I don't get on here all that often as the web is a much bigger place now since when I joined but I will say that for the most part the people on here and in particular the people who run this site sit far above any of those I have come across on the multitude of mixed interest web sites I visit. Wouter has managed the right balance between control and freedom to express what one feels. UCP is a page I know I can come to and have a laugh and a bit of banter with people from all over the world and get the feeling we are "all the same" even if we don't all think the same.
Merry Christmas to you all and thanks for your "friendship".
