    Hey Ranuka,

    Thanks for sharing this post with us and you are right. Forums can really benefit us in so many ways. I’ve shared this numerous times online now but I had a horrible experience when I was brand new in a few forums and it just scared me away from them. Some people can really just be very mean so I have not visited a forum since that time. Shame on me, I should get over it now that I’m more knowledgeable.

    I appreciate your detailed list though, very helpful. Thank you so much.
