When the site went down in August/September, I thought that was it - that Davjs had pulled the plug. Instead of the relief I thought I'd feel at all my personal posts and private thoughts being lost from the internet, I was distressed.

I was distressed because I used this site a lot as a teenager and into my very early 20s. I was a dick and I was not very nice to a lot of people on here. It was a place to vent, to express frustration, to feel superior to other people -- and I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.

But now that I'm in my late 20s, I look back on the years I used lw differently. I can appreciate better how and why I felt the way I did at the time - that the problem wasn't with me, as I had thought it was, but with others.

Without you guys I don't know if I would have gotten through - even if it was me arguing and insulting. And I'm sorry because I'm not like that - I'm not the person I appeared to be on here.

I have put off and put off writing this, but I am doing so because of terrible feeling I had on thinking lw was gone forever. Thank you everyone, I appreciate all you old timers and I'm sorry for the negative impression I have left. At least, maybe now, I can feel that if the site goes at least I've said this.

Nice to hear what you think about LW, now that you have become wiser!

Maturity is a crazy thing, isn't it? I feel like this site has helped me a lot too. Even though I had abandoned it for a few years, it was still here when I needed it most. I'm also very thankful for live wire no matter who wants to dis on it. I'm sure it's helped a lot of people and even though the personalities here are so diverse, that's part of what makes it special... we could do without the trolls who haven't even been here a year but it's still the same good old LW I found back in middle school.

I'm not sure if that's a joke? That's certainly not me - I never used that site.

Ah there's someone with the same username there also based in Dublin so I assumed it was you!

Ha! Well, I haven't been living in Dublin for the last year (its been out West for the last while), and I'm afraid I'm a long way from ever having to think about property (particularly in Dublin).

But if you're buying a house in Dublin, good luck with it and stay south side

Ah we bought a bit over a year ago in ranelagh! Tiny wee property and we will outgrow it within the next couple of years (first baby due in January), but it's home for now and a great location to live in.

Hope you're enjoying life out west!
