You've said some interesting things in your post that deserve more time than I have to spend tonight so I'll try to address that later. I just want to comment now on your reaction to my exchange with bob since you aren't the only who seems to have been bothered.
Keep in mind that I did find some of the earlier posts funny and was trying to respond in kind. The flippant tone (and deliberate misstatement of what bob had said) in this exchange came from me.
I thought bob's follow up questions were quite legitamate and I'll probably come back with as many new questions for him as I have answers. Unless the thread changes direction or someone else says it first.
Got to run. I'm hosting a party with no takers over at open tonight.

> ***The question "The unoffical groups are available to everyone?" could come across as a challenge - in this case it could be interpretted to mean that you are implying that not everyone has access to unofficial groups, and that this means that they would not be a viable alternative to small town boards.
