I agree that we have seen an increase in this kind of activity recently on the forums/boards. People tend to reach out, wherever they can, in their time of need, to get answers, even when they don't have their own answers. Being the souls that we are, here on the ANA board, we welcome, we give a shoulder or a thought or suggestion and hope someone takes from it in a positive way.
I think it's just being a part of the Internet. Oh, well........ but, for those of us that are here, with AN's, that reach out for others as others reach out to us, well, what can I say? We are a wonderful bunch and if I could pack you all up and fit you in my house, trust me, I would. We are fortunate to have the ANA site/forum boards and I'm am blessed, as one AN'er to another, to have you all here.
