New to the forum and not sure where to start? Introduce yourself here and be welcomed by the community that is ILP.

This thread IS:

1) For introducing yourself if you are new to the forum
2) Welcoming new people to the ILP Community

This thread IS NOT:

1) A showcase for your endless penis wars
2) The Detrop Fan Club/Hate Club thread


Welcome aboard!

Depends what you post, where you post it, and wether or not it has 'sex' in the title... :D

Ignore the nay-sayers, stick to your guns and be original at all costs...

Lurk more. Getting to know the other posters a bit from reading what they have written and thereby learning how to better work with them can be a big help.

Hi embrace, thank yuo for the complement. Im shy cause I am currently very lonely and unfulfilled. Theirs a sadness in my heart because of the person in my life. I am tuff face to face but not so tuff with strangers cause I dont wanna be hurt.

My real reason to be here is to understand philosophy so I can empress the person in my life. Otherwise I can be a pretty tuff bitch! :D

Since this is the introductions area, I feel that I should be allowed to do at least that. I get your point Ben, but you didn't have to remove my introduction:

Hi. I'm vortical... :o

PS. yeah, sorry it got all crazy- sigh- I'll have to start my own Thrist fanclub elsewhere I'd imagine!

Welcome

Welcome to all the new people... I Thirst.

I welcome discussions with anyone regarding nearly everything. I have pretty strong views on many issues like the following: Capitalism; Communism; Trade/Labor Unions; Drugs; Religion; God; Mysticism; the Simpsons, Humor, male-female relations :wink:, and more. You will find that I can be stubborn but will reluctantly admit when I am wrong.

I look forward to debating (aka arguing) with you.

Hello, I'm Crooked Mouth.

Many of you might think I chose that name based on my avatar, but you would be wrong. It is actually derived from.... well, I'll let you figure it out.

I really enjoy a good debate, especially if I am swayed by logic to believe the opposite of what I was trying to argue. I'll talk about most things, but I'm honestly sick of discussing communism / capitalism and any topic related to. Certainly I enjoy a good god bashing every now and again.

I must say that there are some very attractive women in this forum. I'm 25 and single..... (maybe not for long, eh?)

My main point for joining is to partake in an intelligent discussion on just about anything. Though if you can't tell from my posts, I am sarcastic and enjoy throwing small tid-bits of pop culture in to spice things up. Enjoy.

hey hey, im undercover_prankstar as you can see, and i feel really young for this forum (15). I live in New Zealand and I enjoy my time on ILP talking to people who really care about life's deep secrets instead of just going on about makeup and hair and nailpolish
nothin wrong with those things in their place but as obsessions...?
I love abstract ideas, anything original and as for my directions- pretty open apart from the fact that I'll spend at least some of my life playing the piano in concert halls...

Hello everyone. I am Thornwyck, obviously new here. :D
I am not cute, nor cuddly lol. I am disabled with a lovely wife who is disabled as well. Mentally however, I remain sharp as a razor. It is a pleasure to meet you all. (Bows.)
By the way, Welcome Prankster. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders. In regards to age: there are wise people and wilfully stupid people of every age, so worry not. 8)

Hoo hoo! I'm new and not new. I used to hang out daily (not literally) at ILP about 2 years ago. Thought I'd come back and sniff around, see what or who has changed.

For the benefit of those I don't know: hello, my name is tkingdoll and I am a tee-totaller.

I'm also from Birmingham, UK, but please don't hate me for it.

Nice to meet you all in this self-introduction thread.

Hmm... Hadn't realized there were so many kids on ILP. :oops: Not that we mind discussing philosophy with kids, in fact we used to teach an ESL class here in Nagasai, Japan using A Young Person's Guide to Philosophy "I Think Therefore I Am" by Jeremy Weate - Macmillan Languagehouse as our textbook; :D however, it does seem to us that although we're championing more open relations between adults and kids as a means of protecting them from potentially exploitative game site policy, our previous two posts in the Philosophy and Essay threads were more suitable for comment by adult philosophers 8)
Sadly, none have chosen to reply, leaving us rather at a loss as to what, if anything, we should post here next? :roll:

O don't worry about that. I am not an "old" member, but it is not bad if people don't notice something you've written. Maybe all of them simply find your posts so interesting that they thought it'd be useless to add any commentary.

What is an "adult" philosopher
I consider myself to be a philosopher (some of you here may disagree), a rather radical philosopher. But sometimes I don't think I am more intelligent than a child.

And compared to 99% of Internet pages, ILP is a most!

Welcome, ESSHOC, to you and to all the other new members!

haha! Well, I am new, love philosophy, just graduated highschool in Houston, TX and am usually called VERY cute. I have a strong belief in education--I am beginning my college education at Carelton in Minnesota next year with plans of eventually becoming a college professor. I like to talk philosophy, politics, current events, literature and science (though it is not my strong suit). My other interests include basketball,and music (singing and drums), which i participated in in highschool.

Nice to meet everybody.
