We celebrated love this week. Millions of people throughout the world observed Valentine's Day, giving acknowledgement and attention wherever due or desired. We echo the sentiment here in the Live Community with a resounding community rally of 'We too!'  While still swooning in the aftermath of the observance, we boldly seized the day, with its unchecked outpouring of Valentinesqe accoutrements -- like appreciation, admiration, assistance, cooperation, gratitude, open source, respect, reciprocity and more -- to recount how we really feel about you and community:


We love our members

We love your participation

We love your discussions

We love networking

We love sharing knowledge

We love security

We love prevention

We love protection

We love helping each other

We love community

You are the heart of the community, the enduring object of our affection, attention, and the very purpose of our being. We are empty without you, crippled and compromised in carrying out the important work we do together. We must have you. For only when we are enriched and empowered by your presence and participation, can we continue to meet the evolving challenges of cybersecurity everywhere. And we do mean everywhere, because wherever you are is where we need to be: in the cloud, on your network, in your data center, with your SaaS apps, your users, your downtrodden and uplifted all. For we are one formidable foe against those who would even try to separate us, as we only have eyes...and ears...for you.


We take pride in knowing that we can't do this alone. We thrive on your feedback, we seek out your questions. You direct our path, our development, and to a large extent, our direction. You determine what's important based on what you need. We need each other -- it's reciprocal and wonderful like that. So let's keep doing what we do, informing each other, always landing on the good side of our shared legacy. And let's continue this commitment, dedication, and passion -- this true and requited love, for all we do -- together.


Now let's see what else is brewin' this week --
