As a newbie to AN, I am still trying desperately to figure out what I need to know. This site has become my crack and I keep kicking myself for not finding it sooner. After trying to search through the mountains of diaries, I have come to the conclusion that maybe I should take a chance and post one myself.
I know that a lot of you have been here since the beginning of this site, which is very cool. You have also been very supportive towards new members, which is very appreciated. My only complaint is that it is hard to get into discussions when you have no idea why there is poop being flung and why the players are locked in a basement.
So for me and all the other newcomers, I was hoping that everyone could help out and give us some insight to the nuances of the AN lingo and users. Why is Swisher called "Porn"? Why is everyone throwing chairs? Anything that you would like to add, including stuff about yourselves would be appreciated. Of course, if this had been done before, please direct me towards the exit.
