Obviously the answer for many of you is, an overwhelming YES.
The reason I am posting this is, for some or perhaps many, they only post or IM(instant message/e-mail) other members, but have not spoken to them via the phone.
I'm aware that for some, calling long distance is a financial concern, thus the e-mail thing/IM works fine and serves its purpose.
IF...you are considering it: I highly recommend it.
Personally, I have had the good fortune to speak to several members from this forum, and I can tell you: it made my day!
This forum is like an extended family, and of course, given our commonality of having been former Jehovah's Witnesses, we certainly can relate to each other, no problem.
I've just started calling members from this forum since about the beginning of March (2003). Gradually calling others, and I can tell you: It's GREAT!
To those that I haven't called yet: I'll be talking to you soon.
Anyone else here care to share, anyone considering making that first call?
To those whom have spoken to me via the telephone: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
