Hello! I'm calling myself SLSmith.
I joined because I believe that the search for truth is one of the greatest goals in life, and that the distribution of truth is equally important. I know the most about chemistry- and biology-related subjects, which is where I'd like to spend most of my time, but I'm interested in many other things as well.
I'd rather not directly take positions on contentious issues - it saves a lot of time and helps keep me from becoming biased myself. However, I will object to particular arguments I think are incorrect, regardless of what side they come from, so I hope I don't get in trouble for that. :)
Unfortunately, my responsibilities may see me gone for long periods, but I'll always try to return. Please tell me on my talk page if you'd like to discuss anything, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
