Thank you, if I only knew how to do it?

It's actually pretty easy.

1. Open the page, forum or URL you want to post a link to.

2. Highlight the URL (it's in the address bar at the top of the page.)

3. Copy the URL.

4. Go to where you want to place the link.

5. Paste the URL where you want it.

It will look like the link I placed in post #7.

Hope that helps, if not, let me know.

Here is a good explanation by one of the Mos in the FAQ at the top of the About The Forum.

PR has some of the nicest people I have ever met, and it's a great place in general

That has not been my personal experience at all which is why I am never going to a Puerto Rican pride parade again.

I read the thread titled "The Plight of the Puerto Rican." There was nothing in it that I found offensive or untrue.

I was not born in Puerto Rico, but I am also an immigrant to USA from a country that has similar _public relations_ problem. As part of the growing up process, I went through the phases of being upset and even angry at the way things are. Finally, I decided to change the outlook of things by living an exemplary lifestyle and being proud of who I and my parents are. People will remember you and for what you stand if you give them a good impression. So, if you don't like how people portray your ansestors, then prove them wrong by being a shining example and by your achivements both professional and family.

That's exactly right my friend! With the passing of time I have learned that people respect and appreciate hard work, responsibility, knowledge, and the ability to communicate in a clear manner. These traits will usually cancel out any negative stereotypes we may have been labeled with.

Any one of us could be negatively labeled because of the way we look, or because of our cultural background. But, it's difficult to place negative labels on someone who's a responsible hard worker, and knows what he or she is talking about.
