Just general thanks . . .

Someone posted the other day, and made a comment about how many times he had helped other people, and how he sometimes felt unappreciated for his help.

So this is just a general "thank you" to the knowledgeable people on the Forum who do help others. Many times it is a question that has been asked many times before, but the people that I am thinking of always manage to be courteous, answer the question, sometimes suggest other sources of information, and in the process manage to make the person asking the question feel good about the whole thing.

Although I do have certain people in mind as I write this, I am not going to name any names, because for sure I would miss someone who should not be missed.

So just a general thanks -- you not only help others but you contribute greatly to making the Forum a good place to visit.

I second that general thank you. I learn so much from all of you, and you have helped me solve some problems.

Let's keep paying it forward.

Cheers, Bill

Yup! And there are an an extra special few who are especially knowledgeable and yet patient. And, they do so without calling us out on our stupidity.

It's amazing how many times while googling for information I end up right back here, or how often answers can be found using the TF's advanced search function.

Kudos to all

There is specific stuff you are looking for, and other stuff I seem to absorb by osmosis. Thanks to all.
You learn about osmosis too.
