As I write this post, a new record is set. This is the highest number of post that any user has accumulated under a single account. With that being said, there are certain things I want to acknowledge:

PEOPLE:

1. Bsh1 is everything to me. The very reason I get out of bed in the morning is in the hope that I have a future with him.

2. 1harderthanyouthink is like my little brother, and other than marrying bsh1 and sharing my life with him, I want nothing more than to see 1harder learn and grow, and become the man I know he will be one day.

EVENTS:

Recent voting controversies have given rise to many ongoing disputes among members. This is both a good and a bad thing; good because it has furthered site policy discussions with respect to voting, bad because it has caused substantial animosity. I trust that together, we can see it through.

What is important to recognize in all of this is that we are all here for a common purpose; to learn, exchange ideas and grow both personally and intellectually. That is our objective. Our objective is not to quibble over inconsequential drama, or balk at one another's intransigence.

Keeping attuned to that, I think, will serve us well.

THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE:

Allow me to take this moment to acknowledge everyone who may read this post. I know many of you, I am friends with most of you and on balance the majority of you are very good people.

I come here for the same reason that all of us do; to learn and to share, among friends and the community in which they exist, which is predicated upon a decidedly intellectual purpose. That is, I think, unique on the internet. In your own way, you have made DDO what it is. Make no mistake, DDO is an excellent -I would even venture to say the best- online forum community on the internet.

I thank you all.

There are so many of you whom I have had the great privilege to get to know, and whom I can say with confidence have positively contributed to my life. Through college, change, and grad school, DDO was a constant. I am grateful for that, for the members who chose to spend their time here, and for the people on this site I consider my friends.

Peace and Love,
