First post!  I was mostly lurky on the old fora and will likely be pretty much the same here.  But I'll try to be a bit more active!

Hi,

I posted a fair bit in the old days (around 2010ish) then dropped into intermittent lurking.  I'm glad this place was created to take over when they shut it down over at the Chronicle.  Too many of the communities I used to enjoy have been shut down in a similar fashion and not all of them managed to make a transition like this.

Anyway, I'll probably not be a very active poster, but I like to be able to check in on teaching advice threads particularly.

Glad you made the trip!

My first post to prove I am not spam, a bot, botfly, or anything other than myself.  Thanks for letting me in.

I am a smart spambot, you cannot prove I am not human.

First post! Since everyone else is doing it... This does sound like a good system, however.

I definitely had some posts in the early days, but it has been a while...

My life-changing, highly philosophical song lyrics are waiting in the pokey.  As someone who loves instant gratification, this is hard times.

Good to see you again! I like your moniker. I am, however, partial to cirrocumulus.

First Post: I hope this system weeds out the strange spam we used to get at the CHE site...
