Most of us got here via TAF when this place was created, but we have new members that have come from different directions too. Please vote in the poll to give us an idea of the numbers.

No cheese option, sorry.

(Edit: For anyone who doesn't know - and there are far more than I ever imagined there would be - TAF is thinkingaloudforum.com - all the original members here came from there.)

We already know what this poll is going to show, I think that it would come in handy later if we do attract new members, not while we're trying to get more in here.
We have no great war, no great depression.
Our great war is a spiritual war.
Our great depression is our lives.

I made (and subsequently deleted) a comment on RDF about Jesus being well-hung, but it taking him 3 days to rise again, and was immediately pounced upon by both Charlou and Devogue by PM, enticing me to come here and play. That doesn't fit into any of the choices in the poll, seems.


Cheese.

Shit. I forgot to say, "I found it a bit crumpled, moldy and in need of a bath." :doh:

I though it might be nice to have for members to see and vote in as they arrive, and it will give us an idea of exactly how new members are arriving. I'd be surprised if we get any via google.

Actually, I found it on Google, and was specifically seeking out a forum of like-minded people when I got completely fed up with a bunch of crap I was catching from my family and some (so-called) friends about my non-religious choices. I was on Atheist Parent for a time (not getting my kids baptized is just one of the things that made me a pariah), but found this forum to be a lot more fun. And active.

And so far NOBODY here has given me shit about starting my own, polytheistic, Las Vegas-based religion. I find it cool that you're all cool with that.

I saw a link to Ratz in Spaz's sig line at RDF, and was curious enough to sign in.
Still, I most likely would not be posting at all had I not been encouraged by CJ. :flowers:

Thanks, Paco.

BTW, sombreros are my favorite type of cranial adornment. I think it dates back to my days in Chicago when an inebriated Harry Caray was reputed to say, "HEY! Check out the kid in the som-BRER-o!" (At least, that's a line that every comedian in Chicago used to imitate, so I'm assuming it happened.)
