    I may not be a new kid, but you don't see much of me because I never really have anything worthy to add to many conversations. I will say I do miss some of the fun back and forth from awhile ago. Ken is one of the funniest people here, and is one of the people that makes this place worth coming back every so often to see what's going on. I think amnesty would be great.

    And if they do want to come back, some of them have to remember that in this case, beer and peanuts don't go together all that well....the beer tends to override the nut.

    The shells already got thrown on the floor. If they want to get up off of it, it's their call.

    I think it depends on the type of conversation last had.
    I think pride and last word itis can be a plague.
    and I do not think it is all one sided.
    but "WE" in this goofy game we have are more often than not the type who will cut off noses to spite faces.
    and not pick up the phone. And now, as we all have the phone in the pocket will do...
    AND I KNOW YOU ALL HAVE..
    when ya have that awkward call to make.... send a text!!!

    Well, not to speak for Happy,
    or any of the other Drarfs.
    I think what he may be thinking of is a simple janitor mouse click.
    like sending a text instead of making an awkward call.

    And like that Uncle who just got out of re-hab that we all have that comes to Thanksgiving dinner.
    Nobody Shouts "HEY YOUR OUTA RE-HAB" but just carries on with pass the taters Fred, like nothing ever happend.
    Thats how my family keeps the fun in dysfunctional.

    SW Ontario special in its own way Hard to explain. I thought our state birds were the politicians in Toronto (what they think down there is our capital of Ontario) . And we are east of Michigan and north of Lake Erie and Ohio. Great having those two neighbors. Michigan is our top trading partner. This adds some sanity to the socialism present. Actually believe it or not the state bird is the Loon. Nice eh!

    Well, that is not really an amnesty program. That gets into apologies, whether apologies are good enough, whether the sins are real perceived etc. etc. It defeats the whole purpose of amnesty in the truest sense of the word. Amnesty provides a clean slate. Without grudges, etc.

    Amnesty may not be the right term, then. If blanket forgiveness/amnesty is given, what makes the forgiven play by the house rules?

    I miss most of the banned as well, but I don't miss some of the arrogant rudeness and condescending way some of them acted. If a clean slate is wanted, they should have to at least recognize that they didn't play by the rules before and will try to do better this time around,and that requires some small level of dialog. I don't think that's unfair, given the resource this forum is...and I'm not talking about just posts, I'm talking about the business garnered from participation (dogs/pups sold, training clients gained, etc.)...which they all had. Respect is a two way street.
