First, thank you to all of the folks that have responded to my numerous questions in the past. I do try to post a thank you, but often times forget. I apologize for being impolite, and will make a conscious effort not to do it again.
As far as the value of this board, I for one hit this site several times each day. As already suggested, I often search for specific topics, and 9 times out of 10, find useful questions and answers that enable me to get the info I need without posting a question. I would be very disappointed to see anything happen to this site.
That's all I am going to say because I would rather be spending my time searching through the board.
