Oh... BTW, there will be a fair share of nonsense at times. It just depending on the topic, your view, and who's online and sees the weird rabbit trail your thread has taken and decides to join in.
. Some comes in a humorous spirit, some not. It's a forum and to be expected with so many different personalities and perspectives.
On a more positive note, there are also many who will offer a sincere piece of advice if needed. Many who will challenge your thinking on things, which is a good thing if you are looking to learn and grow your view of the world. Throwing yourself into any forum requires a certain thickness of skin to be able to maintain and stay. Thin skinned people don't last long at all. If you have thin skin, I suggest you start working on thickening it up a bit.
