I've been away from the Portal for the better part of two years. I recently started lurking around without signing in. When I finally signed in, I realized that I had several messages that I never responded to. I'm very sorry for not getting back to any of them. I was at the point that I allowed one or two posters to get under my skin by, well lets just say they strongly valued their own opinion and liked to belittle those who didn't agree. The easiest thing for me to do was simply walk away for a while. It's good to see a lot of familiar names and a lot of new ones.
