I was given the link to Perspectives.com and told that it was a good place for debate and had partisan boards where you could hear from like minded people, but it turned out to be a farce their progressive board was full of right-wingers pretending to be Liberals just so they could tear down any progressive voice. Their monitors (with the exception of one) were so bias and dishonest that it came to a point were I just had to say enough.  Below is what one of the friends that I made wrote to me, which says it all.  I've been watching this message board system for some time and feel that it will be the place for me.

The good people that I have met here will be remembered for a long time while the jerks are almost forgotten already.

Let me be the first to welcome you here.  Where we all have strong opinions our monitors put aside all bias when working with our members.  We look at it as working together, where sites like you mention let the monitors act like lords and dukes ruling over the members.  The good news for you is those types of boards are vanishing and our type of friendliness is taking over.  Welcome and if any of us can be a help to you. just ask. One thing is that you might consider a different name, some might find it to be pretentious.

As one of the resident right-wingers let me welcome you too.  We have our disagreements here too, but you'll find that we are a friendly bunch.

Mike Malloy has an expression, "Don't let the b____ (filter won't let me use that word) beat you down!"  That's what these jerks do, claim to be fair and balance while stabbing you in the back.  If you are the slightest bit articulate and able to beat their arguments, they don't want you around.  I imagine that you lit a fire under their butts with the truth and they couldn't handle it.  I'm glad that you told us about the site, I for one won't waste my time on it.  I think you will enjoy it here, people are pretty nice all in all.

Thank all of you, it means a lot especially to see a right-winger welcoming me.  It just goes to show that not all Republicans are bad.

Hi, Verumi! 
 
I'm new here, too.  I guess I would be considered a moderate to left winger.  I may disagree with you (or anybody else, for that matter!) and I will speak my piece ..... but I want you to speak your piece, too.
 
I've been on other boards ..... and the name-calling and the grade-school put-downs are such a waste of time! 
 
I hope you find what you are looking for.

I cannot tell you all how proud you make me.  Almost seven years ago I created the C -n- C with the hope of a place were people could exchange ideas in a peaceful environment.  Most of us were opposed to the new format for the message boards but I think we all would agree now that they have been an improvement over our old boards.  To AV, we are glad to have you join us.
