Regarding the forum reorganization, note that I’ve added a “Breaking News/Current Events” sub-forum. I’m not an organizing Nazi I hope to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Use it as you will.
I realize that we live in the echo chamber era of Facebook so unless you get a hundred “likes” or a thousand views, it’s as if it didn’t happen and didn’t count, notwithstanding the Biblical truth that to God “the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”
In our world we generally require plenty of back-slapping and unless your hairs are figuratively on fire, no one is counting them. Unless one gets immediate gratification, it doesn’t matter. I was having this discussion with my brother the other day. He’s sort of like me. You can do something useful on the web but generally anything practical, useful, or just plain sane or normal gets ignored. We’re all becoming drama queens.
So I see this place as a monastery where the monks are all happy to work in relative obscurity in the warm glow of candlelight on projects perhaps a little more meaningful than sharing cat photos or posting political graphics. This is an exhortation for my fellow monks to make use of this site, and this forum, as you will. The beauty of the forum is that I don’t have to intervene. And if you are a “front page only” kind of person, well, there’s always Facebook.
If anyone thinks there is a need (or wants to use) a new sub-forum, just let me know. I could add one for photography, for instance.
