    Thank You Cherished.

    I 'bolded' your expression above as it's very touching and real to me. Admittedly, I've had my difficulty with it....:)

    Have we 'psycho analyzed' Aaron enough yet?

    I think (hope) that's been put to rest. If lucky, another round of prompting posts will not fuel it again....

    I vote that all ESMBers become Fictionologists and make this Onion article into reality! I nominate HelluvaHoax to lead our glorious new religion, the rise of which was predicted (fittingly) in a fictional newspaper.

    Let's see if we can surpass Chanology while we're at it.

    Well Miss Purple Rain, I don't see anything to be embarrassed about in that. Not one iota!

    You're speech is very heartfelt and genuine, it flowed out beautifully. :rose:

    Thanks for the link and especially for expressing yourself so honestly and powerfully. It put a big smile on my face, it makes me happy.

    What Knightvision said. I was well impressed and moved by your speech. The only people who should be embarassed are the people on the inside who pulled the curtains down and locked the doors.

    Thanks Emma, KV and He-man.

    I would never have gone along there that day if I wasn't hooked into the community here at ESMB. From my short time on this forum I have learned things which have rocked me to the core, and I have gained so much inspiration from the examples and stories of many brave people.

    I think this is like a snowball. The ripples just keep growing exponentially.

    It is a very warm and welcoming place to be.
