Hello!

I'm Gregg from Arizona. Please don't take this personally, but I'm a bit leary after having witnessed so much maliciousness on the 'net. How do I know this place is legit? :thumbsup: Any good write-ups I can read from credible sources?

You can understand my suspicious nature, since I came here after being attacked by strangers on the web.

I hope you are all you seem to be. I will be eternally grateful if you guys can help me.

Thanks,
Gregg

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

BC has over 500,000 Members. This would not be the case if we were not well-respected in the Computer community.
It is very good to be cautious given the nature of the internet.
Welcome to BC!

Thank you John, and everyone, for the welcome and for understanding my initial wariness. I checked it out and I now feel confident I've come to the right place. :thumbsup:
