    Just cuz...

    I just wanted to say hi to everyone and say I am really grateful for this forum. 99% of the time I kind of take the fact that I can communicate with people I have never met and learn from their knowledge, experience etc and sometimes get a look at the other side of an issue.
    Also this thing called the internet that allows me to be able to do this.

    I know, I am weird, but when you really stop and think about it, especially in contrast to just twenty years ago, it is pretty amazing.

    So thanks to Bumper for creating this for us and thanks everyone else for being here and letting me learn from you!

    Absolutely. It's good to pause and take a moment to appreciate Bumper, the moderators and all the members who contribute their time, experiences, questions, opinions, money, and reprimands. It's all good (well - most of it ;-).

    Thank you all.

    I also appreciate this forum and the others I frequent. It gives me an opportunity to engage in conversations with others of like minds. I have an opportunity to present my views and my experiences so that others can learn from what I know.

    That said, I think the forum has been degrading lately. There have been some instances where the powers-that-be have gone, or threatened to go, over the line (IMO).

    +5000 Thank you Bumper and admins for making this one of the best sources of collected knowledge on the Internet.

    I agree 100% with the above posters with the exception of this:

    I'm not sure where you get this. I'm not saying you don't have a reason to think this, but I sure as heck haven't seen anything over the line.

    I agree with the OP also, DC is a great community. It amazes me sometimes the variety of topics that come up but someone always has a credible answer for.

    I actually have a rant on this since I am usually outspoken anyway!

    I find myself taking WAY TOO MUCH TIME on this forum!

    My wife gets SOOOO mad at me when I am at HOME checking "The Forum" as it has become to be called in my house. Its bad enough I have to sit at the range (when its slow) and talk you all on this thing, then I go home and do it there!!

    So heres to you all for taking up too much of my time!
    Not like I want to spend it with my wife nagging at me anyway!




    NA!! Just kidding! I do spend alot of time on here only because its fun to share and talk with like minded people. Getting into arguments with people other than my wife keeps me sharp. She really dont mind that I spend alot of time on here, so long as I stay out of her hair and let her play her "farmville" or whatever! Thank you guys for being friends and letting me speak my mind.

    My sentiment exactly.

    The forum is kind of addictive, keeps me away from stuff like, work, practicing my drums and now bass guitar and then hitting the range with the wife, weather permitting. I need to work on that, huh?

    No really, it's a great place, the moderators do a fine job keeping us all in line and making the place "user friendly".

    I mirror many of the other comments, glad that I found this place, and hope it continues for a long time to come.
