    Hello, again.

    I've been gone for quite some time. A couple of years ago I recognized that needless bickering was bleeding into many of facets of my life where it didn't need to be, so I began cutting the fat off my mental bones. This place was one of those cuts, despite the numerous relationships and beneficial conversations it also brought me.

    I'm back for a number of reasons, but one of which is because I don't have a vocal or versed enough community of people in real life to discuss new observations that have been plaguing me and I'd like some more independent feedback.

    It's been a slow build I suppose - but the general lack of intellectually honest conversations that take place in the overall public and social sphere really, really bothers me. While I may have blamed this place (or myself, rather) for certain negative aspects that it can carry, the rigor with which people are held accountable for their positions is something that I sorely miss. And I'm hoping that it hasn't changed too much and that I can find some of that again, to help purge the general onslaught of nonsense that seems to permeate this pop culture world.

    Anyway. Happy to be back.

    -Jonathan

    Edit....
    I had to check your profile.
    It turns out that we weren't enemies.
    Whew!
    I won't have to take back the cake.

    BTW, about all the bickering here.
    It pays to avoid some posters, & to exit some
    discussions that have become vexing. I find
    it really good for mental health.

    Welcome back.

    A hint to the wise - when @Viker asks us to "please press like", it's a good thing to do.

    Welcome back, Joonathan. Though, I do not remember any debate in which we participated (that is due to my old age and forgetfulness), but am sure that your participation in the forum will enrich it.
