Welcome, South Ubeka. It's my custom to buy a newcomer his or her first drink upon arrival, so why not join us for a cup of coffee or whatever you prefer?
I'm afraid most regions in NS have their share of arguing from time to time, but some regions seem to borrow from others. Stick around, you'll see us grumbling at one another too. But mostly we rub along in friendly fashion.
Also feel free to visit our region's forum (link in the WFE above) and register. Good for another free coffee (or whatever) and a chance to participate in some important decisions going on just now.
