I usually post in this forum when there is a problem or there is something that needs correcting.
This post is not that.
This post is to say "wow - things aren't just good. They're damn good!"
Lots of really rich discussion of excellent substance. And as I read a thread, I'll think of something I want to say, and then see that somebody else has said exactly what I was gonna say - and then they say something I didn't know.
The quality is good. Spam is low. People are very respectful of all the other folks hanging out here. (knock on wood)
Several times a day there is a new topic that has something new for me - that is the sort of thing I want to know.
The really excellent thing is that it's not me. It's everybody else.
Sometimes I might be in a group of people where my ideas are so radically different that I really cannot grow - because I'm spending all of my time just trying to deal with my environment. People are pulling me down.
With this group, not only can I grow, but I feel like I get a lot of help on my path to understanding. People are pulling me up!
I feel a bit like I planted a seed and nutured it a bit, and now we have a rather remarkable tree that is growing without any further nurturing from me.
