    Hello everyone! New here!

    Making the introductory post. I don't know why but I wrote a lengthy one before, but it didn't post (maybe because it had a link? I didn't know it was not allowed. Sorry.)

    Just a question, what does the "Then, click on "Blogs" above and start your own personal blog!" instruction mean? I looked through everywhere and I can't find the Blog thingie.

    Welcome to the garden, I fear the blog feature has been withdrawn but feel free to dive into the forums and post away

    I see. Thanks! Quite relieved, to be honest. It's much easier to participate in the forums than it is to write blogs

    There's an automated moderation process for any first post with triggering conditions, and carrying a link is one of them. We have found that most first-time posters who include a link have a commercial interest as word of mouth advertisers. To quote Wikipedia, "When targeting consumers known to be consistent Internet users, undercover marketers have taken a significant interest in leveraging Internet chat rooms and forums. In these settings, people tend to perceive everyone as peers, the semi-anonymity reduces the risk of being found out, and one marketer can personally influence a large number of people.".

    Here's an example job advert in the industry:

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
