I remember when there were about 2,500 member of Spine-Health. Slowly we reached 8,000 (around 2008/9) and that was so exciting.
I do miss the days when we had only 2,500 because it seemed like everyone knew each other. But know we get to hear about so many different things
we never heard about before. Times do change.

    I find this information interesting. Based upon Ron's figures, it is my "rough" estimate that less than 1% of the member population ever post to the forum. That would be about 400 different individuals.

    Imagine the difference it would make if every member (40,000) posted only once. This forum would explode with information, shared experiences, encouragement, compassion, etc. Think about it.

    My challenge to those of you who comprise the silent majority is to contribute. You may help someone in the process of seeking help, and that outcome is doubly therapeutic. We are all in this journey together.
