Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.

Ok, I was a little flippant earlier because I was in a hurry.

I used to enjoy your posts on the SE board. I loved your stories about building your business, taking care of your customers and suppliers and how the guy that bought the business from you didn't maintain your level of responsibility and didn't do as well as you did.

Actually that was another guy. The couple who bought our surplus store from us are doing just fine business wise, but the husband died of a heart attack. Their sons are more or less running it now and doing fine.

If someone posts a link to say, Jesus and Mo comic strip on the Atheist Fools board, no one cares.

Tried them - OK, but not for me.

You've been here long enough to remember the days when LBYM was so busy a person couldn't keep up with the posts.

Now, it's almost a wasteland.

Silly me, I thought I was helping with that.

When I see 15 unread messages now, I get excited, "Ooooo, maybe someone has started up a new controversy (or maybe dug up one of the old ones)"

And this isn't a controversy?

Actually, I spent an hour there looking for something worthy of LBYM this morning and didn't find much. But thanks for the tips on the other photo boards.

I'll leave y'all to all those other fascinating stimulating conversations while I check out those other photo boards.
