After inadvertently stumbling across the forums I thought I'd take a moment or two to take a peek around...until I found with each passing day a "moment or two" had grown into a time period of more significance. Finally that thought that had been nagging in the back of my mind, the thought that I tried so desperately hard to bury in the deepest depth of my cerebrum, came bursting forth with a crystalline realisation...

*stands up*

Hi, I'm Copper and I'm a lurker. *blush*

I thought it past due when I should stop my shameful lurking ways, come out of the woodwork and register; bringing me here where I can publicly acknowledge my past bad habit and start the process of reformation by firstly making my presence known and secondly participating.

On a more serious note - the time I spent lurking I read some great posts from a variety of posters. The community looks to be both fun and friendly.

Welcome!
No worries, lurking is a good thing. Gives you time to get to know the lay of the land and not be stricken with foot-in-mouth disease.
(Or get yourself inadvertently banned like everyone in the forums did a few days ago )

Have fun!

Oh, yes, Copper -we were banned by the thousands the other day...but we are a thick skinned crowd, and they can't seem to get rid of us.
[ Sorry, Sue. It's just too funny ]

Welcome to the boards. Always glad to see an able communicator wander in.

Hello Copper !

As one of the not-so-able communicators all I can say is: Welcome to the Forums!

Oh come on, I only banned 15,207 members including the founder and owner of the site!

Copper, a very big welcome from me. You will be pleased to hear, in fact everyone will be, that Terry has taken away my button! Now if I want to ban everyone I will have to do it one by one instead of at one click of the button.

Hi Copper. And don't worry about Sue, she has these senior moments every now and then.
Runs away ducking very low.

Hello Copper, keep lurking - you would be amazed at what you find out when you do. I just found out I was banned too and I thought it was a glitch on my lap top. Thanks Sue!

Thank you all very much for the warm welcome. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

I'm glad I chose the day after everyone was (accidentally) touched with the ban-stick...I might have thought being banned after my initial post was an odd way of welcoming a newbie otherwise.
