    I’ve met so many JCers in person now that if I made a list, I’m afraid I’d leave someone out. Plus I think I can only tag ten people in a post and there are more than ten of you. Anyway, love y’all and I can’t wait to see you in Anaheim next year.

    I’ve learned about a lot of new beers.

    I learned how to pronounce “cosplay” at the 2017 Celebration.

    I’ve moved away from my Gen X Cold War fearmongering upbringing thanks to the communists here.

    I’ve gotten introduced to a lot of new podcasts which have become favorites like Best of the Left and Democracy Now.


    IOW this.

    So long as you understand communism is still ridiculous, no matter how un-Soviet these people are!

    I remember you too Watto! However, I never got banned so there must have been someone else with a similar name. One of my last posts there got a lot of hate because I spoiled myself on the ending of a marvel SW comic in the store and didn't buy it. Didn't bother pointing out I got 3 or 4 other comics and shopped there regularly. Not worth arguing.

    I once rang a Walmart to ask for a neckbeard who eats at Denny's. I have been dependent on the Mental Health Support thread ever since.

    If you didn't get banned, I was probably the fall guy.

    Yeah there was a lot of arguing about insignificant stuff in Lit. Maybe there still is? I have no idea, I haven't been there in over ten years. I stopped going when I stopped reading the books, which was when Karin Traviss was the #1 author.

    It's because I'm highly intelligent. Not because I'm a nerd whose brain stores useless trivia I've long since stopped caring about.

    I keep coming back after leaving so I don't know. I've tried to find other boards, yet I still end up here.

    I used to post in Lit. Then I also stopped reading the books. I believe I lurked here for quite a while. I tried to figure out if I could take it was someone inevitably didn't agree with one of my posts. I like that people here are honest and stand up for what they believe in. I'm also hyper sensitive. Coming here helps me work on my sensitivity.

    I have learned a lot of things from this place:

    - how sleeping on the floor is the most honorable
    - why we should respect and appreciate the romanovs
    - how to download new video cards
    - the proper use of paper cups
    - the value of imdb credits
    - not to use derogatory terms like fanboy
    - that lending $14k to a roomie can never backfire

    And so much more.

    This is just the board at large, but as much as I absolutely suck at writing and typing due to my dyslexia. It used to be so much worse. And I contribute this board more than anything else towards my writing skills sucking just a bit less.

    The difference between Muslims and Islams. It was quite the personal journey for myself.

    I spend, and have spent, way more money than my wages really allow to go to the US to meet up with a bunch of you at Celebrations. To be honest I don't care that much about the conventions anymore, I'm there to meet you all.

    Also coming to the boards as a shy teenager, this was the place where I first realised that there were people out there that would listen to me and that there are more nerds than I could ever imagine. I definitely gained a lot of confidence by posting here.

    It’s frightening how human the Wocky bot is becoming. It can now mimic nostalgia and other human emotions.
