This was awesome enough to finally make me unlurk and register to this forum. Having followed this thread almost from the beginning (rather spotty and skimmish-ly at first but in read-all-mode for the last couple of hundred pages) every frame made me smile. I have been on the brink of registering a couple of times now, specially when the big whiteout was under way, but most times I was a couple of... uh, pages... behind in my reading so it felt out of place. Now, however, it's time.
So, hi. There's really nothing I can say that hasn't been said by other recent unlurkers, but I really feel that I know you guys after having been riding along, invisibly, in your back seat for so long now. Also, the friendliness and lack of drama and animosity here is refreshing. Not that I'm active on any other forum on the net - I'm really a quiet kind of guy - but my girlfriend often tells about the insane dramas of her various foras and I never could stand it. So it's nice.
Another reason for my hesitation about joining is a general feeling of unworthyness. Whenever I visit the forum to read the comments on the latest comics I'm awed and slightly intimidated by the wit and linguistic elegance of the posters, and I feel that I'll never bee able to match that - since English is not my first language (other than purely alphabetically, before Swedish). But I'm ready to give it a try.
Okay, that got long winded. Time to wind down and await moderator approval on this my first breath of registered forum air.
