Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 I subscribe to all of the above by afew with this sole exception, noted:

  "...perhaps you should do as you say and go. "

  I don't really think you're expecting pay for your time here so my view is that, really, you ought to stick around and contribute as much as you can and want to; and when your posts don't draw the attention and the reaction they deserve, try, try again and try not to take it too personally.

 I have a lot of respect for most of what you write.

  To accuse people here of cynicism is one of the most outrageously funny and absurd allegations I've seen in quite a while.

  You think about it a moment: we come here, we debate, we take each other seriously when no one else beyond our personal circle of associates does, we care about the political life of the society in which we live--care about it so much that we spend hours reading, considering, writing, arguing and thinking some more.

   If that qualifies as what cynical people do, then I'm a cocked hat!

  The high-muckety-mucks you have the "privilege" to frequent--they're principals in "We'll fuck up the world for fun and profit, Inc."  so, if you can influence them, then please, by all means, do so.  But I have no interest or intention in lending any of my all-too-tiny support to their efforts.

  I'm a four-star outsider because among other things, I refuse the price of admission to the club even if an entry were possible, which it clearly isn't.
