I came, I read, I understand...I think.
It is an unfortunate fact of humanity that people and their organizations grow and change, but often not in the same directions. Hurt feelings are not an uncommon result, and the best we can hope for is that time will heal all wounds.
Vic deserves great thanks for acting on a vision that resulted in this community, and although I have not been a particularly active participant in my 18 months of membership, I am thankful for all I have learned from the contributions of others. If my one paltry donation to support the now defunct bulletin board went for a beer (or three), so be it; what I learned was worth every cent. With luck, Vic will return to the family he created, and we will all be the better for it.
In the meantime, let me say that the new site looks to have terrific potential. Great new tools! Hats off to the Administrators who've led the charge into this brave new world. I for one am looking forward to the new adveture.
