thanks for an interesting thread, judy. i've only been here about a year 1/2, but was reading one thread from maybe 2 yrs. ago and it was different. it was effortless, fun, interesting, there were disagreements but nothing harrassing.
i haven't dealt very well with increase in posters. nor have i done well with the loss of folks whose advice i valued (i.e. greg), so i'm sure i haven't been much help. but imho, 2 things have made it more difficult to maintain a supportive, yet interesting atmosphere:
1. the board has grown so it's tougher to know each other
2. dr. bob has had to respond to that growth by "policing" more.
i would love to see new posters introduce themselves, as some have, take some time to lurk to get to know the environment and understand they can make mistakes while getting used to it. i would also like to see security against multi-posters and perhaps narrower civility rules.
or, the board can be broken into another piece or two.
