I have one question that's been bugging me for a while. When you read the messages it says how many read them and how many posted. Why would over 100+ read them and on;y 8-10 post back? Can't figure that out. HELP!!
There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

   Posted 6/14/2005 11:21 PM (GMT -6) know I have wondered the same thing as well, only thing I can figure is so many really dont know what to say, or are afraid to something, because they feel they may say something that upsets someone, I dunno it really is curious.

I agree with barbra... I also believe that people reflect back on old posts to help them through certain situations that apply to what is going on with them at the moment. Also non-members come to the site as well to read posts and browse the site. I believe that even when a non-member reads the post, it counts as a READ.

Yup . . . non-members can read, but they can't post.

When you see how many read these posts, you know that your questions and comments are helping a lot more people than you realize.

I read many posts but don't always reply. Sometimes what I would says has been said or I don't feel I have any experience to offer. If you go back and look at the post it will count it again. I never worry about it or even look unless the number is 0.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
