The first person I recall paying particular attention to their posts was MaggieD as she seems the most practical level-headed poster on the forum to me even though I disagree with her from time to time. One of the posters I don't often agree with and think I may have blocked early on and then unblocked was Conservative. He always have links and sources and reasoned positions I can respect even if I disagree with him.

Why?

I know I have people that agree with me.

I've never thought of the internet as a tool to make "friends."

Viktyr fascinated me from our very first encounter. He was very different, but articulated himself so well with such clarity of thought, that even when I disagreed with him I was always interested in what he had to say.


Apologies to the many others I might also have mentioned, this is off the top of my head...

The fact that you are talking about weed, Mr. Nick, makes this post hilarious! :rofl

I came to DP with a large number of emigres from Politico and they were my first friends on the site but I've met many other very nice and interesting people - DP is a good place to call home.

I remember my first enemy here too - more an irritation like a blister on your heal - but after being enlessly infracted, I was introduced to the ignore function and I've found the cure to irritation is just a few keystrokes away.

Thankyou.

I have been waiting all my life for a woman to think of me as the bad boy.

Finally!!

I followed a few friends over here from PCF, so I already knew Di, Thrilla, Tech and a few others. I think the first person who was nice to me was Maggie. She and I usually see eye to eye on most things. The first person who was mean to me was Oscar. :lol:

I do remember the first person to send me a friends request, because I found it surprising. :lol: I was still new to online discussion forums, and I received a request from Kali, then when I read some of her posts, I was puzzled as to why she would like me, because we so rarely seem to agree. She's a sweetheart, though, which I came to realize after I got to know her through her posts. Very sensitive and sweet.

I'm getting hot just thinking about that!

If I remember correctly the first friend request was TGND. There was also a user from the site I came from who has managed to get banned wherever he goes.

I haven't been here long enough to offend anyone, so all posters seem like friends.
No one has actually threatened to strangle me....yet.
Although I suspect my fellow Californian, Apacherat, might want to.
My only two official friends, Solaris and Foghit, are currently on hiatus...maybe I offended them.:)
