    I'm only checking out the place now. You have strange traditions if you claim to know the new members of your forum already.

    When I was at school if I didn't like a subject my teacher would always say "must try harder".

    Kind've a motto around here. It's the test we give to noobs.

    Anyhow, welcome and happy posting.

    The other question you'll get is how did you find us, so get used to that one, too.

    Cool, I'm sure nobody's heard of that. Of course, it doesn't really answer the question. Most of us migrated her from another BBS, where this one is well known to its members. I'm always curious about how people find their way here, so I was hoping that if it was google, there might have been a search query that placed us high on the results.

    Some of that is because we're a spinoff of Trek BBS and a few posters come over to us when they take a forced vacation.

    I really wasn't trying to troll you, I thought you were someone from that board, one of the decent posters there. Welcome, hope you stick around, regardless.:techman:

    Just a suggestion, but feel free to start a thread of your own. I don't want ya to think we're insensitive assholes 'cuz of gturner's thread becoming about food. If you discuss your thoughts on a topic, we'll give you a fair shot and you'll see a better side of the board. :techman:

    This.

    gturner is basically a bot. I'm not sure why people here have discussions with it, but they do.
