Yeah, most web forums welcome everyone. However it's understandable that you might question that if your initial experience on the internet was in IRC (Internet Relay Chat). A lot of IRC forums are operated by 14 year old kids that exercise their supreme and unquestionable authority over everyone in the IRC channel they own by kicking out and banning anyone for the slightest reason. Of course, they only do that as long as they have plenty of people joining that channel. None of them would find such fun presiding over an empty channel. We're normal people in here (for the most part, anyway), and the top dogs that run this forum here are mature enough to have facial hair. And that usually means they have bigger issues on their minds than kicking and banning people just for the thrill and pleasure of exercising supreme and unquestionable authority.
So, welcome aboard.
(PS: You'll notice that I qualified the phrase "We're normal people" with the phrase "for the most part". That's because we're not all normal people in here. Don't get me wrong... we're all normal, but we're not all "people". I live in Canada, but I'm probably not what you'd call "a Canadian". I'm more along the line of what you'd probably think of as a "Grey" or a "space alien" or (heaven forbid) a "Martian". :rofl:
Hey, I'm not short, I'm not green, but I do live in Canada. But, under the circumstances, it wouldn't be entirely truthful to to call me "a Canadian". I prefer to live in Canada because Canada has the Aurora Borealis, (the Northern Lights) that create moving lights in the sky. So Canadians don't get all twisted out of shape if they see a moving light in the sky, and that makes my job a lot easier. Also, truth be told, Canadians make better beer, better hockey and better abductees than Americans do. So, trust me when I say that everyone in here is "normal", and it's prolly best just to leave it at that.)
