    Just stopping by to say hi.

    I found my way here and hope to be able to provide some sort of perspective different from those alrfeady here because, really, who needs to hear more of what you already know?

    My abbreviated CV


    Orthodox Jew (so I'm not around on Sabbath and holidays)
    Northeast US
    Ardent Zionist
    Father
    High School English teacher (not currently ini a public school but that's where I was trained).
    43 Years old
    I have spent the last 30 or so years telecomputing. From 300 baud modems and single user BBS's ro multi user dial in boards with international gateways through the days of mosaic and netscape till today. I have been answering questions on sites for 15 years (askme, answerway, askmehelpdesk etc) talking in chatrooms (Yahoo and paltalk among others) and hanging out on forums (CL most recently) and full sites, trying to clarify, explain, inform and even amuse.

    I took a look through and saw lots of conversations in process. I'm not sure where best to jump in so unless anyone has any particular questions which play to my (self reported) expertise, I'll just lurk for a bit.

    Judaism, High School English Education and Zionism seem to tbe the most relevant. Unless you have questions about being 43.

    he said he was an ardent zionist. that means his expertise is vast...war crimes, human right abuses, occupying and stealing land from the indigenous people, killing children, ethnic cleansing and genocide. they never met an international law or convention that they were afraid to break, lying...

    zionism is the new naziism.
