Another Newcomer Joins the Fray

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Nice to join you here. I've been coming to this forum on and off for a couple years now. It often appeared when I would Google some topic. I figured I would join now, mostly to say thanks to a couple posters who have said things I found very illuminating, inspiring, or even entertaining. I may not post often, but I hope to be a good contribution to the community when I do.


May we all prosper,

sorry for the long delay in approval


Welcome to the Dao Bums.  A wonderful forum to learn, discuss and cultivate.  Below are 3 important sections: Our Rules, The Insult Policy and our 3 Foundations.  Before you join give them a read. 


Most of it boils down to being respectful.  No name calling or trolling.  Post as if your mom's looking over your shoulder.  Discussion and arguments are what the board is about.  Keep it civil, don't get personal.  Don't be a troll or one issue zealot. 


We're here for good conversation and make some friend along the way, to be a community.  Jump right in, start threads asking questions, look for interesting threads and post your (relevant) thoughts. 


For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.


Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,


Michael and the TDB team

Our Insult Policy- Read it, Live it




Welcome, don't hesitate to be involved and ask questions and join in discussion.  Life is best as a participation game.
