Thanks for this thread. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10920310
I appreciate you guys and gals keeping an eye on things, flu-wise.
I spend my extra time keeping an eye on things, radioctivity-wise. And, like you, if something happens worthy of it, I will call out like a rooster, make sure to do my best for people to hear me and what I found, loud and clear... I very much appreciate you doing the same for flu, because none of us can do it all...too much information for any one person. And we can't predict the future to know what is the most urgent thing to focus on next. So we rely on each other.... This is true community, in the most core sense. We each do our part.
All the best, I really mean it.
I think its fair to speak for all that have viewed, contributed to this thread up to now and even into the future.
Your kind words and the motivations that you speak of would parallel those here too in every sense of the word.
It is nice to be appreciated and to know that efforts are not wasted.
We are learning every day of better ways to communicate in different way, using new and powerful tools and methods that just werent around not that long ago.
And, to talk of community in the way you have done is an aspect that I think we dont yet fully appreciate, but we are learning, and the more you learn the more can learn.
I was having a bit of a winge a while ago about the apparent apathy of so many people.
But thinking on that a bit closer, thanks to a compassionate jolt from very kind "buddy" on here, Im beginning to think that the problem might solve itself through this sense of being a part of this type of community.
Thinking things like GLP/twitter/facebook, and other online communal structures that are emerging.
We shall see.
Anyway, please keep up all your good work and I can assure you that those here wont be letting matters fade too far away.
All it shows is how we all do care for each other and THAT is where the reliability and motivation rests.
Its also another reason why we must all vigerously defend the open and uncensored nature of the internet, we all own it and nobody has any right to change any part of it, not now, not ever.
Thanks again, we'll be watching.
