    Yes, it is a new thing and something some have not ever really experienced. It takes awhile to adjust to and grasp the character and concept of a new thing. It doesn't come automatically to everybody just like the concept of the Coffee Shop was alien and foreign to some who eventually caught on and got with the spirit of it. Others never did and want no part of it and a few continue to make hateful comments about it. This forum no doubt will be no different.

    But it seems that some of our members are so threatened by this new thing that they are determined not to give it any chance at all. They aren't giving us any chance to guide and teach the principles involved. And I think that is just wrong.

    I've heard that it's not our darkness we fear the most, but our light.

    I find it fascinated that anyone can decide that other people feel 'threatened'. When I stopped laughing about that, I realized it's par for the course here. Projecting 'feelings' on to others.

    I have no objection to 'new'. I'm certainly not 'threatened' by it. XXXXXXX Not Allowed Here

    Because they XXXXXXX Not Allowed Here Just like any other new thing though, there will probably be some wrinkles to shake out as they come up--Save and I were just discussing one of them. And some folks are going to find a civil discussion almost alien and foreign to them, but might discover they have better skills at articulating a point of view than they thought they did. It will take awhile for an interested group to become comfortable with a more civil style.

    But I for one hope it catches on. If it doesn't, oh well. . . . don't want to think, or learn, or ponder. They want to react. And it's a very hard habit to break.
