Hey all,

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 and I really don't like getting 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, profanity, and the like getting out of hand.

I just had to lock a couple of threads and edit or delete some 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!

For those of you who've read the above and manage to keep this place an interesting forum for ideas and discussions, thanks. I still think this is a fun forum.

For those of you into the drama of personal BS, please start discussing or stop baiting. If someone doesn't reply to your question, then consider yourself victorious and move on. I'm getting sick of deleting threads.
