Also – I turned my back on StackExchange
of its various flavors within a few weeks of having attempted to participate in it. Whereas I've been with LQ
for twelve years so you guys must be doing something right.
LQ is a place where I continue to find that I can: (a)
find solid technical answers to oddball technical questions; and (b)
discuss world politics, faith and religion.
Without worrying about down
votes and other such un-social things. I frankly in all these years have never explored any of your other offerings.
And, while I'm here, I would also like to give a "shout out" to your moderators,
who tirelessly work every day to keep things civil, and who quietly succeed. I myself don't have the patience nor the temperament to play that role: my own solitary attempt to run a forum lasted about a week.
But I recognize and appreciate the effects of those who do, and who do it well. Of which you have quite a few. The end-result of all of your combined efforts is what I'm looking for and have found here: "a very high quality
topical forum web site." @>-+---
