Old TB2K forum regular, you must feel like a multi-million lotto winner, don't you? Congrats.

Take care

I agree. The past two days have been quite a sight to see. Congrats, regular!

I still can't figure out how Ed Yourdon could just throw out the window the best and most effective news forum in the world without even thinking twice.

It sounds like a self-destructive attitude to me.

Take care

It appears those permitted to do so gave the new forum the benefit of the doubt until it became obvious that there was neither any benefit nor any doubt. Glad to see you here, George.

I second Flint's emotion, George.

I am just really sad that we have probably lost more people who feel they do not fit in at either location any more. This really has been a shift.

Normally, I agree with you. The truth is, I suspect many people may have felt as though they did not "fit in" at the original forum, for a variety of reasons. I am sincerely hoping this forum has the flexibility and kindness to welcome and to enable discussion for everyone without bitterness. I know I'll do my best to keep it civil.

Glad to be here with you too Anita.
