Very well said. I have been a member on the site since 2009, but did not reach FJA status until this year or last last year, I don't actually recall. Athough I was ultimately trying to get there, I would like to feel I can add some value to a coversation, share a story, or just get a laugh between some fellow contributors.
As I began the journey, I also enjoyed most of the sites along the ride, but the further I drew towards achieving my goal, I learned this was much more about integrity, protecting a brand I believe in, assisting in providing feedback that will improve the products, but most of all being a champion for what FJ stands for.
Appreciate the post, glad to see this out here and I hope "those posters" take the time to read this thread all the way through.
