I've argued my views on the various hunt test programs, and find I'm just beating a tack with a 25# mallet after a while. Every now and then, a "newbie" comes along with a unique situation, and after reading what the others have proffered for advice, but haven't hit upon what I would have mentioned, I might make a suggestion, but it's just another point of view.

    While I would concur with the astute Chiropractor that the Forum has changed from when we began meeting around the tailgate, it's doubtful we can get that back...too many have passed on from that crowd, so the atmosphere has changed considerably. Agree with you Russ, that we never passed up the opportunity to jump on a thread that was just too amusing (ie "Seating a duck"), and regardless of how demeaning it may have gotten for some of the posters, there wasn't any animosity or accusations about getting rid of any particular poster. Certainly MG was the blunt of many a thread from us jokesters...but it wasn't made out to be mean spirited, although it was far from being 'Politically Correct'.

    As to not seeing any threads or posts from Yardley, whom I personally enjoyed debating, I believe he was far too intelligent to continue along the Democrat path because it was way more baggage than he cared to excuse any longer. I have no doubt he has been a good Democrat willing to carry the water for the party, but, like me, discovered the party has left him...I just saw it happening during the Carter era. It's my suspicion also that he was no longer willing to be lumped in with the likes of Roger and those that were of that blind sheeple-like thinking. And while he wasn't finding much he might have agreed on with Bush (as many of us Bush supporters also found to be not to our liking), he couldn't side with all the "Bush Haters & Blamers". He espoused primary Democrat principles, from a bygone time.

Maybe it's just that there are so many more people frequenting the site that the intimacy is gone and the self moderating ability with it. I don't know but I do know it's much different than it was and not near as much fun.
