But you're always who you are to everybody else on the forum, you're never tarnished no matter the positions you take -- hell I advocated Jimmy Clausen a couple years ago with the #5 overall pick. That is not an opinion that haunts me.

Some time in 2007, I started posting in DC sporatically. I post on a couple political forums and the DC forum is a smaller version of those boards. Sometime starting around the spring of 2008, I started posting there regularly, as much as I was during any forum.

Immediately, my entire relationship with ChiefsPlanet changed. Even as I'd float to other forums to post my takes on whatever was being featured, my liberalism has been regularly brought up without prompting from some of the forum's more "colorful" characters. The immediate repulsion some folks displayed to me in response to my opinions immediately retreated my ChiefsPlanet persona to total privacy; I don't discuss my personal life anymore on this forum.

I used to -- I even went to a ChiefsPlanet party at Phobia's place a long time ago. But personal information in DC is only used as ammunition against you, so that's a determination I decided to make.

My increased participation and enjoyment in DC has come with a pricetag as a result. I've often considered starting another username and just having that username being the personal me while this username remains the political me in DC.

I'm not complaining, really. I've found my niche on CP. I just love communication dynamics and social theory, and these are the decisions I've made to make my posting on ChiefsPlanet as maximally enjoyable and minimally unenjoyable. To hold what's been my path on this board up to social theory is fascinating.
I remember meeting you at that party at Phobia's and you were a quiet guy. Nothing like the poster we see now. heh
