Scr*w fear. I'm personally long since done with that. Keeps me from having
good-hearted fun.

Great idea. Especially for someone new like me. At the beginning of my
first meeting, I kept saying I'm lost. I still am. But now I'm having fun
being lost. Can't wait til my first weekend event. What are those things

I was scared when I first got on the net. I was smart enough to wait to
watch the movie 'The Net' til after I'd been on a while. To take advantage
of the benefits of the net, you can't sit in the corner scared to say
anything. Notice in my address I announce who I am.
