Introductions and Interests is the place to formally introduce yourself to the Free-Net community. The purpose of this group is to facilitate the formation of Communities of Interest--to put you in touch with other people who share your interests and have fun. To use this SIG, simply post a message in the newsgroup (menu choice #2). In you message, explain your hobbies and interests, your likes and dislikes. Go into details, ramble on, if that's you. If you like wind surfing, then say what it is about wind surfing you like. This may not seem important now, but when there's 10,000 folks on the Victoria Free-Net, little details will help distinguish you from the hundreds of others who might also share that hobby. Communities of interest can span gender, age, race, and geographic boundaries. So, avoid stating preferences for these attributes. After all, in the Free-Net community, these attributes are invisible anyway. Gray-haired grannies can hob-nob with green-haired teens, if they both say, raise herbs on their balconies. This is part of the beauty of on- line communications. If you, by chance, find True Love through your electronic correspondence, that's great. But this is not a dating service. So, please bear that in mind. A list of local "singles" services (for the consenting adults out there) will be on-line soon. All people of all ages are invited to introduce themselves here. JUST A REMINDER. Never post someone else's personal information, like his or her phone number or address. Aside from it being a nasty invasion of privacy, it is a sensible rule you agreed to when you got your Free-Net account. By the way, posting your OWN phone number and/or address is generally not a good idea--unless you like being hassled by complete strangers trying to sell you insurance, burglarize your home, etc. Creative and constructive comments are always welcome.
