A few comments from our readers, or is that users? We reproduce some pats on the back so that potential contributors can be re-assured that VolResource is appreciated and worth supporting. More newsletter comments on the sign up page.

Note: we haven't updated this selection for quite some time, not because no one loves us any longer or that we don't appreciate your kind words, but more that keeping the rest of the site reasonably up-to-date is more of a priority.
