Some people's posts have really had an affect on me and my thinking.
I learnt a lot about myself from the feedback of members I respect and feel know me. That is what I came for, to learn about myself. And that is what I got.
Also, I think even more than what others have said in posts affecting me, the questions raised by others have affected me. Forcing me to work through to something coherent to post.
Like diamonds in shit. It was worth the trouble.
