    I Owe you a Rep. I'm shooting blanks right now. I hope he comes back too. Pixie too. I think the problem was the work load. ;) It can get very time consuming. I wouldn't blame Dan for that.

    Wellllllllll, staffing is an issue in my profession. I think there are things to be learned. Like everyone else, I don't know all the stuff that has hit the fan. Obviously there has been a lot of it. But it does seem that a small number of people are mods and are here all the time....Nobody can do a thing all the time, be it paid or unpaid.

    In my field, some facilities have a lot of part timers who are as happy as clams. Other places they just go by the 'warm body' theory of nursing- they just keep enough warm bodies working to keep the place open. I don't know that the forum doesn't have this, but what is the 'philosophy' of the board? I think I see free speech emerge as a strong foundation, but what real philosophy you live by that helps maintain morale and keeps people interested in the job? Maybe more mods/admins with less time to put in would be a start.

    Circumstance. People are not all interchangeable. The Owners have a Game Plan. How many Years did Gunny hold things together here. He was the brick wall you ran into, when you strayed too far, right. He had things to take care of that didn't have anything to do with us or concern us. What I have loved about this Site, and why I came back, is the slack that does in fact allow free expression. Even now, this whole Thread, after the first post, is a Technical violation, yet, it's still here. People here are given allot of space to stray. That is appreciated, and becoming rarer, in most places. We have a good mix of Posters here to, that keeps the place busy. Now let me put you on the spot. What would a Strolling Bones Action Figure look like? :lol:
