Milepoint has been in service for about a year and half. The site has established itself as a forum for discussion of travel related issues and concerns that is respecful of many views and opinions..... and mainly free of the bun fights and pettyness that one finds elsewhere. The naysayers proclaimed that changing the culture of travel websites was quasi impossible and that MP would soon slip into raucous discussions characterized by intolerance of other opinions and lack of respect for diversity. Well it seems that the prophets of doom are false prophets. MP has revealed itself to be a vibrant community of travellers either for business or leisure strongly motivated to help each other. MP is not only a community of travellers but also a community caring for the less fortunate. The resounding success of the Milepoint Kiva Lending team and other charities has positively impacted our world a step at a time. The success of various DOs and gatherings have cemented friendships and networking opportunies. Milepoint is a vibrant community and a pleasure to either post to or even lurk on the the various threads. Milepoint is indeed a small miracle......a miracle thanks to the generous and strong leadership from HOM and the daily respectful contributions of countless travellers . And they said that the marriage of a team's dream and a community of passionate travellers would not last........ Ad multos annos !
