8. Well I wasn't super active
But more than just a lurker anyway.

I spent years on DU mostly making throwaway comments here and there, I made the greatest page a couple of times...

But I wasn't called a troll, and my throwaway comments didn't end up before a jury.

Twice I have woken up to find that an innocent comment I had made the previous night on the new DU had been hidden by jury and my posting privelages suspended. When I checked the threads to find how I had offended, I found responses to my now-hidden comment that made me offended. But I couldn't defend myself or complain because of the nature of the system.

I finally quit.

Well I didn't quit. There are a lot of good people there still who do keep me informed like no other website. But I no longer log on and I no longer post because I am tired of being called a troll or worse.

The only reason I came back here is because I stumbled across on old link in an old browser in an old computer.

I'm glad I found it.

Its good to know there is life here.

I will try and post something interesting every once in awhile.
