      There may be a Guild forum, but perhaps the more pertinent question is as to why people should have felt the need to create a separate independent e-group on which to discuss Guild matters. It would suggest a lack of faith in the independence of the Guild forum.

      Thanks Ian. I find the comment about egroups somewhat interesting as
      there is a section on the G0G Forum titled Guild Matters with this
      description "This Forum is only for comments about the Guild and how
      it is run." Seems to me that if a member has an issue with the G0G,
      either negative or positive, he could voice that issue on the G0G's
      own forum. For some of us that is the only way we can communicate
      with other members and see what their thoughts are on the various
      issues. If the forum is going to be for "attaboys" only then what is
      the point of having it?
