    There are so many great threads and posts here on ESMB.

    Sometimes they get buried in an avalanche of trivia until someone rediscovers them and bumps them back into prominence.

    With the sudden influx of new readers here I thought I'd search out some of my favourite threads and post the links.

    Perhaps my fellow ESMBers have other threads that helped in their recovery, I'd love to see this list grow into a compendium of all that is great on ESMB.

    The following is by no means a complete list, it's just a few of the threads that I consider important to newbies.
    Feel free to add your favourites.

    I tried to bump Pandora's Box last night and it was closed.:confused2: Is there a way to bump a closed thread?

    Bea and Sharon's story are also important imo.

    Nevermind. I think we just bumped it. :D

    Looking over this list of threads, it is really good to see all the hard work being done by newly out exes.

    Keep using your energy for the public good.

    That's exactly why I chose to do it this way, Bytie.
    Pandora's Box is linked in my post above.

    Just add the links to the stories you feel are important, it's gotta be easier to keep this one thread on the front page than bumping each story individually.
