    Default Postscript: Previously Unpublished Speeches from April 2018 Member of the Day

    Several members declined nomination for an April 2018 Member of the Day award.

    Two of these members already had beautiful speeches written about them by the members who nominated them, and I wanted to share them. With the permission of the authors and their nominees, here are the two nomination speeches and the reply of one of the nominees:



    Virtual Ghost is a longtime member of this forum, and has consistently made thoughtful and substantive contributions on a variety of topics, from politics to that neverending ENFP/INTJ thread, all while conversing in a second language. He is always genuine, and I can trust him to say what he means and mean what he says, which - like common sense - is none too common. I especially appreciate the insights Virtual Ghost provides on life in Europe, particularly Eastern Europe. He provides much needed perspective on events in the U.S., and I always learn from what he shares of his own experiences. He represents the best of us, and I am glad to know him, if only "virtually".

    I'd like to nominate geedoenfj because she has faced everything life could throw at someone, and rather than becoming a defeated or negative person, she turned it around into something which made her a better and stronger person. It seems that when she's not saying something funny or interesting, she's saying something nice or profound. I've learned so much about life and about wisdom from her posts and our interactions here on the forum.

    JAVO



    I’d like to thank you a lot for sharing this message, it moved me to tears reading this.. I always respected JAVO and learned so much from him myself, and it’s very nice to see his kind words, thank you again and again

    Thank you to JAVO, geedoenfj, Coriolis, and Virtual ghost for participation and permission to publish these.
    And did you exchange

    I nominate @Metis because as far as I can tell, they're just plain good.

    and there's nothing plain about being good, because it's so hard to find

    Thank you so much for your kindness, and I brought you something to show my appreciation

    I 100% agree with coriolis about Virtual Ghost, his insight are always subjective and rational, specially with English not being his mother language, everytime I start reading one of his posts, I know I will eventually click that like button
