I just don't see the problem here!<br><br>A few people asked a few questions, made a few inquiries, <br>and a few suggestions.<br><br>It was certainly not a reason to go off on a tirade about.<br><br>The attitude some people feel obligated to display toward<br>"The Denizens of the DARK Forum" indeed often chafes.<br>although I doubt the name is the nature of the problem.<br><br>Also people's bewilderment regarding what seems like an<br>unnecessary separation, due to what seems to be relatively<br>mild topics and discussions. But I can see where they'd get<br>that mistaken impression, since they'd not witnessed the <br>knock-down-drag-out blood-spattered-on-the-walls <br>fights that were there until fairly recently. <br><br>Personally I've been enjoying the relative calm, as a time <br>when topics could finally be discussed & explored without <br>being derailed and sidetracked in the attempt to shut down<br>discussions that might have yielded possible solutions.<br>While some members find a bar room brawl stimulating,<br>I find it unproductive. Lots of yelling, with nothing being<br>said may raise the bloodpressure, but it rarely leads to a<br>solution to a given situation. <br><br>That's why I was hoping the newer calmer discussion forum<br>would stay in tact, and welcome people to join that bring a<br>fresh outlook to the topics. LOL Fresh Blood, as it were, <br>...but not in the literal sense! <br><br>My suggestion <br>of converting the under-employed "Member's Projects"<br>Forum into a place where the Alumni could set up a place<br>that may seem more familiar to them was sincere, but it's<br>not mine to offer... ...it was just a quick fix... ...I still<br>think contacting Stan and petitioning him to add a new <br>room would be more permanent solution, since (as far as<br>I know) it's just a matter of the Administrator pushing a <br>few buttons, and VOILA'! New Forum Section! <br><br>That's not to exclude them from the existing forums...<br>by all means... I welcome the new members!!! It's just<br>that I think "they'd like a little place of their own".<br>It would be like a grand resort... cozy family cabins,<br>and a open common meeting/dining area with access to <br>services & entertainment.<br><br>IOW they are more than welcome to take advantage of <br>the main lounge, The tech forum, and the "Soapbox"<br>as the need or desire arises.<br><br>I doano... it's just a suggestion... I don't want to exclude<br>the new members... but rather the exact opposite... <br>I just think it's better than "STFU or LEAVE" that's pretty<br>much what some others seem to have suggested. <br><br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>

Go ahead and re-read it. <br><br>Now you cling to this whole MC vs MM thing-- as if it holds any water. Well guess what? A lot of MC people are MM folks-- and vilifying a whole segment of those that participate here shouldn't endear you to anyone. It's just going result in more conflict.<br><br>And if you have issues with me? Well that's just sad. I've tried to be respectful to everyone I've come across on-line-- I really have. I bet a lot of people here could vouch for me on that (not that I'm looking for any character references). I can be a little intense, as I am a person of deep convictions-- but I try to be nice, which is more than I can say about you as reflected by some of you more recent posts.<br><br><br>
