I completely agree with Jim ..... I have been a member here since 2006 (I think) and although I do not post much (since I am completely out of photography for health reasons) I am routinely logged in on the Cafe and actively read and enjoy most of the what people post here or have to say here. All in all the nicest group of people I get to interact with.Certainly I agree with the sentiments expressed above. My wife and I have no interest in FaceBook and have never joined even though we know we are missing quite a bit of family interaction.
I would like to point out to Paul (pdk42) that while we all greatly appreciate Amin's ownership and administration of the forum, it has been like this from the beginning (2005) through three owners. It's mainly the kindred spirit and attitudes of the members that keep it so enjoyable to visit.
