I took up EQ about a month after it started, played for a couple of years as an obnoxious shaman troll named Pusbag on the Druzzil Ro server, quit, came back briefly to the FV server at the request of Tacosid, got necro named Rednec up to 50-something and promptly burnt out again. The folks were great fun, but it took such a large chunk of my off week that I was neglecting more important matters.
I lurked here (back on the old OOT board actually) for about six months before I went and registered just so I could refute much of the liberal nonsense Smasharoo was trumpeting and haven't left. During that time I had a journal that Pusbag was keeping, but it eventually got dusty from a lack of use.
I fly a helicopter out in central California for a hospital which allows me a ton of time to hang out here and post endlessly about a lot of nothing.
These are good old souls here-- even the ones I don't agree with on anything. I haven't met any of them in person even though I live quite near several of them, but given the opportunity I'd buy them a beer and we'd have a good laugh. We bash each other endlessly for sport. So if you are ridden mercilessly like a rented Grand Canyon mule, take it as an initiation ritual and don't take offense. Everyone gets their turn.
