It is pretty funny when folks use the word "cult".
"But I am trying to be a kinder, gentler kind of Quixote these days. "
Me too. I think about 3-4 years ago there was a lot of rumblings and fighting on here, and when the Iod forum got started it got attacked alot and I kinda fought back a little. Once the riff-raff was mostly gone, I kind got away from it all, as part of my self-professed mission was to ward those bstrds off.
"You know, some may think that this thread was mostly a popularity contest. I disagree. "
I saw it as an opportunity to be nice in the face of some folk who might not be nice, but looking back, nobody really got upset much, folks have been treating one another pretty good on this thread, compared to the past. I'm real glad to see that, people getting along in this trash can or whatever.
Admittedly though , I like to poke folks a little. lol.
