Hey guys, I am a trainee journalist from Cardiff University, Wales in the United Kingdom.

Just taking a quite look around the forum to understand issues that are important to Republicans in the United States today.

I run a blog ( Blog link Removed~ JStang ) and would eternally grateful if you could check it out for a couple of minutes!

In the meantime I will be looking to post around the forum, thanks!

Welcome to RO!






Hi! Welcome. :smiley: we love having new people here. Hope you enjoy your stay!


R101, do you realize that you are welcoming a lot of people who joined long ago, and are either inactive, or have "taken their little red wagon"s and gone home?


:open_mouth: haha no I didn’t know that. Sorry


When you haven’t been around for a while, I would suggest that you look at the date before responding to intro threads. And make sure the person isn’t banned, too!




Nice of you to post here.

Susanna is right, they are inactive. But is that a problem? Do we stop responding to threads just because the original poster is inactive? hmmm…

Also, I notice that very few people ever posted a welcome in this and other introduction threads anyway. Is that perhaps why the original poster is inactive? Did they take it as a sign that this site is not very active? Why didn’t Susanna post in this thread long ago instead of now - after your post?

Good points about responding to banned people. And, outside of the Intro forum, I agree- don’t resurrect really old threads. As for the intro forum, I’d say anything in the last couple months (still front page) is fair – since not enough people welcome our newcomers in my opinion.


Yes and I guess. I’m sorry. I have no clue…


Maybe I wasn’t clear. I’m glad you posted a greeting to these people. :grin:


Well ok…thanks
