This is so very true. What has been interesting to me is that people I had a good feeling about online, turned out to be just like I had imagined when I met them in person. The people I got bad vibes from, I either never met in person, was snubbed by, or if I did meet them, most of my concerns were legit. But indeed, I have made some wonderful friends here. There is hardly anywhere I can travel where I can't find a helping hand if I need it. I hope that they will expect the same from me when traveling down this way! After years of beating my head against the wall, I just don't post on threads with people I know I can not discourse with in a civilized manner. It would be like stopping to look at the wreck on the highway and get involved with it at the same time.
