I do not mean to offend anyone whose feelings may be raw today. BUT!

Bill gave me a place to call home in the anonymous world of the internet. He gave me a place to make a family and learn a thing or two. He gave me a place and never has asked for a single penny in return.

He gets my respect and my loyalty without hesitation or exception.

He's always "been there" for me and I intend to "be here" for him.

I think alot of us feel the same way; wouldn't you agree?

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

Bill has provided this place for us to come, have fun and make friends without the work!

I personally think that if somebody has a problem with Bill or anybody else here they should take it up with that person and only that person.

If Bill wasn't here....we wouldn't be here either. So, if he does something you don't like or agree with then I think everybody should either deal with it or move on.

There are a lot of people that no longer join us here that I call my friends. I wish it could be different but everyone will do as they will. This is all just my opinion...not meant to offend anyone!

So in other words....yes I agree Merme!

I tried to delete my post but it wouldn't let me. The only reason I wanted to delete it is because I decided that I really didn't want to get involved with anything. I'm not close enough friends with anyone here to get personally involved. Bill, I think you have done a great job with this website and I, for one, hope to stay for a very long time.

I agonized over this forum too much, back when we thought it was going to be gone awhile back!!! I stayed at the PC all night because I was afraid if I left, it would be gone!!! boohoo I typed, and cried, and begged (and prayed!) that whole night long!!! I think it was one of my most horrible nights!!!
Then morning came and it was still here!!!!! luv

You couldn't DRAG me away from this place with a bulldozer!!!!!!

I think making things public is the way to go. That way the stories can be told and dealt with without gossip and talking behind the back. Things are better when out in the open. Even though we are all far away we've become close and like a family of sorts. Families have problems that need to be dealt with and secrecy is no way to deal with anything. Feelings get hurt, people get mad,we get over it, and still love each other. If a person doesn't want to visit this site they should not. But on the other hand I think we should be able to say what we want about a situation (within reason) and not be poofed. When people need a forum break they should be able to take that break and be able to return to the forum when ready. I miss some of the people who have been poofed (I've never known why) and wish they could come back.

That said, I appreciate Cindy's straight forwardness in the explanation. Possibly if it had come earlier we wouldn't be in this mess.

When people are online with each other as much as we are we need to communicate - the good and the bad.

She may not be gone forever. She MAY just be stepping back for a while? I got the impression her feelings were badly hurt by something that was said, remember?

I had wanted to post and ask her if she had checked with Bill to find out if what she had been told was site policy or just an opinion, but the thread was gone when I came back to do it.

I wish I could help her. Or anyone who gets hurt here.

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.
