Thanks for allowing me to be here

Hello, all.  I am new here so please put up with me getting the buttons and conventions correct.  All that I really have to say tonight is thanks for the welcome, and please talk me through the details of the site, and of the conventions of being a proper citizen here.  I have an obligation to post a guest spot at DailyKos Thursday, but I wonder if it would be OK to post it here and cross post it there.  It has to do with a medical thing.  Any guidance is welcome, since I am new here.

Warmest regards,

  1. favorite site because of the tolerance.  Tolerance for ideas, comments, and views.  So enjoy!  

  2. Welcome, and I’m pretty sure that cross-posting is just fine. Buhdy and others here do it often.

    Enjoy this great site!

  3. Not much to tell! No I/P, No dkos bashing, put the seat down and don’t drink out of the carton!

    Our motto is “Be excellent to each other.”

    If you follow that you can get away with just about anything!

  4. We like tip jars.

    We don’t enforce them.

    Hi doc.

    cross-posting at dkos is pretty normal around here.  What isn’t normal are nasty comments and intolerance for opposing points of view.  This is an eclectic site requiring no vows of loyalty to Democrats, Obama, or anything else.   Hello and welcome.

    Very glad to see you here!

    Others have explained the rules of the road, so I have nothing to add on that score.  Not that I’m an admin or anything, either.  I’m almost as new here as you are.

  5. Nice to see you here.

    Others have “explained” nicely, dont have much to add. Be aware that it is a much slower pace here, so dont be offput if your Essays dont get a lot of attention in a rapid fire kind of way.

    Hope you brought some ponies. heh.


  6. I cross post from here to dKos fairly often.  That shouldn’t be a problem.  But, I’m not an admin or anything special.

    I think you’ll find that people here, even if they disagree, are nice about it.  

  7. I will try to be faithful to the “be nice” doctrine.  I appreciate the eclectic part, because if you have read much of what I write, you know that I cover everything from Benj. Franklin to coins (I found a nice one yesterday) to science (that I think that I do rather well) to politics (that I do not think that I do very well) to satire (for which I am rarely successful, the my paradoy of Lost with Palin, Limbaugh, Hannity, McCain et al seemed to pretty popular, and  personal stuff which I might be better off not communicating.  Just expect the unexpected, and I will try to be as respectful and as nice as possible

    Thank everyone for the warm welcome.  I will try not to do duplicate entries anymore; that was my inexperience at this site showing.  I was not aware that the first one posted, but now know when a post is made.

    Warmest regards,

    Looking forward to seeing your stuff over here. I crosspost a lot, and nobody minds. I post a lot of my stuff here first…

    it’s great to see more and more names i recognize and like.

  8. Happy to see you on this site.  Will try to follow your posts and add to them when I can.  This is a more laid back site than the more fast paced DKos or some of the other blogs with lots of writers.  

    Cheers.  Hope to see you soon.

    You like it here. It has a kind of calming affect. We also love our pooties and puppies and all things great and small


    And Please wipe you feet and don’t read snark with your mouth full.

  9. I am a rep, (for a seed distribution company. I`m kidding. I`m no rep.)

    You`ll do fine & I`ll be looking forward to reading about some of your secrets.
