Wow, quite a post for a new person. Why dont you just post here and be part of the community. If you need to recharge. Log off. That is what I do and many others I know here.
Im curious. How would you accept people to your private board?
Will there be a test? Will you look at their post history and say "yep, your good to go" or "nope, you cant join on our private board because you are too new and still learning or I just dont feel like validating anything to you" or "nope, I disagree with everything you say, so you cant join". Will there be a secret handshake..er, keyword?
And im not sure why you think everyone here is suppose to be a nut. Im not and the people I have become friends with arent nuts. LOL Ok, maybe a couple of them are.
I mean, seriously. This is a joke right?
Oh, and a word of wisdom from someone who has actually owned/admin a few private boards in my past. Private boards are NEVER 100% stress free or completely peaceful. Might as well stay here.

They do have a private member board, called RATS.... Really Above Top Secret.... you need 5000 points to join the board, and 200 or so points a month to renew the subscription...
I feel like an advertisement now.

No I don't mean this as a joke at all, I think that it would be therapeutic for people to be able to talk with others who don't try to disprove everything you say.
That would be a wonderful world, wouldn't it.....*sigh*.....all happy and lemony fresh....
An alternative that would have 'bout as much intellectual usefulness would be to find a sand dune and bury your head in it.
Your idea is badly elitist and divisive....
a more serious alternative would be, the development of thick skin; that tends to work pretty good. You just need to be here a tad longer and get your ATS callouses built up real good.....
