      Well it was mentioned that there should be a private e-mail exchange
      for those who are interested more deeply in conspiracy theory. I
      think that this would be excellent. I'm a bit tired of all the
      conspiracy stuff posted there lately, and I would love to have some
      new discussion topics and see new people coming to the sites. If
      there's too much focus on one kind of topic, then it will attract
      people who are interested in that specific topic and all the others
      who would have to say interesting things, too, will stay away.

      Well, personally I think it will continue on the BBs as it was done
      in the past - conspiracy will always be a topic, and I don't think
      that there will be any splitting. Perhaps more people will stay away
      and only those who can contribute something to the conspiracy stuff
      will stay on the sites.

      I think that if there is a topic in which many people are interested
      it should be discussed for as much time as needed and then be
      closed. I think that it's also necessary to look for a balance in a
      broader range - who posts and which topics are mostly posted. I can
      see a clear imbalance at the moment because the same people come
      back with the same topics and take up much space on the boards. I
      can remember a time when Graham Forsyth's posts were discontinued
      because they said he posted too frequently and tried to impose his
      point of view onto others too much. Well, in my point of view -
      which is limited, of course, because I don't know what is going on
      now and what was going on behind the scene at that time - the BBs
      have come quite close to this point again.

      Well, this is just some ideas - in fact, I don't know exactly how to
      do this. Most of the time, I think, the balance comes about on its
      own and doesn't have to be watched so much.

      Hello, Ingrid! I like your point of view--you have made excellent points! I think that the HCS and TS BBs have been on a downward spiral for some time now.

        Hello, Ingrid!

        I like your point of view--you have made excellent points! I think
        that the HCS and TS BBs have been on a downward spiral for some time
        now. Some of the best posters are long gone. Too bad, but perhaps
        there is a chance for renewed invigorating growth. Time will tell
        the tale! I have not liked the emphasis on conspiracy theories going
        on over there. It seemed that no matter what anyone posted, someone
        would always bring the discussion back to the same old talk about
        these theories. Very boring for sure. It kind of reminded me of a
        child who discovers that Santa Claus is a myth--he can't get over
        the reality of Santa being a myth, so he goes out into the world to
        inform everyone as though it is big news! Ha! The truth is most
        people already knew it, except for the younger little kids who
        hadn't learned the truth yet. : ) It's all rather juvenile I think
        in terms of Spiritual enlightenment.
