This doesn't mean "register on the forum and chat in #Bitcoin-OTC and do what all the other cool kids are doing" this means, finding a community that you would naturaly be part of that accept and supports bitcoin. Be that in you workplace, on-line, 4chan, or even in your church. The Bitcoin community is really just the people all around the world who support the use of bitcoins.

- Or you are into big computer rigs and high effective computing, then making the best miner may be your favourite way to help.
- Some people run businesses, or trade goods in real life. Maybe accepting Bitcoin for your services would be something you may like to do.

Everyone has limited resources, and not all people think the same way that you do. Just in real life, don't trust strangers, do you homework, and be prepared for things to go all wrong.
Don't expect other people to behave as you 'say' that they should behave, and then get upset when they ignore your will. Bitcoin is a big place! An exciting place, and even a dangerous place. Bitcoin isn't a mild walk in the park, but the wild west!
