At first, I was hesitant to contribute any further to this thread, as my words seem to irritate and anger some members. (But it does confirm my
position that I have much to learn, because frankly, I was not expecting such reactions at all).
Apparently, some expect something very particular from discussion boards, so much so that they will find something they have no interest in just so
they can vent their opposition to it's presence (with much angst and anguish.) It is something to which I can not relate, since I don't engage in
bashing other peoples ideas without offering some kind of justification.
It is kind of off-putting when you go from feeling good about sharing a project to wishing you hadn't - just to avoid the wails of discontent.
To everyone who has posted their disagreement, or suggestions about where I may have missed something, or might need to rethink a perspective - thank
you. To those who are digesting the ideas, and are simply 'registering' them as something to consider later, thank you. To those who have
complimented my writing style, thank you too.
To those who read or skimmed the OP and found it somehow infuriating or repugnant - what can I say? Perhaps to say nothing is the best overall
response... but as you can probably guess... I'm not the 'stay quiet and unheard' kind of member who would tolerate that kind of treatment of any
other member, so why should I tolerate it against myself?
