It is a collective. For the greatest part ... lots of REAL GOOD PEOPLE here.

That said, I know from personal experience there are sharks in the AR waters.  I have been known to trust too much with the feeling of AR Family.  There are some folks who are not the persona reflected in the blog and/or comments.  That's the other reality ... the dark side if you will.
