So.... I really like this place
I like the camaraderie. I appreciate the knowledge.
I think the honesty, banter and correction is great, even when I am on the losing end and it pisses me off. There are so many good people and serious expertise.
To be clear, all of the above arises through and from its members.
There is no intrinsic value in a platform. There is no “ Goodwill” to a platform. There is no add revenue without members.
I, am here specifically because of certain members who are the “Golden thread” of this site. I am sure my view isn’t an anomaly.
