    Nice post mark. I have frequented many sites that are solely dedicated to a single platform. I have never formed the type friendships on other forums like I have formed here. That's why I often make return visits to the stack,just for the social aspect of it.

    edit: i do have one dear friend i met on another forum but i never felt like part of the community

    Amen, Mark.

    My wife couldn't relate to why I was so upset about Jeremy's passing, having never met the man. I'm sure we've all tried so many times and in so many ways to describe what we have here, but unless you've lived and experienced it, you can't possibly understand.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Feel like a group hug.

    I got over it. Haven't showered yet.

    Good work Mark. We sometimes differ in opinion, but I still consider each member here part of my extended family.

    Sorry about the jokes guys. Marks editorial is sad and sobering, although it does carry a bit of joy with it as well. (Insert Cheers theme here).

    Hope you catch my drift. Don't mean to sound insensitive.

    Mark, that was a terrific article, and it describes how I feel about many folks here and on some other message boards I belong to (quite a few of the same members are on several I'm on).

    Mark I read this and am at a loss, you have put into words my thoughts and feelings so eloquently. You are absolutely correct, Pinstack is a family, we are connected I would say through the love of the smartphones we use, yet it is more than that, it is more a connection of being able to help when one can, of seeing others taking time out of their day reacting quickly to others problems. More than that people on this site do not flames others yes there is sarcasm, but it is more in the form of teasing as you would see between friends. So seeing the passing thbassman was shocking just as it would be loosing a family member. He will be sorely missed by us all.So thank you again Mark for reminding us of why we stay posting on Pinstack. From a true newbie to posting way way less posts than you.
