I am a member of another forum where the moderator will flame people! I just want to thank Joe and Bill for running a good forum where people are free to express their opinions without fear of getting jumped on. I would also like to thank Joe for his keeping this forum fun by posting his quirky threads. The Jackalope come to mind.

Since I am not sure of the "org" chart of the board I am not sure who else to express my appreciation to. I know that PaulUK and Scott35 help greatly in this forum as well.

I know that Harold posted a similar thread recently but when I saw the moderator flaming somone on the other forum, it just made me appreciate this forum all that much more.

Who wants the soap box next?

You are right, I visit several BB and I find that this one is the nicest. Most of us get along just fine. We don't have to flame anyone just to show how much we know. ( Or think we know.) This board allows everyone the right to make a statement, say what they will, and ask any kind of a question. This board seems to want to help everyone else, answer any/all questions that come up. ( No matter if someone thinks that it is a silly question or a dumb one) This board respects everyone else. I'm done. You can have the soap box back.
