[/quote]The heart of the message board is advice, good and bad, friendly and hostile. If there's a wealth of generosity and sharing--and there always is--there's a like prodigality of insult and acerbity. Internaut beware: this board is quick to take offense and slow to take prisoners.
Think of it as a crash course in becoming a hip crip, an electronic demo for disability cool. Or maybe as the Jerry Springer show run amok. Either way, it's an invitation into the lives of hundreds of people with disabilities. The wit and wisdom here is not all truth and beauty, but there's a rare convergence here of--think of it--thousands of years of disability experience. You'll emerge older and wiser--maybe even fried to a crisp--but fully steeped. And you will, for better and worse, in sickness and health, through thick, thin and thinnest, have a connection to a community that's always there for you.
