I want to start by saying thank you to those who stepped in to try to administer this forum in my absence. I have been gone for quite a while and though I did not in my mind abandon this forum, for all practical purposes I did. I always intended to come back but the longer I was gone the harder it was to get back into this place and then finally I couldn't get in at all.
I want to set things straight so this forum can get back to being what I envisioned when I created it:
- The purpose of the individual forums should be easy to understand. There's one for friendly conversation, one for religious discussion, one for politics, one for fighting, one for garbage, etc.
My personal philosophy is that engaging with people who we may disagree with and who even make us angry is not a bad thing. In fact, when handled like adults it forces us to examine and refine our own personal beliefs.
I know some banning has gone on here and I am going to lift all bans so I can see exactly what the issues are and make my own decisions about them. I don't have the ability to read through all these threads and try to figure out who said what to whom and whether it should trigger any action.
I am now the only administrator of this forum. Rabid Koala is the only moderator. I welcome any and all comments and questions regarding my actions and inaction. I prefer that this be handled in this thread and not privately.
