Logged in to see what was happening and just realized its been one year to the day since I registered here. Kind of amazing. This was the first internet forum I had ever joined. I was raised a JW but was never baptized and walked away from it after high school and never looked back, 98% of my family is still in. 20 some years out and I'd never had occasion to talk with anyone else that had left the Borg, which in retrospect is kind of amazing. Then I found this place and it was refreshing even after all of that time to get to hear other experiences and realize I wasn't as alone in my journey through life as I always thought I was.
This place has been great for me, first thanks to Simon for creating such a place, and thanks to all the people that I have met here that have helped me sort of complete my journey out of the Borg, deferred as it has been. I have made many friends here (and probably some enemies, lol), some that have transcended the board into real life and it has been wonderful, knowing now that I can talk with someone that has a shared experience when I need to.
To everyone here that I have interacted with thanks for the support, wisdom, and humor that you have extended to me. I want to name names but I don't want to offend anyone that I would forget.
To everyone here, Salut!!! and many happy returns.
