First, let me thank all the Fools who have helped improve my life just by sharing their experiences. Recently married, and a former debt-hound, I needed a little encouragement to begin my new life the right way, and I am grateful for having found it in the Fool community.

I just wanted to let you all know that your advice helps many more of us without the wisdom or experience to contribute to the dialogue. So, on behalf of all the "lurkers" out there who have benefitted from this board -- thank you.

Also, I have read some posts by those who discourage people from postings that can be a little off subject. I think this is sad because it may inhibit real Fools from dispensing the advice I have found invaluable. While I appreciate the occasional need for very specific advice, I have found that more often than not the Fool approach is a "big-picture" view that, in the long run, is far more valuable to a healthy financial life than any single specific answer could ever hope to be.

I apologize if this posting seems trivial, I just wanted to let you all know that you are appreciated -- even if some of us lack the courage (wisdom?) to post.
