Default Found It!

All you have to do is open every door - sooner or later, you'll find the bathroom. Of course, you may have to do a lot of apologizing along the way and that can slow you down, and at my age.... well.

Formalities.
1. How'd you find the Freethought Forum?
- I followed davidm because I liked his acceptance speech.

2. Are you a member of any other online forums? Which?
- Most of 'em, including some extinct ones.

3. How do you feel about smilies (emoticons)?
- Rarely use them, but am often entertained by them. Or repelled.

4. How do you feel about 3500+ smilies?
- The same way I feel about 350 flavours of potato chip.

5. Is flaming: A. Hilarious B. Beneath you C. Irritating as fuck
- C minus: just irritating

6. Is vulgar language: A. Hilarious B. Beneath you C. Irritating as fuck
- C minus

7. Why did the chicken cross the road?
- She didn't. The Trumpites are spreading disinformation about the chicken because they're afraid she'll win.

8. Who pays for your food?
- The wonderful Canadian government. But I earn my beer money.

9. What's one thing you've always wanted to do but never have?
- Own a horse.

10. What is your single favorite place in the world?
- Tough one! Probably a thicket of aspens in the abandoned gravel pit behind our house. Also the Bulk Barn.

11. What's the significance of your username?
- Dearth of imagination. I get called moron on a lot of forums, by people who wouldn't know either an ox from a water-buffalo, or an internal contradiction from a begged question, or burgundy from claret. So I rolled it into a single mellifluous verbal jest.

12. What about your avatar?
- I don't know how to make one.

Informalities:
I'm opinionated and isolated. Need a vent!
Plus, I'm hoping to stave off Alzheimer's.

No harm* in repeating myself:

:welcome3:

* OK, obviously that smilie is monstrous and would have been outlawed by the Geneva Convention if they had considered emoticons as weapons. But it is an :ff: tradition of sorts.

Since I haven't officially welcomed you yet, allow me to present you with the second most grotesque welcome smiley: :welcome4:

That is how we show appreciation here.

And sorry about the swears.

It's quite an entertaining one, actually. Sour cream and chive on the chip scale.

No biggie; it's everywhere. Just yesterday, my SO remarked as how frequenting internet forums has coarsened my speech. What - just because I told somebody to take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut?
But, hey, you probably have an emoticon for that.

Click on the chicken in the reply box and search for whatever you need. I'm not big on pictograms either, but it is crazy how many we have.

And it looks like we actually do have a loose-fitting emoticon for that.

I was ready to welcome our new burgundy bovine, but find the lack of avatar too distressing to quite sustain a coherent civil social convention.

But yet a pre-emptive WELCOME! for whenever you decide to disassociate from the company of avatarless freaks and botzoids.

Nice! I could walk a mile -- well, okay, a couple of hundred feet - in two of those.

Now, if any of you savvy types would like to help a distechlic dotard to produce, procure or purloin an avatar, I'd be even more grateful.

If you have an idea of what you want, or have something you like one of us kindlier folks can halp.

Most simply:

Click on the User Tools menu up there.
Select Edit Profile

Along the left column choose Edit Avatar

Scooch down to Custom Avatar.

The Best option is to upload an image you already have.

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 3.81 MB (whichever is smaller).

Choose Save Changes and you are now among the avatarists.

And possibly even remove white backgrounds, if applicable. Not that the person most concerned about that is here any more.
