My name is Neurotik. In a little bit your thread will likely get moved since it’s in the wrong forum, FYI. Not a big deal, it happens - even to the veteran members.
There’s no right answer regarding the nature of the board that can be summed up in a simple post. I recommend you just post around during your free month and see if you like the conversations that crop up and the personalities that populate the board. If you feel like it’s worth it at the end of the month, sign up. If you don’t, then, um, don’t.
Oops, misleading title.
I had intended to ask if anyone here knew any ‘absolute truths’, became frustrated with my wording, and posted my generic questions above as is.
Personally I have embraced my own ignorance. I am skeptical of what passes for knowledge. Information passed between humans is generally skewed by ones own perspective. Words can be ambiguous.
But are there any ‘absolute truths’ that can be agreed upon as the truth by all?
Absolute truths? I really doubt it. Think you are going to have search long and hard, probably into the dark depths of the internet, or maybe even a book or something to find one of them. Is it worth $15? Well judging by the fact that we all have “member” under our name we are probably going to say yes.
I’m a guest, too, contemplating the same investment. I, personally, don’t feel as well-read or well-thought as these folks, so I’m usually rather intimidated to jump into the debates, but I feel like someday, after reading and learning a bunch, I’ll want to be a smarty-pants, too.
