    Just Wanna Say: "Thank You Moderators & HF Members!"

    I just read this piece by Paul Graham. It's a delightful expose on Trolls (written in 2008, yet still relevant today!). I just wanted to express my gratitude for the great moderators here, but also to the group for playing along and playing nice. Yes, we have some quirky rules and occasionally we get ruffled, but overall, things run smoothly.

    I also think that having real world interactions, like our group hangs, is another way that encourages us to play well together, because, yes -- we are real people! We all have our flaws, shortcomings, (even shortsightedness at times), but the overall effect is a general congeniality that makes me want to come back day after day (hour after hour?).

    Thanks guys!

    Well said.

    I agree in that the group hangs really bring a lot to this forums, and would add the videos as well. Both really help share the experience and wealth of knowledge all growing this community in a healthy and positive way.

    This truly is a worth while place to "hang" out.

    Totally agree. Thank you HF moderators for maintaining a forum that supports interaction between the members
    as if we were all sitting around the same campfire sharing our thoughts, opinions and innovations.

    I agree with the above comment. I would bet that 100% of the folks who use this forum have actually been sitting around a campfire sharing thoughts. I think we mostly approach our posts within that paradigm. I feel that, really, no one here uses anonymity as a divisive tool. We all own what we say. That indicates that we respect ourselves and we respect our fellow posters. We actually care what the others think about our ideas. And just as much, I think, we care what the others think about the way in which we present ourselves to each other. That mutual respect makes this a site which is enjoyable, exciting, enriching, and embracing.
