A very moving and sincerely written post.
As a former "new guy" (after 200+ posts can I graduate to "regular guy?") I well remember the feelings of uncertainty that went with those first few posts I made when starting out here.
But the warm welcoming, the obvious wealth of knowledge to be shared, and the happy camaraderie (well, most of the time), are splendid reasons for staying here, and made it clear to me that this is the place to be. I believe most who come here feel that, as well.
Yes, we are all at different stages of this strange journey, some of us have better "numbers" than others, etc., and there are probably as many reasons for people being (and staying) on this list as there are list members.
But I genuinely believe that almost everyone who visits here, whether staying or not, leaves a better person for having been here.
And members like you, Todd, are one of the big reasons for that.
