I'm thinking, based on my own experiences, and others I've seen since belonging to SP, that for those of us that are/were new to message boards and posting, it takes/took a WHOLE lot of bravery and anxiety control to publically spill our guts across the screen for total strangers to read.
But when, either accidently, or otherwise, no one responds to posts you think...UHOH...do I ever want to do this again? Next thing you know, you're hesitating about putting yourself back out there. That then deprives members of one of the most motivational, supportive, educational, and FUN tools that SP has given us, the message forums.
Because of this, I'm going to try my best not to overlook a post, and I will respond as soon as I possibly can. I don't ever want one of our team members to feel hurt or discouraged because they took a leap and joined the community, only then to be "forgotten." It's important that everyone feels like they matter, because they do!
