1. inconsequentia

    I mostly lurk and read threads, but here's a post to introduce myself to the community (see, that wasn't that hard).

    Greetings, other than fora I created or was a founding member of, I have always been a lurker by nature. But I’ve been here reading along for a couple of years now and I think it’s time that I just waved my hand out there, hullo! Then at least my post count won’t be at zero. I really enjoy the...

    An introduction to me

    I'm just your regular punk. An anarcho-communist/syndicalist, too. I see no future for myself in regular society, with an office job, a car, a retirement plan, etc. I would very very much like to make friends and memories all over the country and maybe even the world. I guess my end goal would...

    Proper intro

    Hey there community, I've been lurking around for quite a while so it's about time I say hi. There's nothing special about me nor there ever will be. I'm mostly wasting gods' time, but as far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter much. I have no real idea about what to do with my life, so I keep...
