this is true to a point, first place, it is not common knowledge to every
member about a coffee lounge, most of the OT posts today were started by
members that in no way knows any thing about one, and when it was mentioned
they still would not have known what it meant they way that it was
were right back to 3-4 folks that want to run the group.
the group is fine the way it is, it has always balanced out. Why change
something if it is not broke.
I have not seen a change since I have been here. Just all at once a couple
of people is saying there needs policing, that is exactly what has to happen
to do what you are saying, are you ready for a policed group?
I think that you are, or you would not be jumping in here pushing something
needs to be done
Like I said earlier, why be a member here if the members are not liked and a
person does not care to here from them. That's what has got me so confused.
People sign up, this is a group with knowledge, but now lets shut up the
very ones that built the group, so I do not have to here them unless I ring
their bell and then just what I want to hear.
This group can only go two ways, leave it not broke, or police the group and
break it's back
See, what most are not understanding, there are other casting groups,
POLICED, why not go to them? Because they have no personality, lack of
knowledge, etc. and why, they are policed. who sets the rules for policing?
you? me? Ron?
