I think many come here to vent about the frustrations of their job. Some come here because they are lonely. Some come here to enjoy the back and forth of discussion. Some come here to post ad hominem attacks on UpState. Some take it a step further and come here for mirth and general enjoyment. The last is the main reason I come back ... it is rather entertaining and quite amusing. I think I have learned more about human nature on here than I have working at UPS for almost 40 years. It is more primal, even primeval at times, and more honest than the real world (except for Current Events). It also reenforces the futility of changing big things, so one tends to develop a sardonic response to the insidious evil of these banal discussions. Sort of like an interactive Seinfeld episode. It is what it is. Why do you come here? After a period of time, I will set up a Poll so we can stand in relation to the overall BC Community. Added reasons: BC exposes me to aspects of UPS I would never experience in my UPS world.
