    1st: I am not by any means trying to alienate anybody on the BOC. If it was not for the awesome people on the BOC, there would be no BOC. You are all terrific and have made the BOC what it is today, and what it will morph into in the future. Those on the BOC are a special breed of person, and you see it every day.

    2nd: Not trying to bust the BOC Staff out. These men and women for the most part like to fly under the radar and simply serve the community. These are the people that fight the close fight each day. They endure an endless amount of negativity and much of their BOC experience involves dealing with the unsavory, angry, and the just plain nutty under belly of the WWW. Some have been on Staff for a long time, and have seen many highs and lows. It amazes me all the time on what they can do, day in and day out.

    I have seen companies approach members of the staff and try to buy them off the BOC. One offer was for $50 thousand annually, that is just how good they are. I have seen popular members leave the BOC and try to sway them away. I have seen their loyalty to us tested where many would bite the temptation to leave.

    I am thankful for the members, and make it my duty, “Strong Word I Know, Army Thing” to do right daily.

    But the Staff, you would be hard pressed to buy a team like this. Yes, you could buy the talent, but not the heart.

    Thanks guys, you know I appreciate you!

    Merry X-Mas!
