I really like the direction this forum is going. Good stuff! Good topics, good discussions. Lots of thought going on.
I hate to have to keep a constant eye on things when discussions get heated. Everyone's entitled to an opinion, so I don't want to get into editing posts, but the moderators have been asked to do a specific job, which includes reducing the BS and personal attacks. So far, I've been pretty loose about things getting off topic or people having one-on-one exchanges, but I won't tolerate name-calling and the like getting out of hand.
I just had to lock my first thread and delete some of the posts, which is why I bring this up. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want this to be a free-thinking, free-flowing exchange of thoughts and ideas, but personal attacks are where I draw the line, as per the request of the people who asked me to do this job. If you have some sort of issue with someone or their opinoins, just walk away. It's only the internet.
Otherwise, thanks for making this the cool forum we'd hoped-for when planning it!
