There have been lots of posts about why the rate of posting has slowed so drastically - and I have probably made more than my share. But we almost never hear anything from Bob. Does he share our regrets over the loss of Babble as it was a few years ago? Would he, also, like to see it return to its former level of vitality? If so, does he have ideas about what would help? It seems unusual, to say the least, that he has almost never acknowledged anyone's suggestions. My experience of persons in positions of leadership is that they are always careful to acknowledge suggestions respectfully, while, of course, declining to commit themselves to any given position until they have decided what they want to do. The situation that we have here is enough of an anomaly to cause repeated stress and disappointment in those who have looked to Bob for leadership.
