100 posts and what's the meaning of it all?

Last edited Thu May 9, 2013, 01:11 PM - Edit history (1)

Hello DUers,

I'm Addison, and I'm new to DU. I thought I'd check in at the 100 mark, let you know how it's gone so far, and then pose a philosophical question.

Here's a run down of my experiences so far:

- made a few snarky comments on political events.
- posted a few pieces that seemed well appreciated and garnered some views and "recs".
- learned what K&R means (and was surprised to find it's non-sexual)
- inadvertently started a small riot in the Education forum by posting a Nat Hentoff piece written for the Cato Institute that advocates asking students to evaluate their teachers.

It's been an interesting week.

But what I'm wondering is what's it all for?

Is there a point to posting? Has anyone here had their life changed, or changed someone else's life, because of a post on DU?

Just asking . . .

1. Hi Addison



My life has become richer while I've been here at DU.
I've made some very good friends, learned two or three things.
Annoyed at least half a dozen DUers.

All things considered it's been real (in an unreal/cyber world) for me at DU.

2. Hi In the Wind

Glad to hear you're thoughts on DU. I plan to stick around, and hope to follow your lead and make good friends at least as often as I annoy others.

3. hmmm

Howdy,
I lay pretty low and don't have any friends on here. However, I have found a lot of interesting information and had a lot of laughs reading some of the posts. I'm not expecting to change the world by posting here.

Peace
