I just realized that there are over 18,000 messages on this board in 14 months, congratulations to pattipf3 with this simple post in thanks to another poster: http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=14418539 , in it's own simple way it totally captures the spirit of this board. I am in awe of this group. We started this board on December 11, 1999 as a place for Fools to gather and support each other in their weight loss efforts and travel down the road together as we worked towards a healthier lifestyle. We set the rules, we changed the rules and we took off. We decided from the beginning that this was not the place to fight, flame or otherwise be cruel, but to support, understand and be there for one another. We decided almost from the beginning that is was a group effort and treat each other like the family that we all dreamed off. Not the TV style family, but the one that loves not so much unconditionally but accepts each other.We have had our share of trolls, but if you notice, not the usual amount. Why? Because we have refused to rise to their bait and we see through those who come here to taunt and tease. We have set a standard that other boards could learn from. And before you all come forward and say it was me, my leadership or whatever you might come up with, just remember, NONE of it would have worked if you hadn't all agreed to the rules that were set down. You all agreed to accept one another, despite any differences you might have on other boards, when you come here, you forget those other boards and either cheer each other on or sympathize or support each other with advice, love and caring. I may be the board Mommy, but you are the true core of the family and I couldn't have asked for a better group to be the Mother of. Thank you everyone for all your hard work, research, advice and love over the past 14 months. Thank you for being the best on line family anyone could ask for.DeanndaHere's to the best family board on the Fool!
