Hmmm, well that's a huge question you're asking and I'm a bit nervous that I wont do it justice?

@news notoriously leans towards the post-left and nihilist persuasions although I've found the collective to be quite fair and relatively nonsectarian in the grand scheme of things.

Those tendencies are home to some powerful critiques that I make a lot of use of but as you said, there's always that classic anarchist question of what are you for? What are you doing to get there? Is your politics or perspective mostly just a passive exercise of negation or posturing? Not that that's intrinsically bad but its deeply unsatisfying to many pragmatic ppl.

Still, the whole point of critique is to avoid making the same mistakes over and over so it's a good start.

I spent years hanging around here and the anarchist library, expanding my perspectives beyond classic leftism and I'll always be grateful to the folks who did the work so I could learn all this shit for free. Very generous of them!
