Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Obviously helen is just my first name irl. Although since I chose that name for myself just a few years ago, how that happened is probably a story in itself.

My email addy is a sort of cross between "queenie" and (motorbike) rider.

Plus, I really wanted to underline my gender status, especially as I'm aware I have a very male persona so I wanted no confusions. Such things matter to me more than they should.

Am I the sarcastic dystopian misanthrope I appear on this site ? Sadly yes, mostly I am...and worse. Some people have felt that rough edge on here too, but generally I need a lot more provocation here than I do in reality, mostly I keep that part of me back.

It's funny how several people have said they feel more considered and intelligent here. I wish. Compared to some people here I feel ignorant and stupid: Worse, a lot of the time they have the opportunity to prove it.

I don't know how you say that. I'm often astounded at the scope of your knowledge.

most definitely agreed.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

You should listen to her in person, where you can see the sparkplugs firing (should that be synapses firing?) behind the eyes.

Jeez Helen, what a negative self-image! For someone who keeps to the Fen Causeway  you shouldn't be mired but admired!  We'll all have to work on your self-esteem.  I think your comments have been very well conceived, considered and presented

I'd always meant to ask you about your email address, I had a theory which now looks utterly wrong. ;-)
