I think I've been on the Board almost 2 years posting under 2 different names. (don't worry KK, I never used name #1 after I started using name #2) There have been some discrete episodes when people have been pretty feisty and negative, and these times have always generated the kinds of discussions wer're having now: eg has the Board changed? and What does civility mean? is is too restrictive and stifling? These are not new issues.

However, maybe like some others I frequently feel overwelmed trying to find a way to contribute or be supportive. I don't know whether it's the number of posters or the fact that some posters are just very prolific not only in the length of their posts but also in the incidence of their posts. It makes it very difficult for me to follow threads.

I also believe that things may seem more negative in a prolonged way because there does seem to be more verbal jousting. There is no question in my mind that Dr. Bob posts a "please be civil" warning infinitely more times than he used to and I don't think that this just means that he's gotten more restrictive.

I'm not quite sure what to do about it. I hate it when regular posters leave. I'm struck by the fact that some of them really haven't left but now never venture from PB to PSB, although they used to regularly contribute to PSB. Sometimes people leave (at least for a time) because they're doing better, but I think alot of people leave also because they really don't feel that they fit in anymore.
