First ten post introduction.

Hello. I have been lurking on DU since 2006, when I was a junior in college. One of my lab partners at our university showed me this site along with Daily Kos and Crooks and Liars. Anyway, I have never been one to post much about anything. I always have been paranoid of something that I have written coming back to bite me in the 6 oíclock. I donít have Facebook or any other social media. I am in the minority in my age group for my lack of online presence. But I am slowly coming out of shell, so to speak. So hopefully Iíll contribute something somewhere that will help someone make an informed decision.

Thanks!

15. I got some last week!

My wife found a pair in a joke (ish) shop that are very smart looking. But if you pull up your trousers, it reveals the words ďThis Meeting is Bull$h#%Ē. Except it isnít censored on the real socks. I wore them to a mgmt mandatory meeting that was scheduled -once again- on my RDO (regular day off), and made sure a few of my colleagues laughed when they saw them.

5. Welcome

Glad you joined. Lurked for years signed on recently.

Your smart to keep a low profile with social media.

Oh, and it is not unwise to be careful about your online presence.

7. Thanks!

I have witnessed all the online (and in-person) relations and have felt that most of the regulars here are very warm, caring, and awesome people - people that I would totally hang out with in real life. You folks are awesome.

Also, smart as hell. I have learned a great deal here.

18. I wasn't very smart about first posting here.

I wasn't even aware of where I was posting. But I read an OP about an issue that is near to me and when I tried to respond I was prompted to make an account. So I did and then poured my heart out.

I really lucked out that I happened to be in a women's group where the DUers took me in like I was a long lost family member. It felt like I had found my way home and I haven't left since that day (in 2006).

Welcome, Vdizzle. I'm glad you've taken the, kind of, scary first step to register and start posting. You're going to fit right in. I look forward to reading what you've got to say.

19. Welcome to the happy place....

Iíve been on DU since 07 myself and though I tend to read a lot, I donít post much. Most of my posts in the last 12 years have been here. The Lounge as always been a friendly, fun loving, supporting community of crazy genii....you know, good people.

22. Well if you've been lurking since 2006, you know it CAN become a bit heated during primaries

and elections. Other than that we're a pretty amicable group and love to have new active members.

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome!!!
