There were quite a few. I copied the MCF user list down to something like those with 15 posts or more - I'll clean that up at some point when I get back to work (nearly three year hiatus, doin nothin, nada, zip - when I work, I work on everything) and post that.
Yeah, I remember Menikmati. He posted a lot, and was pretty spot on.
Well, I saw 60 this year, and need to whip myself back into good shape or else my kids will overtake me, and the idea is to have them running harder and harder to catch up , and also not break myself up skiing, horses, etc.
Having kids sort of pushes you to maintain vigor. Thankfully, I survived skateboarding without breaking anything, and now am trying to survive ice skating without breaking anything. I'm trying to get them to skate with reckless abandon, which of course requires an example, which so far has not broken me
They like to rock climb, too, but I made the mistake of tellling the tale of us country lads doing freestyle climbing before there was a term - With any luck, it's uncool, and since it's equipmentless, there's nothing to brand
Don't go away, if you think this place is for you. We do have Macintosh in common, but I can't think of much else. I'm into totally different music tastes than yours.
Would you men who love posting pictures of women's breasts, and someone said "suckin on penis" and other adult content that is posted here, . . . would you show those things to a young girl in your presence and have someone in your company say such things with this 12 year old girl standing next to you? You might as well provide porn to juviniles!! But you all know I am a prude. She says her father does not mind. Well,I'm not sure what that says about her father?
Yes, we have had young folks/children almost in this forum. Well, not actually. This forum today is not what it was five or 10 years ago. You think moderators are tough today, well then just think back some years ago. Not everyone liked it, but things were a lot stricter in times gone past.
Just like the rest of the world and real life, courtesy, consideration and civility have relaxed to today's standards. No I wouldn't go back to the standards of 1800s. Nor would I go back to the standards of the 1950s. I will try to keep up with the times, but most of the time I do it sadly and sometimes disappointed in what sometimes takes place here.
In my own eyes, this is an adult rated Lounge. I would not have any 12 year old I know allowed to take part in it. The technical forums would be helpful for young Macintosh users, I agree.
Remember, these are just my opinions and will not change anything here. I will respect all the responses and your opinions as stated too.
Reboot, when you consider how I feel about this forum, it will not surprise you to know that my own feeling about the prospect of building up numbers of people actually participating here is about zero, zip, natta! I am referring to the Lounge and Soapbox of course. If people can avoid reading those two places, I think the tech forums have a chance. For Niel's sake I hope it does grow. Obvious that quite a few new folk in the past weeks have requested help. That is good.
I am not against young folks joining this forum to gain Macintosh knowledge. However, would you want your granddaughter, at age 12, to read the posts in our Lounge or SoapBox? If this young lady in question were your niece would you still feel the same way and as welcoming and encouraging her to visit the Lounge?

My daughter was debating politics at age 12 - not with the language that gets tossed about in the box sometimes, but she was always aware and knowledgeable about socio/political topics. We should always be aware that there could be younger folks lurking here and keep things more or less above the use of foul, abusive language to make a point.
