Thank You, Forum, You Problem Solving Baboon You. *loves*
This is just my little note saying thanks to the forums.
I wrote up a message with something I've been struggling with, but as soon as I wrote it out, I saw what my problem was, which was never really even a problem.
It's a form of journaling. I have a huge audience (in theory) with a forum post, so I have to explain everything. It gets everything "out there", whereas in my private journaling that I never intend to post online, I tend to mentally hold things back because I "understand them". Which is false. If I did, I wouldn't be journaling.
So this is my little note saying thanks and perhaps a helpful tip if someone is struggling to figure out a problem. Write the forum post intending to post it. After you finished it, though, just go back and read it over once or twice, and think about it. A solution will probably make itself clear. If not, then simply post it, because help is needed.

Agreed all around!! I have probably done this half a dozen times in the last year here.....I write it all out, read it before posting, and have that 'ah ha' moment and just delete the post because it was now a pointless exercise.
The act of spelling it out for others really helps me look at something anew....or it is magical forum powers....one of the two
