I'm guessing its not for all the hot ladies here:-)

Just curious, what brings you here, specifically to the community board? What do you get out of it?

I'm kinda wondering what the point of all this is?

I find the discourse here to be intelligent and well-constructed. A lot of political discussions on other boards quickly devolve into trolling, name-calling and a legion of posters who are clearly paid by the parties to swing the popular opinion their way. Here it's like a quiet, private corner to have an intelligent conversation.

Yes, it largely swings left here. Maybe it's up for debate, but I think comics raised me to be liberal. Those who do argue on the right here are equally intelligent, in my opinion. Sumidor, for example, is a great addition, because he argues his points rationally and (almost) convincingly. There was one right-leaning poster whose posts were really just tantrums, but I think he has been blocked. I consider myself a centrist, but let's be honest - a centrist in Canada would be considered extremely liberal by either party in the United States.

Anyway, I enjoy this little troll-free corner of the web. I don't always respond to posts, but usually that means I'm not all that invested in the topic.




And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
