ORLY? I've seem to have accrued my share of points and deleted posts...

Happy trails Dash Man!

I agree with this.

I also don't think there is a lot of "group think", but many things are repeated OVER AND OVER AND OVER again...which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just how things are on these interwebz forums. I think many people "come and go" with er.org as well as the 1 billion other forums out there...it's just human nature. I was *very* involved in a fairly popular professional flying web forum (about 10 years and many thousands of posts) but eventually it grew tiresome. I am not saying that I now know EVERYTHING there is to know about aviation, but the after a while, it got to be the same old same old. BUT..every now and then, I will drop in and see what's new...which is usually nothing.

Oddly enough, I spent WAY more time on the internet when I was still w*rking, but now I am just not "that into" the internet. So, I would be surprised if I actually accumulate 1,000+ posts in any of the forums I participate in now.

Dash Man...have a good one and take care!

I had a post deleted once, but admittedly, it was a little dirty. Can't even remember what it was, but I think it was easter-related, and involved a bunny.

Anyway, all the best to Dash Man!

I think many come here for financial advice or reassurance, but stay due to the diversity of topics that have nothing to do with finance. Dashman, maybe like Midpack, you will reconsider leaving the board after a short hiatus. Anyhow, all the best.

Hey, this crazy iMac auto corrected my spelling and changed Dashman to Dishman, and Midpack to Mudpack. I had to edit my post

The good news is that your iMac correction is a little less expensive now, I hear.

(I thought you two were wrestling or having some unusual male facial - didn't want to ask)
