I've been lurking on LSD for a few weeks now, and I have to say, I give it two thumbs up in the weirdest Ebert-and-Roeperish sort of way (or Siskel, for the sticklers). I'm a veteran of many a discussion forum, and this one ranks among the best. It's entertaining, informative, and (that rarity on the net) non-threatening. It seems almost devoid of trolls. Even the ones that do appear seem harmless enough and tend to be shooed away quietly.
I recently decided I'm going to shoot for law school in the United States, preferably on the West Coast. I'm a South African turned Canadian studying at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. So far, this board has been a wealth of useful tidbits and solid advice. I hope to stick around for the next year or two as I work towards my goal.
Anyway, I'm glad I found this place, and will be dropping by on a semi-regular basis (probably regular, actually - the heavier my workload gets, the more I tend to procrastinate).
