Here goes Nothing

Post by Ashwrs21 » Mon Nov 22, 2021 5:39 pm

Greetings and Salutations. A friend of mine kept raving about GBN. Needless to say I was very intrigued. After reading rules and policies I honestly was a little intimidated. However, after reading discussions and topics I fell more at ease to "get the ball rolling." After exploring and reviewing all GBN has to offer one point that seemed to trend the most was the lack of tolerance for ignorance. That sold it for me. I loathe stupidity.So all that being said I'd like to formally introduce myself.

Welcome aboard! It sounds like you'll do just fine here. The only time we can be a little harsh is when someone (mostly guys it turns out) shows up and tries to tell us how to run the ship. We require politeness and that's about it.

Please tell us more about yourself and how we can help.

Thank you so much for those words of encouragement

Welcome aboard.

Don't be fooled. There's still some stupidity here. Although it's in good natured ribbing.

Nice guys finish last? Yes we do! Our women always finish first. Multiple times!
