I have had an enlightening and educational experience on this forum. I have seen very few places that will allow for the level of open discussion and discourse as is allowed on this forum. It has been one of the most important experiences of my life. This forum has made it possible to debate with opposition in a way no other format could pull off with so little consequence. I have a wiki page dedicated to me and some guy (they know who they are) linking to my blog from an Indonesian porn site. But all in all, that is a small price to pay for free speech and the ability to exchange social, political, and economic ideology with people from around the globe.
If anyone else feels this way, just say so. It's good to show appreciation when something is done for the benefit of others with no profit margin involved.
