Right you are, Cargést! I have been attending this board for over 9 years now, even met a great friend-ally who I lived with, and still communicate to this day.
As Erosion said they are many people who are just wanking off in front of others for acceptance or popularity. I, as well as I know others here, will never understand that mentality. I for one can be a very social person. I communicate ideas in PERSON very very well, and stand my ground. I enjoy what a computer can do, by I am an old school kind of fellow. I enjoy the fellowship of like minded people, drink and food especially!
As we speak I am going to enjoy a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout. I am sure you are familiar with this, Cargèst? And if you know off hand of a couple great stouts I would be grateful!
