Can I just say, I am so so grateful to have found this community. I was losing my mind on Twitter. I've self-censored practically everything on Facebook. Who knows how long we can count on YouTube. I was getting a bit concerned for the future of the whole internet experiment, what with the big companies all but owning us.
I'm not a fringe person by any means and I'm usually the last to find out about the cool new place to be. I stay to myself and try to raise my family in peace. These days, the world is spinning out of control and it's so hard to find people to talk to because it seems like everyone's scared to say the "wrong" thing.
So I guess this is my "Hello!" to you all. I'm just happy to be here.
