Hey fellow Kratomites!

I forgot to introduce myself before I've made a few posts. My name's Michael and I'll be helping with the moderation of the forum!

A little about me, I'm from Michigan, now living in sunny SoCal. I was introduced to Kratom about 6 months ago, and have done quite a bit of research and feel I'm beginning to get a good grasp on how it works and how people feel about it. This site is on it's way to becoming a solid community to discuss everything Kratom, so I'm hoping to learn and discuss a lot more about this miraculous plant.

If you have any questions or concerns with anything, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to "Meeting" you all! :-h

I've been looking for an introductory thread for our new, and much needed moderator. Michael, I'm happy to see you here. It had eluded me for a while. I am curious if you could tell us a little about yourself, personally speaking that is. I am also wondering what kind of things you feel are important in a community moderator, and if you have any qualifications.

Please, tell us about yourself, I feel fairly confident that there other people who are also interested in getting to know you more.

You know, each time I log in here, which isn't too often I admit, I notice that you're online here. It's good to see we have a vigilant eye, keeping us safe.

Hey Jeff,

So I'm from a really small town in Michigan, just north of Notre Dame University in Indiana. I started skateboarding when I was 10 years old and I still do it now at the age of 21. It's looked at really funny where I'm from, and it wasn't something I was going to give up so I moved out to southern California where I currently reside. I've taken every computer class I could since Middle School, including a 3 hour a day Cisco networking class my senior year. My background in technology has brought me some gigs to pay my bills, and moderation of this forum is one of them.

I was introduced to Kratom when I broke my leg skateboarding, I had a surgery where I received a plate held in by 6 screws and a 7th one in the bone. Needless to say, it was a pretty painful experience, but I'm very against using synthetic pain pills for more than a couple of days because I refuse to take something that physically addicting for one, and I also hate the zombie-like feeling that it gives me. The internet brought me Kratom, and being the nerd I am I had to know absolutely everything I could about it. So that would be a solid qualification there I'd say, I've read a bunch of research papers on it, and I've actually written a blog post on some of my recent findings that will be posted here in a few days.

To answer your question, I think it's important that a community moderator not only knows when to step in to conversations, and take charge in things such as a ridiculous argument, but when to keep your head out of them when it's an area you're not genuinely interested in or a part of. I would hate to annoy people by not allowing them to post freely without me butting in, because I do come across every single post on the site.

And I keep a tab up and check the posts a couple times a day all 5 days of the week so you'll see me watching over often. Call me the batman of the forum B)

I hope that instills some confidence in everyone here that I've got you all covered. Take it easy all and keep enjoying the forum!

Hi Michael/Batman,

I don't believe I formally introduced myself or welcomed you here at the ILK forum...greetings from the Jersey Shore my friend, glad to see you here keeping us in line! Hopefully you'll never have a need to bitch slap me around, lol. I'm usually on my best behaviour when I'm here, or at least I try anyway :whistle:

Thanks for posting your intro's here in this thread, I appreciate the opportunity to "get to know you", so to speak. I look forward to seeing you around here on the forum. I hope I contribute in a way that's beneficial to the group, and like I said: if I get out of hand just let me have it! :woohoo:

Best wishes!

I aPpreciate you helping out and i respect your moderating skills. I am seeing having a moderator "with the knowledge you spoke of" can be very needed.
I love this forum cause it's a safe and a trusted place to get the information as well as the experience from others in the know.
I frequently check out another forum "reddit" and although sometimes it's very knowledgeable most of the time i feel like I'm in high school with all the cliques and drama.
I don't feel that here at "I Love kratom" i am grateful to have found such an experienced and heartfelt community.
And I'm grateful your watching over with a Mindful caring eye. I see we need a moderator and I'm glad and appreciate you being there. Keep up the Good work!!

I agree about Reddit. Reddit has become an immoral breeding ground, rife with drama and verbal abuse, which is unchecked often times.
