Hi my name is Justin and I am new to the forum!

I've actually been following the generational dynamics website for about three years now, but I only recently decided to join the forum. I first got interested in generational dynamics when I read Generations by Howe and Strauss 6 years ago and the Fourth Turning soon after. Both of those books got me interested in generational theory and I've been fascinated in discovering the generational cycles of different nations ever since.

I sure wish some of these people who signed up and say they are interested in generational dynamics would stick around to learn and teach as well, from the generations. No one can have learned the generational cycles of different nations that quickly and even if they had it would be interesting to see their views on so many of the great topics on this forum.

Our generation failed you and I will be the first to admit it...I am a failure when it comes to raising our future. Thank you for such a refreshing outlook.

I could be wrong, but I think that both of these "Sara's" are bots.
It would be nice if they proved me wrong.

Being a forum administrator is not the glamorous role that it appears
to be. I get bots, trolls and spam almost every day. If I did
nothing, then the forum would be filled with a lot of crap -- ads for
viagra, uggs, and so forth. About a year ago, I enabled the Captcha
feature, and that cut the amount of spam in half. In the case of
aleeza/sara, "she" is on my watch list, and if "she" doesn't post
anything more in the next week or so, then I'll ban "her", so she
can't change her signature field into an ad, which I have no easy way
of detecting. The same is true of Endrio and Endrio143 in other
threads.
