Hi all - I was active on the old forum long LONG ago (before facebook) and enjoyed the banter and community. Moved away from my involvement in these boards as I preferred the actual connections with actual people I know on other social platforms. I do see the utility of anonymity with regard to our career issues in this truly bizarre field.

Looking forward to reconnecting with anonymous "friends" old and new!

It has been a long time, and I'm very happy to see you again - welcome back!

You want eggs with that spam?  Toast?

Good to see you here, craftyprof!

Spam check time! I was a dedicated lurker on the previous site but hoping to be more active here.

Welcome, and enjoy your new life here!

Making my mandatory first post. I was a heavy lurker and rare poster in the Chronicle forums, but I exchanged a few quips with Pry back in the day, among others. I enjoy sitting alone in the fora cafeteria watching the popular kids interact, ha ha.

It's  Charlie in the 'MTA' ! (I always wanted to say that before...)

Welcome, it's good to see your moniker again.

Greetings! I was never a super-active poster, and rarely even lurked in the last years of the Fora, but I’ve found many of the threads helpful, and enjoyed feeling like a (peripheral) part of this community. I probably won’t post too much here either, but I would like to have the potential to do so.

May I join you?
