You might begin your new year by reviewing the WD Rules of Conduct in the "FAQ" forum. I've updated it to include practices which have been in place for some time but never have been listed. Comments here are welcome, especially if you think of something I've forgotten.

If you've wondered, WD receives about a dozen spam posts per day in the "Introductions" forum. They're easily disposed of by "gang" deletion and are usually posted by the same offenders and easily recognizable. I hope no one gets curious and clicks on any of the links in them, as I'm convinced that nearly all of the links lead to malware to be transferred immediately to your PC. I don't even click on them with my Mac!

I miss Terry Rodgers, but thanks to his expertise modding this forum is easy, now that spam posts have been minimized. It's just a process which I can take care of in a few minutes over my morning coffee plus a few minutes more in the evening. Gives an old guy something to do!

Hello there. I am doing good so far.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

I'm writing a response to Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire". I keep remembering key pieces of our history.

A few days late, but none the less, happy new year blessings to all. I do hpe it will be a good year for everyone.

So glad to see you, Paul, well not see you, but hear from you and this is a very good idea to chat with good friends. You're so smart. :D
