I am often stopped on the street and asked, How can I join this 'forum' of yours, sam? To which I reply: First you must take the litmus test. Even Supreme Court justices do it.

Do you ride a bicycle?
It will help with some of the references

Do you possess technical expertise?
Not required

Do you have a fear of tumbleweeds?
More elbow room for ochlophobics

Do you "do" empathy?
Not to be confused with *hugs* or emoticons

Are you clannish?
There are better places for that

Can you multitask?
Type and think at the same time

Do you like Dylan?
Thomas, or Bob. Hardly a deal breaker. Just askin'

it ain't me, babe
