To the many people that have made their "first" post

I have seen many people say this was their "first" post, that they were basically lurkers or from people that hardly ever posted but did now.
Bawb would have liked that

As do us regulars. What a great way to remember and share stories and make new friends. Welcome newbies and hello regulars. The silver lining lies within us and making this a place that would make Bawb proud.

Alex -

How are you doing? I know alot of the emphasis has been on the voices of the podcast but please know we are thinking each of you and wish there was a easier way for us to take away your pain.

While this is not my very first post, it is close. I made my first post on this board about a week ago. And I came to these boards from the podcast (a long time listener and lurker and finally came out of the shadows). I am just so saddened by this loss. But how wonderful it is to be among friends here who get it.

Thank you so much Alex, for taking the time to make new posters and those of us that don't post as often feel welcome to join in and grieve with the rest of you. It really is a testament to how many lives Bob touched that so many are now posting.

Thank you, Alex, for welcoming those of us who have just recently started posting. I am realizing with Bob's passing that it's easier to grieve here with this group who understands than alone, because no one in my world has a clue why I'm so upset at losing someone I never met but feel like I "know."

It's amazing to see just how many people were touched by Bob's life.

This isn't my first post on DISboards, but I think it's my first for the DIS Unplugged Podcast forum. And I am a first time podcast listener. I just downloaded my first podcast ever last week, and it was the DIS Unplugged Podcast. I was so excited that I finally got my MP3 thingy sort of figured out (I've had it for over 2 years). It was a great show. I downloaded a few more from the archives this past weekend and fell in love with the whole crew. I laughed till my sides hurt listening to many of the shows. I couldn't get enough of this "Bawb" guy, his Bawb-isms are absolutely priceless.

To the whole family at DIS Unplugged, my prayers go to each and every one of you. I am saddened that you (and we the listeners, even the new ones) have lost someone who has meant so much to so many people. I look forward to hearing past podcasts, and learning more about Bob and his Kaht adventures.

He will be truly, truly missed.

I think it is great that so many lurkers are posting about Bawb too......what an outpouring of emotion from so many. I too have been thinking about you Alex, my deepest sympathies

This is exactly why I LOVE the Dis. You don't have to write 23.5 posts per day to be taken seriously. And in this sad situation, we can all grieve together.

Thanks so much for making us newbies feel welcome and not out of the loop. I listen to the podcasts regularly during my drive home from work and it always makes the drive seem so much shorter. I've had many LOL moments, many of them due to Bawb! He will be greatly missed for sure. I haven't been able to stop thinking about him since I first read Pete's post. And it was with a heavy heart that I listened to the last email show yesterday afternoon. I almost didn't, but I did and it was great to hear Bawb...so happy and so full of life, and SO funny!

This is my first post on the podcast board...I loved listening to Bob on the podcast, and I will miss hearing his voice.
My future husband has to understand that I have been, and always shall be a Star Trek fan.

After months of listening to the podcast and just reading the boards I hesitanlty signed up. I thought if I ddin't post than maybe I wasn't completely obsessed. When I finally posted I didn't even introduce myself. I jumped in feet first and no one batted an eye! I am still considered "new" I have appriciated this podcast more than you could know and nothing can out a smile on my face like Disney or Bob, or really the rest of the crew on the podcast.

You are are part of my family every week. I was in tears on the way home from bringing my daughter to school today.

I understand that this is a hard time for. I know you are going to mourn, but I hope you know how anxious we are to hear your voices. It's like a family. We just want to know you're ok...well it will be a while... Thank you for posting your thoughts. It was comforting to us, I hope it was a comfort to you to share!
