I was a member of this forum from 2010 until 2013. I cancelled my membership as a result of inequitable and unacceptable behavior of some of the forum members - at that time.
Over the past year I have infrequently read the posts just to stay informed. So much of what was occurring in the dialogues had not improved (threatening posts, insulting posts, belittling posts, etc.). BUT, just last week I noticed a post by Ron that got my attention (and hope). He described a renewed effort on behalf of the moderators to improve the civility of the posts and to remove from membership anyone who would not comply. I monitored daily for the past week to see if changes had, in fact, been implemented. I am happy to say that in my opinion the forum has improved. Consequently, I have rejoined.
Some of you may recall my name/logo. My former member name was Airborne 72. I revised my newer forum name to be airborne-ranger72.
So, I am new to the forum for a second time even though I am an older member. Looking forward to benefiting from the information exchange on the forum and hopefully contributing to the forum. My goal is to leave more than I take. As I have learned in life, all of us are unique and all of us have something to offer.
