Dear USMB friends, I can't help but see some disturbing trends here on USMB as of late. The large numbers of trolls have clogged threads with unneccessary posts. Posting has dropped in volume as I (and I assume others) have found fewer threads worth posting in. Even reading many of them has become burdensome. There is a rise in the polarity of political divisions. I am not sure what can be done. Here's hoping we can find ways to be more positive and constructive. My only other alternative is to post even less. Not an option I want to consider. saveliberty P.S. Smile and seize the day.
