Okay, I confess that I did not read ALL 220 posts in this thread before writing, but here's my two cents worth, in bits and pieces. I miss being able to "see" who is in the same thread with me. I LIKE being able to see where folks have just been when I look for them. (Although it's maybe just a little bit creepy that I can.) I love, LOVE, LOVE that I DO NOT have to "hand-italicize" ALL of the italicized words in my postings. You have NO IDEA how much time that took and how often I missed one, or several. I, um, THINK I like the private conversations. I'm still working on it, still trying to get the hang of it. That's it so far, except to say, "Thank you, thank you and thank you for TRYING to please us and for WANTING to please us. We appreciate you!"
