I got here from some forgotten corner. Never been a part of atheist forums. But also here pretty long (although I just lurked for a year or two)

I mean, everyone in my family has been atheist for generations and decades so it's not a thing.

Translation: Q was an atheist before it was cool.

I think the turning point for me was when I realized that not only did I not know what many of my friends here believed in, I didn't care either.

I wasn't raised religious, and it was an issue every now and again, but I didn't think about it much otherwise.

But I joined IIDB about a year after 9/11 where it seemed like my every social circle was being infested with proselytizers talking about how non-Christians should leave their 'Murica.

I mostly stuck around for the non-religion parts.

Is City of Heroes a thing anymore? I thought it was closed down. I was just thinking about how much I enjoyed that game the other day.

^what my Bort said.

Like all great superheroes, it couldn't have come back at a better time. Being able to create and *be* a hero again has been a lifesaver during this past year

That rings a faint bell. About the same reason I found the place. Suddenly I felt threatened for the way I'd always been.

Bah this thrad made me log in and EVERYTHING just so I can remember how I was absolutely decimated by the IIDB userbase for a post. I couldn't even tell you what the post was about but I sure can tell you that IIDB in 2003/2004 was NOT a friendly place for a budding atheist to ask questions.

Also I'm coming up on my 16th year here. Whoa.
