Chef, you have struck a chord within our souls. I need not to elaborate. The more that you are here, the more that you will feel and understand the depth of the caring amongst our forum members. We are nothing short of a very big family, that protects one another, and give each other support, we are one.
I honestly have nothing that I can really say here about comparisons to other forums, I belong to a couple, but only post there once in a blue moon. This forum has been my space for quite some time now, think I began around November 06.
What has always enthralled me about this space here is the love, comradary, caring, real down to earth people. Nothing that I have ever seen here has been hurtful, mean, anything like that. It is a place of happiness, it is the cyberspace prozac I would say. A feel good place, a must place to be.
When I come to my forum here, I feel that I have opened up the souls of everyone that lives deep within the screen of my computer. I see that we all are good people, I have never picked up a bad vibe from any member here, that I can recall. I know that there has been members that were a little off, but they did not last very long here, and were dealt with swiftly.
Our Moderators do such a great and wonderful job of keeping this forum a safe and happy place to be, a place where we know that nothing that would harm us, through cyberspace, ever, anything evil would be caught long before any damage could be done. Hours and hours are spent moderating the posts in the forum, not only by the Moderators, but also by the Forum Members themselves.
I know that I am protected here. I know that everyone loves me, as I love everyone else here too. Now....tell me, anyone. Is there anything more wonderful in this world than being loved? Why wouldn't we all love to be here, spend time with each other, are not these feelings good. Have that most beautifully wonderful and great day, the best of health, and the chance to love the life that we live. Cindi
