I don't like these threads because people that don't get mentioned might be hurt by that. I was happy to see that at least 2 people mentioned me, but my happiness only lastest about two seconds, because then I saw:
the kindest people to me have been razorblade and big tex...oh, also stinkypantz
Anyways the posters that have made a huge impact on me are AlanF simply because he's a genius. Funkyderek, I respect because even when he disagrees with you he does so tactfully. Francois has made a BIG impact because I disagree with almost everything he says and I've gotten in big arguments w/him, and Farkel because he's a huge smartass (I mean that in a good way).
But those are people that impacted ME personally. As for the board, people like Minimus are excellent for newbies. AlanF is also good for this board because he educates those that need to be educated. Mulan seems to often see 'the other side' when someone is pissed off, or in other words takes the side of the underdog.
That's all I gotta say I guess.
