We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: I say stay away from these boards and pursue your dreams! Who cares if the posters on here don't "favor" you, I bet not a single one is a judge- which is where is matters. And from what I can tell, everyone gets bashed on here, no matter what they look like/have or haven't done/ etc. The negativity that seems to fester here should not affect your decision to compete. We always come up against trials and hard times when we are trying to achieve our goals. Just think of this place as a trial... Blessings and good luck in your competition!

[> [> [> Subject: I agree. These boards are not really very positive. It's because people can be anonymous!

Keep going with your dream!!
