Well, I'll say it. The ALL of the messages are worth my time to read. Here's
1. This listserver has created a community. I am glad to be a part of
that community, because I don't work with other TW's. I have found
that most of my problems as a TW are share by other TW's as well. And,
for a long time I though it was just me.
2. I read one post that was invaluable to me. That one post proposed
a solution that I had not though up myself. It was probably an
off-topic post. I will have to read a lot of posts before the value
of that solution decreases.
