Thanks.

That is it.

You know how I have appreciated your posts and your influence, so I don't need to say more.

No nay-sayers allowed, please respect this space for people who wish to express their appreciation of a person who has been a force for good on MN.

Thank you dittany

I really can't impress on you the effect your posts and th creation of the feminist section has had on my life, only for the better. Plus I am challenging more in my daily life and encouraging other women to do th same

I really think the Feminist Section wouldn't have been created without Dittany's influence (among others of course)

Just kidding, thanks Dittany, you have sometimes scared the shit out of me but I have great admiration for your passion and also your patience.

Sorry, I'm pretty crap with words....,

I remember before we had a Feminist section mners used to abuse Dittany. It angered me. I awoke from my little bubble where women weren't really discrimated against and reaffirmed my feminist beliefs.

Childbearing radicalised me and Dittany articulated and validated my views. Heartfelt thanks.

IIRC the feminist topic was actually Dittany's idea.

And there are quite a few feminist groups that have been set up in the last year and a half as a result of the topic being here.

Thank you Dittany, all the hours you've spend on MN banging your head against a brick wall have done a lot of good.

(and I hope you come back.)

MN should have a special topic where people can post their love and appreciation for flounced posters.

There is Flouncer's corner , but unless you know someone's going you would think to go there and add your farewell.

You've made me challenge my thinking and ideas, and that is a good thing.

I love Dittany. We've had our run-ins, but she is someone I would love to know in real life.

And clearly I meant discriminated rather than 'discrimated'. [Embarrassed]

Some of your posts have left me Hmm, but you have taught me a lot and opened my eyes to lots of feminist type thingies.

If you take something from MN, know that you have made at least one lady re-assess her attitude to women's rights and calls herself a feminist again after years in the uninformed patriarchal hinterland.

Dittany, you changed my life, Not necessarily in an easy way Grin at the moment, until I get a handle on my anger, but definitely for the better. I think you have been the stone in the MN pool from which the ripples will go far and wide. I am only sorry that I didn't catch up fast enough to be a source of defence for you against those who weren't willing to even understand what you were saying, even if they disagreed,

Some people don't like that you have been so influential, but tough shit.

Thank you.

Inspiring post AyeBelieve. That's the thing - people didn't/don't like Dittany because she made/makes people see the world for what it is.
