Ya know, we write about the bugs, the crashes, the traffic decline and whatever. There is no doubt, this site, like any other business has had its problems. While I know that IB, the admins and the mods work hard to fix them, there is no doubt that we have frustration around here sometimes.
One thing always seems to get lost in the conversation. I have made a lot of friends here over the last eight years. This has been a part of my life that I wouldn't ever want to forget. In terms of people, each and everyone here I've had contact with has had an affect and made an impression.
I made some friendships here I expect to last for life. I've disagreed with some people here, but I can honestly say, it is very hard for me to think of anyone I dislike. By and large this is a community of people I am proud to be associated with.
To me the friendships I have made have outweighed many of the problems. I hope that doesn't get forgotten. I never will.
What a profound statement.
I remember as a kid in high school I had a "pen pal" in Hawaii and thought it was just the neatest experience.
Who would have ever dreamed we would be able to amass so many "pen pals" the world over as we do here now on a daily basis.
