I want to give a huge thanks to AdLib for creating a safe place to think out loud. Planet POV fosters creative thought and honest conversation. I’ve asked this community to discuss tough, emotionally charged topics in the past and the discussion has always maintained the highest level of respect for differing views while fostering intelligent debate. It’s refreshing to find an online community that cares about every opinion, not just the ones we share.

Although I haven’t posted or even commented in a while, I am glued to the live blogging during the important moments like election nights and Presidential addresses to the nation. I’ll admit at times it feels like Mystery Science Theater 3000 when members of the opposing side occupy the podium, but that’s part of the fun. It reinforces the idea that blogging doesn’t have to be a singular activity and although we are all over the world, we can still share a common experience.

Congrats to choicelady for holding a spot in history. Here’s to the next 200,000 comments! Hopefully some of them will be mine.

Hi TakeInAPlay – haven’t seen you for some time and am delighted you’re here.

I love your “Mystery Science Theater 3000” comment – that made me laugh for how accurate it is!

Thanks for the congrats – no one is more startled than I that I happened to post at exactly the right moment. Only thing I ever won was in a high school raffle – a man’s sports shirt I gave to my Dad. I will get to use the mug all by myself!

Wheee!

Come back more – it’s wonderful to see you!

TakeInPlay, I agree with your take. AdLib and Kalima, and KQ have created a place for us to vent in a comfortable environment with friends.
I don’t remember if we have met but I’m glad to make your acquaintance.

A huge congrats to you cl for posting our 200,000th comment, and a big thank you to all our wonderful members and readers for making The Planet our second home, a special place to be ourselves.

Enjoy your MB mug, I couldn’t drink from anything else for the last three years, no dainty tea cups for me.

It’s a proud day today. Thank you everyone.

Hi Kalima – I will indeed enjoy and treasure the mug. What fun to win a contest you did not even know you were in! Best possible way.

Thank you for all you have contributed to this amazing site. PPOV is a very important part of my and many people’s lives. You all make it a grand place to be!

No, thank you choicelady, I’ve learned a great deal from you over the years, so thank you.

Hope your mug arrives soon, and Prosit when it does.

Congrats to CL. My husband loves his PP mug even though it was sent to ME lol. I agree this is a safe place where you can voice your opinion and even though people may disagree with you, they respond with civility. None of us thinks the same way on everything and I know I have some beliefs that others would not agree with here but, I can write about them, comment about them and the most I will get is a rousing response from someone who may think differently. How else can we learn and make sure our method of thinking is correct without looking at other points of view? We simply cannot. If you put yourself in to the rigidity of thinking you are right all the time, you are bound to fail at some point.

As far as posts go, I like Adlib’s post from that Higher Power. Sometimes humor is the best medicine. And in that same vein, Sally “Watson’s” Sunday Funnies. Who gets a paper anymore? Not me so my Sunday funnies are read right here on this site. And Kalima and her Morning Blog. What a great way to find out what is going on in the world around us without having to peruse several websites? Oh and her daily quiz is challenging as well. Then there is Music Thread, now run by KT. Even though I don’t always post, I always look at the music others have posted and sometimes am taken back, just like I am on Music Channel’s Golden Oldies. One of my favorites that I had long forgotten until I recently heard it, then posted it here is this one:

I just love this song. Congrats again to the Planet

Thank you Sue for your kind words and a special thanks for all of your great articles and tireless research to bring the truth to us here on The Planet. Take a bow.

No bows Kalima but it is nice to be recognized. Thanks

Thank you dear friend – great commentary and wonderful song!

Tell hubby to GIVE BACK THE MUG!!! Or at least share, right? LOL!!

If he were not using it, Melissa is so I am afraid that mug no longer belongs to me.

OMG! Who knew? I feel honored to have done that, however unwittingly. Kudos to kesmarn who prompted the reply – without your thoughtful comment, dear kes, I would not have come over at the opportune moment. Thank you!

Being with PPOV has been an outstanding experience for me, and I think for all of us. It is a place where reflection and good conversation occur along with humor and civility. It is our shelter in the storm free from the viciousness within both our civic culture AND public commentary that affects so many other sites.

Without PPOV there would be less reason to remain engaged in honorable discussion. It has offered us all a highly therapeutic means to vent, to learn, to grow, and often to laugh. We also have built great friendships, expanded horizons together, shared our sorrows including the loss of beloved PPOV friends, and created enduring actions we hope will change the world.

Thank you for the honor of the 200,00th comment. Thank you all far more for simply being here on the Planet. I am honored to be part of it all.
