    There's no point in beating around the bush; let's be candid. There've been some stability and functionality issues on Political Forum for quite some time now, and one of the results of that is that a number of posters became disenchanted with the forums and moved on to other discussion boards. We've been working very hard behind the scenes for months now to correct those performance issues and restore Political Forum to its rightful position as the absolute preeminent political discussion forum on the internet, and as we've reestablished stability we're seeing more and more of those posters migrating back. We thought this thread would be a good venue for some of those who've been gone a while to reintroduce themselves to old friends, and say hello to newer posters who may not remember them.

    So, have at it. For those of you who've been away for a while, tell us a little bit about who you are and what you're about. Don't be shy - kick that door down, yell "Honey, I'm home!", and give us all a chance to properly welcome you back!

    Please note - this is the official "welcome back" thread. Any returning member who reintroduces themselves in one of the unofficial threads does so at their own risk, as their welcome may not be considered valid.

    Repentance is for sinners and fools.

    Ah ... that explains why the board turned into 'The Conspiracy Nutjobs Forum', and not like I originally remembered it to be.

    Fortunately, more and more good posters are finding their way back. It may take a little while, but we'll get the place back in shape again. The more good posters come back, the more the tone shifts back toward a more civil, productive environment. We'll get there.

    Hello there. I originally joined in early 2012, but became quickly disenchanted. Now, when I come back, my posts are being moderated as if I'm new. Oh well, rules are rules. I see you still don't have a threaded view.

    I realize this thread is for "Returning Members," but wanted to point to something I notice on occasion.

    New members sometime ask why their post are delayed in viewing. Perhaps the answer is written somewhere, and I have just never read it, but...



    New Members...

    All members initial 10 (ten) post, are subject to review by Mods prior to posting. This is to help ensure elimination of spam and/or sock accounts. Although perhaps a slight inconvenience at first, it is necessary for the overall good of the forum.

    After the initial 10, your post will be immediately viewable. :)

    *Sorry this out of place. Didn't know where to put it.*

    I'm back.
    I have been deleted from a different forum and landed here for now.

    I am a liberal libertarian, a rare breed indeed, but I yam what I yam.

    A very rare breed indeed. :wink: But so much better than conservative libertarians.

    I stopped coming on the forum simply because the technical issues were so bad it got to the point when I could only post probably ~10% of the time that I wanted to post. Everything seems to be fixed now.
