I am grateful the resource was there for me and the rest of us at around the time it was truly buzzing (I was there only since 2003 so I'm not sure how it was before that). I will not say that some of the rules weren't harsh but let's be honest, the way we behaved on that site and how we behave here today are not dissimilar - say what you will, it has rubbed off on the community - but we just do not have somebody to remind us constantly. For example most of the resourcers still use the same avatars and handles, I can't see any multi-line signatures or offensive ones, I do not see rude words in our posts - it's like we come from the same school with the same mannerisms. Only we feel comfortable not having a teacher with a stick all the time, now that we've grown up - and I think this is what makes the community great.dohcrxl said:I know where I am now but I don't forget where I came from.
If I have dug up some old wounds for anyone, I do apologize cos it was not my intent to do so when I came to the community. But I am sure glad I found some old friends here and no doubt I will be making new ones too.
