Re: Who started, manages, pays for, etc. this amazing forum?

I, too, am impressed with this community and in the past 10 or so days since discovery have wondered (a lot) about:

a) its roots/how it came to be
b) its funding
c) how, in a cyberworld seemingly immune to censorship even when needed (malicious cyberbullying against middle- and high schoolers, for example) the forums uphold high standards while maintaining an ethic of tolerance and inviting people with add/adhd of all ages and backgrounds to express themselves freely.

Last but not....I ordered this wrong, it belongs on top....I am touched and heartened by the kindness that lives here. I have in the past belonged to 5 or 6 on-line discussion groups and professional communities characterized by generic respect and cordialness. But none had a small fraction of the kindness, in pure form, that exists here. What I mean by pure is people helping and caring for others without looking back or ahead, without slinging personal s_ _ _ or expecting any reward. Nothing is more of a turn-on to me than random kindness.

Thanks much for this Q. and A.......Oh well, back to work
