly) fine (probably)
Nova meet Nono, Nono meet Nova.
Welcome and props for the avatar!
When are ya gonna post already?
Ahm a-fixin' to post any day now ....
Dual!?! I'm the One and Only.
Uh, well, where to start? Long story.
No -- Volconvo was my sandbox for the 13 years of its existence. But last month it went the way of all earthly things.
Other than that I'm a "retired" staff-translator but still working hard for my former employer.
Also a lifelong aerogeek and animal-lover, a bit of a history buff, bit of a politics junky too (i.e. opinionated and strong sense of right'n'wrong). What else? Bit of a smart-ass, I'm afraid. Well it takes all kinds.
Lousy childhood, great adulthood.
Those are the highlights, as I see it.
If you go full smart ass, you'll fit right in.
Now, how do you feel about Star Trek? It's important.

I think you just had a chance to see us at our absolute worst for the last two weeks or so. If you still intend to stay, you're clearly made for this place!
I'll be frank: Though I don't know all that many boards, I'm not sure I've ever seen a place as chaotic as this. When you look at the all the forums set out there with their soothing definitions on the home page, it looks inviting. Then you go in and select Thread X or Y and see people telling each other to fuck off and calling each other stupid and doing everything conceivable except discussing the thread topic. And some of these thread topics do seem a trifle uhh.. eccentric, whimsical.
It makes me wonder whether any real debating gets done here.
I've also joined another board that appears to be heaving with Fascist Tough Guys. So I have my work cut out there --- perfect for someone as moronically argumentative as me. If I don't get banned or driven away by the hostile vibes.
So I think I'll stay with both if that's OK.
Yes. Wait for it. Actually, don't wait; jump on in and help us.
If it helps, we happen to have a smiley already named for you.
: nono :
I'm ambivalent about trek. I came here for the free food.
Get back in the dishpit!
That's a fair statement
What's the link to the Fascist board? Some of us can go over and...diversify the place.
Well, it isn't exactly the Führerbunker, but it is crawling with some interesting specimens of Hard Rightism. Not only, thank God.
Can I post it here without getting my knuckles rapped?
Hey, go ahead
Here it is: http://www.debatepolitics.com/forum.php
All it takes is endless patience and a willingness to waste time talking to Brick Walls.
I say that but I'm new there too ---- limited experience so far.
