I'm Joe, a longish time holder and silent witness to the chaos of the r/ripple boards, labouring under the illusion that they were an accurate representation of the XRP community. It was really lovely then to discover the healthy alternative in XRPchat; your original "Hi, I'm Bob" thread led me here, and was as good an introduction as any.
You'll see this is my first post. If I find something constructive and helpful to say or ask, it won't be my last!
Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) that I'm exceedingly grateful for your contribution, not just for the incredible wealth of straight-up information and clarification you're providing to folks that are emotionally invested in Ripple's vision, but also for the reminder that the XRP community can be creative, courteous, intelligent, driven and sane.
You've also rekindled my confidence in this crazy moonshot XRP gamble of ours. Thanks again!
