Funnily enough, I am myself blown away by the people on this list and the sl4
one. The underlying tenderness and genuine caring that I see on this list and
the sl4 one, gives me a really warm feeling. I'm literally gob-smacked by two
impressions ( which at the moment seem permanent ):

1. Higher intelligence seems to correlate with respect of others ( I can be
quite an asshole sometimes; watching and reading people's exchanges and views
on this list, makes me aspire to more, better )

2. Being bright does not mean that less bright people do not matter.

I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for the warm welcome.
