On January 16 2008 we launched the YLF forum. I wasn’t sure how popular it would be with YLF readers, and I was totally unprepared for the extent to which I would get addicted to the site we created. I never imagined feeling a connection to online friends, let alone actually meeting them in person. I was so, so wrong.

Logging on to hear and see you express your style quotient is a highlight of my day. Thank you forum members for helping me by helping each other. I am in constant awe of your generosity, kindheartedness, perseverance, assertiveness, intelligence and wit. You make the YLF forum a safe and wonderful place.
