Holy Mackerel, I know in general, I am so far behind that I think I'm first...but I can't believe it took me this long to get here, and right off the bat from ready the posts I feel it to be comfortable place already.....how nice to be in the "Inner Sanctum"....mmmmmm...guess that ages me
I agree that the administration should have a relatively effective grasp on things should it get hairy on a message board, when a poster pushes the limits of civilized communication and if registering with a legitimate email address is all it takes I don't think anyone who has some intent of being responsible for their posts through identification would have a problem.
It's nice to see you all here and I hope many of the other folks who post responsibly on the Shed find it and come over also. As Douglas said, it is a place to share and discuss and ask questions and not have to feel that there will be an incoming sniper attack coming from an anonymous source....I do have to confess that I have not logged in every time on the "other side" and made a comment or two, but nothing hurtful or demeaning, those kinds of things make me cringe no matter who they are directed at. IMHO, in reality, we are all "guests" here and there, and especially while on the island itself, and should behave as such.
and yes Jules, this is great! RA
Each day, keep or find something to be passionate about.
