I wanted to take a moment, on this my 2nd anniversary as a member of ATS, to say thank you to all the members who have put up with me and my opinions.
I have been looking forward to today so I could write out this thread and give thanks but as it turns out I have even more to be grateful for. Upon
logging in today I found that I have been awarded my silver boarder. What a great anniversary present and that would not have been possible without
the support of my fellow ATS Family members.
I have learned a lot over the last 2 years to say the least. ATS is the first forum that I actively engaged in and that in itself has been a great
learning experience. I have made mistakes in posting, I have lost control and been rude, I have been negative from time to time, but I have also had
many great conversations and have learned a lot. I have even changed my opinion more times than I can count due to the logical and well thought out
posts some of the other members have made and I have been wrong about several things, but alas you, my fellow Family members, have stood by me through
thick and thin.
This is not only a thank you but also a promise. A promise to stand by you all in the interest of denying ignorance and finding truth but also in
having fun and a laugh or two. To those that I have clashed with in the past, I wish to say thank you as well. Without you I would not have learned as
much as I have.
To the Moderators and other Staff, Thank you for putting up with me over the last 2 years. I know I have not made it easy for you on more than one
occasion and I think I probably deserved a post ban or few that never came. I have clashed with some of you more than once and I thank you for your
patience and understanding, without which I would no longer be here and enjoying my 3rd year on this the Greatest Forum on the net.
To all, a humble Thank You and I hope to have many more anniversaries to share with every one of you.
