This is simply my observation over the past few months concerning FoxFyre's Coffee Shop thread. She built that thread as a place to unwind from the politics on this board. A place to to relax and have some fun and camaraderie with fellow posters on this board. A place absent of political discourse and disagreement. A place open to everybody regardless of political persuasion. It is truly one of the most non-partisan threads on this board, it is devoid of political argument and partisanship. Friendships are built. Fun happens. Flames are absent. Foxfyre is no moderator, the thread is self moderated by the people that post in it. Why is it that so few people from a liberal perspective visit and post in the Coffee Shop?
