An idea, for the good of us all. October 24, 2006 8:16 PM
It seems to me that this group has some real potential to take off as a place where all political affiliations can gather without fear of being taken advantage by one view or the other. Well, minus the little spats some of us seem to get into, it all has been kind of docile.
I am giong to ask that all of my friends join this group, and I would ask that you all do the same. This place can be as fun and non-dramatic as we want to make it.
Felix does not seem to be pruning threads or making anyone person feel alienated here. I think so far he has been a very fair host. So why don't we try to get the membership up in this place and see if we can make this a place for some real debate.
I know we all have the ability to make things go smoothly here if we could just take a look at our actions and try to keep it friendly and on topic for the most part. We obviously all like to get our jokes in when we can, but it is possible to do this without getting too personal.
Just think about what you are about to post and ask yourself is it really necessary, or could you tone it down a notch or two. I think you all know exactly what I am saying so I will stop here, and directly after this is posted, I will be sending an invite to all on my friends list.
