Long Time Lurker

Hey there.

I've been around DU as a reader since the early 2000's: I remember the "view from the other side" humor column and the Hate Mailbag (damn, that was some funny stuff!). I discovered DU via Bartcop.com (RIP, my friend!). It's only been recently that I registered and started posting however: I tend to shy away from public, political discussions because of the nature of my job. I'd hate for something I said to be traced back to me IRL and bite me in the ass (it's happened to someone I know personally).

14. Welcome, from one "newbie" to another.

I lurked for about three years, rarely missing a day, but I hesitated to join. Now, I don't know why I waited.

16. Time to quit lurking

and start working...

You're protected by the First Amendment, with limitations, of course. You should be fine.

18. Welcome. And advice: hope you have your own computer at home

from where you can log and post.

NEVER NEVER use company provided computer, and cell phone, for personal use.

Not just for DU, google search, any other searches.

And now surf away.
