I just started posting over a week ago, even though my avatar said I signed up in July.
The reasons I didn’t want to reveal myself right away:
1) I wanted to acquire a decent wealth of PE knowledge reading through the numerous threads before asking questions. I’m in several message boards.it does get taxing to deal with new members, and I appreciate you guys’ patience, and I thought I’d lower the embarassment factor by studying all this common knowledge already posted, so I won’t piss off the regulars so much.
2) I wanted to do a routine for a few weeks, so I’d have at least something to discuss once I do reveal myself (questions, concerns, opinions from other readers, etc.).
3) I’m paranoid as hell and I fear friends would find me here. But I’m just being overly pessimistic and decided to get over that.
