  • A big thanks to Adam

    This thread is dedicated to a big thank you to Adam Wood...

    Not just for starting NEIP but for his absolute humanity.

    He has done more for people that he didn't know personally, just names on a board, than I have ever experienced.

    Thank you Adam...

    I feel privileged to have met you in person....

    and lost …
    But the Republicans are racist.

    Thanks. I don't really know what to say. I want to thank all of the little people, I guess.


    Now I'll probably be called racist against Oompa Loompas or something.




    Seriously, thanks. I do care about my peeps.

      Yeah, what Gramps said. Adam sometimes amazes me with his kindness. Truly a good man.

        This may come off the wrong way, but here it goes.

        As a liberal on a political leaning message boards, I've often gotten annoyed and pissed when reading Adam's posts. At the first board I ever knew him at, that's all I knew him for. Then, we got to the next board where things were more neutral. I saw the same political posts, but I also saw somebody who would go out of his way to defend his fellow posters. Then, I saw somebody who would make people he hardly knew breakfast and would travel to help/be there for his friends. He's a great listener, fair, and very non-judgmental. He is a great, big teddy bear that I'm also glad to have met in person. Sorry if that came off badly. I guess I'm trying to make a point along with giving a kudos to Adam.

          Yes, thank you Adam... you certainly don't have to do what you do for all of us here. Especially for the past several weeks, with all the board's technical problems that you spent hours fixing.

            We like you. We really, really like you.
            May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
            Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
            And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
            may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                What he said.


                Thank you very much, Adam.

                  Add my heartfelt thanks! Adam is a great guy and I'm very proud to be associated with him even in a minor way.

                  We need way more Adams these days.

                      It's true; Adam is A Good Egg. But don't tell anyone else, it might ruin his reputation.

                          Do I really need to say anything?
                          Why is it when ya think you're finally moving on,
                          the past will come back and make ya start thinking
                          about things all over again?
