I wanted to share this because it gives a good insight on Peter Waite's thinking when he developed this website. He clearly understood what he wanted to accomplish, and I am sure with learning along the way, he has posted his vision on what a good self help website should be...have a look...

What a great post. His advice is on the money.

Without good moderators, a forum can self-destruct. We are lucky to have three supremely outstanding moderators, Tony, Doting Daughter and James!
