But it seems (and I could be wrong, I'm not here as much as I used to be) like there is an abudance of threads today that seem to be more of a bid for attention than discussion or humor.

From politics to grade-school snickers. *sigh*
Where are all those thoughtful and smart posts that regulars used to be famous for?

I agree, Shannie. There have been some lame threads lately. I thought they were supposed to be discussions, not one way commentaries. And, I so don't want to be caught in the middle of mud-slinging politicos.

Say, you start one on the topic of your choice, and I promise to talk to you, not at you.

I said this same thing to someone last week.

Not much fun anymore!!! Notice many of the old regs are gone!

I currently have a sinus and ear infection. I'm hating life right now, so I'm a bit quiet.

Hi all, anyways. :)

ReynaVoop - get better soon!

Reyna and others - I think some people got thrown off when Amazon broke up a few threads that had gotten pretty long. (Hey, it is their site and we are lucky they haven't shut it down!) But, it did kind of unsettle the flow.

Plus, I think the warmer weather is distracting a lot of us. You, know, gardening, mowing, etc.

If we all drop in when we can, it can still be a good thing. With the usual basics, like no name calling and everyone gets to keep their own opinion.

Heyyyy Chai and Monni!!! *waving cheerfully*

You know, it's a good point about better weather...hope you're taking care of yourself, ReynaV.

When old groups break down, make a new one. That's the beauty of these forums. There is always someone to talk to no matter what time you are free. I used to stay to one or two threads but now travel around a bit when my buddies aren't online. I will keep my eye out for you all.

At least there haven't been any stupid threads that just parody the title of another thread with a "witty" one liner inside. Biggest waste of space ever.

We've missed Java & Chai on our daily "predictions" thread :( We just chit chat on there & we stay away from Religion & Politics. I hope you'll stop back by sometime!

Shannie, I agree with you that there is probably quite a few people here trying to get attention, but politics is a topic that is not nearly enough discussed publicly in this country. If people dare to do it while they can stay anonymous online I think this is a great step forward. Have a good day!

Yes, a political DISCUSSION is a good thing. But every one I've seen here has quickly gone from discussion to bashing those whose beliefs are different. Same with religious threads.

It is hard to attract open minded people who want to learn something without bringing in the trolls.

Yes, I have to agree the threads these days are not what they were, sometimes not even worth reading. Sorry to hear about the sinus infection ReynaVoop, they are the worst:(

Wow, I intended to drop back by here earlier but couldn't get onto Amazon at all. I hope you all had a great day and are staying cool.

We were hammered with the rain last night and this morning but just missed the high heat. It is on it's way though.

I wonder what was going on with Amazon?

Get out of the GBF and explore some of the other forums.. There are a number of them where actual discussions take place..
