I have been away from the MB since I posted that, so I just got back now and saw the responses.
What a great group of people responded, and what an intelligent and thoughtful discussion ensued.
Alan raised very good points, (and I nearly wanted to jump off the balcony when I realized I posted something he wished I hadn't- VERY SORRY!)
But then the responses to his point were also well taken. Yes, it was a promotion for yahoo, but not only is a small promotion better than none, but also the followups turned us on to more great information-
From G Smith- that there was also an NFL promotion, wish I had seen that yesterday
From Alan- to read the fine print, and that the BMW effort literally raised 100 times the money- nice to know that BMW did that
and the people who have spoken up to be supportive of TBell's wife and others who are dealing with this terrible disease- thank you!
I am glad if it gave TBell a chance to let us know what is going on, so we can all wish him and his wife speedy recovery, was it y2kguru who shared the link to more information? Well whoever, thank you all for making something even better of the yahoo promotion.
This is what makes the Message Board and it's participants so special.
Thank you again Alan for the Message Board, and thank you participants for continuing to demonstrate a rare sense of class and sensitivity.
