After my first computer purchase, it was a while before I chose to "log in". I remember logging in on a Tuesday and I was homeless by Friday! Due to life stresses, it was a while before I was able to post an intro. I was busy with home repair. During that period, my forum time was very limited and precious. When things improved, it was with great joy I finally had time to post an intro and soon joined the foundation. These things are not mandatory, but I've found out why they are so helpful.
As I have explored the internet dating scene, I reject all without a picture. My thoughts are what are they trying to hide? An intro is like a picture showing who you are, not a biography but your general location and just a little about you. Privacy is respected, so be sensible.
This forum consists of a respectable mixture of survival masters, instructors, students, and beginners. An introduction gives everyone an idea of your level of expertise. We have some very interesting people here who want to be your friends. Its all about strangers becoming internet friends. Most importantly, an intro helps weed out predators [forum flamers], those who would compromise the integrity of this forum and all whom are associated with it. These people will be dealt with when identified! Even if you never post, its nice knowing who's watching!
I'd like to thank the moderators who've helped me with "computer stupid" questions like using the enter key to separate paragraphs!
You should find your forum experience to be both entertaining and most informative as I have. You know, just like the videos! Remember, an intro is just a simple tool to turn a stranger into a friend!
