Please go to your preferences page and make sure your "See Mature Topics" setting is set. Setting it to "Yes" means you see the Mature Topics forum (contains political and religious debates). Setting it to "No" means you do not see those threads.
Hi Jack! Please take a look around if you haven't had the chance yet, and when you are comfortable, jump right in! You will find that we are a pretty diverse group that rewards being honest (with yourself and others) and we love to talk about alot of different things (including diapers, believe it or not). Take your time, but don't be afraid, we (well...most of us ) don't bite, unless asked to!
EDIT: We also like to get to know you and what you like, so if you get the chance, tell us all a little about yourself.
Hy Jack and welcome. I was nervous when I fist went on, and was a little hesitant to share. Now I've become completely boring and repetitive, so you will get more comfortable with the whole thing over time.
