Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The salt of ET is its unpredictability and generally good level of discussions which is extremely rare even in professionals discussion as far as I know.

Most people here do not post too much but try to present some valuable ideas and information to others - even in ordinary comments, that's why it is not degenerated into banal mud-slinging which is the order of the day in majority of MSM outlets and popular forums like DK.

About "fit in" - I think there's absolutely no need to fit in discussions - we retain our individuality without taking contrary views as personal assaults on our integrity and just move on.

"Frustrated academics, journalists.." - no absolutely. I can speak of myself - my job has almost no relation to what I am writing about. I do not care to press for my ideas - they may be accepted or ignored, whatever.
