Yes, this sort of began on another thread, but I think it deserves a life of its own. So... introduce someone from A2K to endear the new people to the existing A2K-ers.

I've already introduced Chai and she's already introduced me, so now it's up to you. I say djjd or edgarblythe should go first.

i'm game, OmSigDavid is one of my favourite posters, he writes real funny (not humourous, at least not intentionally, just funny)

i think you guys will like him (just don't bring up G-U-N-S)

@djjd62,
And Osso is an Italiana-wanna-be Smile She's had a zillion careers and digresses continually, so much so that you lose where you are in her paragraphs. I just skim her posts now, looking for "Italy", "pasta", "anchovies"... you get the drift.

engineer is a poster who makes his point in the most economical way. He wastes no words and all are potent. very thoughtful.

spendius is a barfly in some forgotten prairie in England. He seems to have a decent literary foundation though.

O

who knows what he'll call himself next, but i'm guessing it will end in 3 letters

@failures art,
Drewdad just recently had a new addition to his family. He also great with answering computer related questions. I think he's even got a red ribbon for it.

Dutchy - a2k puzzle master extraordinaire.

Letty is a Southern Belle who runs the WA2K radio thread.
For every emotion, devotion or commotion, she has the song.

@George,
I said this in another thread -

Keep an eye out for Roger. I think he may be our most trenchant poster, saying the most with the least words, whatever the subject.

dyslexia is a complex individual, who can strike you as flippant for a moment, until you begin to suspect his deeper meaning. He has the intellect and background to hold his own in a good discussion, but will turn around and offer observations on food and gardens. I view him as a humanitarian. He is also known to be flippant when the mood strikes.

Mame is a throw it to the wall kinda gal. No need to bullshit, no need to fluff it up, live clear, live happy and have fun, or leave her alone.

shewolfnm is quite possibly the real-est entity on these pages. She had the rare quality of being the finest of artists while she deals with cold concrete matters of daily living.
Oh, and she is one fabulous babe.

@Joe Nation,
Joe Nation is an absolute honey.

He combines fabulous writing skills, gut-wrenching honesty and searing self-analysis with a gentle and whimsical humour and self-deprecation.

He is also a marathon man and a goddam fine Mensch.

His only fault is that he still hasn't posted on my New York thread, and I fear greatly I will not get to meet him.

@dlowan,
Msolga is possibly the most popular Ozzian on the board.

She combines steely political commitment with a commitment to reasoned and nuanced discourse.

She also has a delightful range of interests from the sublime (eg animal welfare and social justice) to the homiest and earthiest of joys (eg cooking and gardening .)

Her presence here is a lovely gentle and compassionate one, as well one laced with humour and wisdom.
