Daily Kos: 3 Years Old

Marcos' first post says it all:

I am progressive. I am liberal. I make no apologies. I believe government has an obligation to create an even playing field for all of this country's citizens and immigrants alike. I am not a socialist. I do not seek enforced equality. However, there has to be equality of opportunity, and the private sector, left to its own devices, will never achieve this goal.

The guy was good right out of the gate. I don't remember when I first posted on dKos. My user ID is under 10K, so I must have joined somewhere around December 2003. At the time, I was a BFA regular, and didn't understand blogging's potential. I don't know if any of us did. I just liked being around like-minded individuals. I remember being really intimidated by the comments on dKos as everyone seemed to know so much more than I did. But I stayed around. Lurked a lot. Learned a lot. Then posted. A lot. Now I understand words like invective and I know what cloture means. But I can still be intimidated by the depth of knowledge there.

I owe my start to Howard Dean and BFA. But I owe my understanding to Marcos and the dKos community.
