thank you for being here and showing me that there is, in fact, a sense of community among steampunkers.
I came from the anime fandom, where there is 'community' that fades as soon as one walks away, and I was afraid to end up in something similar, or worse, a communityless thing, when i made the definite switch.
thank you, for giving me people to look up to. for the feedback. for simply being here and posting.

now, may that sound like a goodbye letter...too bad, I'm staying  Wink
I just wanted to shout this out to everyone.
and if it's too personal or just doesn't belong on the forums, I don't care if it's deleted.

but I wanted you to know.

I sir, am a gentlemen. Never on a first hug. (maybe the second, but only if things are going really really well and even then only with permission AND it is exceptionally presumptuous to automatically assume the addition of baby oil.)

We are civilized human beings not animals. Unless of course your in a fur pile then Shamanistic animal channeling is allowed.

I like the term Netherlander. For it sounds rugged and capable. Cheesy
