Thank you Henry.  I have only been here 13 months but I understand and agree totally with your statement.  UM IS a wonderful site and it is head and shoulders above every other site I have found on the internet.  The moderators make all the difference!  Every other place was over run with loud, vulgar individuals who argue constantly.  This place is awesome :)  Hope you enjoy many more years!  :tu:


We do argue sometimes on here, or shall we say it's just "heated debates". lol


Never a bad thing to have different opinions though. :tu:

Not at all. Despite disagreements every one in a while, most members here are good folks. :tu:

Congratulations Eonwe.  I think most UM members understand that while people may debate "passionately" about what they believe they do not hold it against those with differing views, it is valuable to have one's views challenged and reviewed - you never know when the next breakthrough in understanding is going to arrive, or from whom.  I have learned a great deal in my time here and hope to learn a great deal more.

Me and "And Then" have some pretty heated debates. lol But we still end up liking each others posts a lot in other threads. lol Kinda funny really, but that's life and everyone has their opinions. It's petty to let that stop you from being friendly or getting on the rest of the time.

I heartily agree, if we all thought the same way there would be nothing to say.

Thank you, libstaK. I appreciate it.

Humans have the unique opportunity to continue learning throughout their lives.. For this, I appreciate being human.

But as Coffey said, having minor disagreements shouldn't deter being friendly or getting along.

In the end, we're all different souls on the same road to some where.
