This forum *IS* the most compassionate, comforting, loving, accepting forum I've ever encountered.  Well, not the "forum," but the PEOPLE here.  I love all of you I've grown to know and can't wait to get to know those I don't.  If every human being showed every other human the respect and love found here, the world would definitely be a much better place.

I hardly post at all, (ok, so I haven't yet!) I do get a lot of advice and comfort from reading what others have written.  It makes me feel like I am not alone.  Just speaking for those who maybe 'shy' like myself...thank you. I will keep reading.  Happy Holidays.

I think what you find here is REAL PEOPLE. We are being ourselves,not what the public wants or parents what us to be. Here is a place we can be true to ourselves. What a wonderful thing!! Some of us can't do that anywhere else.  Some of us have said , this is who I am !!  So here we are  Real people.

Well, I'm new here so I haven't been worn out with nonsense here, but I do feel very comfortable in this forum. I agree with L, that I feel pretty confident that when I post here, folks get it. It is easy to be me here.

I think this is the only forum where I haven't seen a thread that makes me roll my eyes or leave the computer in disgust.  Plus, everyone was so helpful recommending books for my sister!  So yeah, I love this forum!

I concur. It's a haven for all of us, no matter our sexual identity.

Gawd.  After reading CMT, I am convinced the PBS membership has been lobotomized. @@  I seriously feel like I am reading the Jr. High-School female quivalent of Beavis and Butthead.

Someone give me a shot - of anything - and a good backrub! (Charlie, keep your comments to yourself!)

I'm closing my account.  Those of you who know me know how to get ahold of me.  Those who don't, know who to get ahold of to find out. :)

Here you go L.  I just bought a new bottle of Cointreau - everyone who wants a shot, hold up your glass!

I've decided to just trade books and periodically read the forums from now on.  Posting isn't worth it.   Everyone has a right to talk about what they want but I'm not interested in what anyone had for lunch, what stuff the kids want but the parents can't afford, atheism really is a religion and Obama isn't an American citizen.

L, please don't go.  Just do what I have been doing for the last year.  AVOID THE CMT FORUM AT ALL COST!!!!  You will be much happier for it.  Your thoughtful insight will be truly missed here if you go.

Well, I just got here so I really feel cheated that L is leaving.  I'm thinking it might make more sense to look for conversations here rather than CMT. I've realized I've waded in more conversations going nowhere than I care to admit. ((sigh)).

Could it be some of us, at lesast I think it's partly true for me, that I'm very stressed out about how my family is affected by our current economic crisis and distressed about the myriad of conflicts and crisis affecting the world over. This dis-ease, I think makes me less tolerant and more willing to engage in mindless chatter. I need to back away from the screen.

I stayed out of CMT too, Rose, for around a year, until I recently got sucked back into it.  But I'm trying to get back to ignoring it.  LOL, maybe we could get an "ignore this forum" button! 

Once you're in there, or in CAP, it's just so hard not to call the idiots on the lies or bigoted crap that they're spewing.  At the same time, you know you're beating your head against the wall.  It was worth it during the election, because we all knew there were undecideds reading the forums, and they were the ones we were really writing for.  But now it's just frustrating to even see some of that crap, and I think that's what got L.

She'll be sorely missed here.
