Welcome to AMA. Within in this community you will find an unparalleled variety of questions, and answers, from users of all conceivable persuasions. From compassion to criticism, politics to philosophy, hardship to humour, and sex to salvation, we've got the answers you want and need.
There's an IRC channel for the community I strongly recommend you lurk in - it's on the server irc.darkmyst.org, the channel is called #ama. If you're not sure how to get there, try downloading mIRC, and read the instructions carefully. If all else fails, you can use Darkmyst's webchat, located here. For some fun statistics from the channel, check out our statistics page.
