"Fragile. Do not drop." - Found on Boeing 757

I guess my only suggestion would be to ask everyone to be more open?

Lady Astor : Mr. Churchill, you are despicably drunk. Churchill : Yes, Lady, and you are ugly. Yet, tomorrow I will be sober...

Human beings naturally split in little groups. They stick with people who have similar interests, and with who they feel comfortable.

And may I add, there is nothing wrong about this.

Dave, let me tell you, due to my moving all over the country (sigh) I have met many MN'ers over the past few years. And never have I ever heard anyone say a negative comment about you! I told you I think you are smart and friendly and a good member of MN and it would really surprise me if anyone thought any differently.

About cliques, I do agree with you. But I DON'T think this is a reason for you to leave MN or that people are purposely excluding others. I think it's more that people who meet a lot, spend more time together, come on at the same time zone, or have more in common in general tend to be friendlier with each other than with others.

You got it, Mimi!

I am aware of this. We are, indeed, all here because of a liking of mysteries.

And I'm not saying that everyone here isn't polite. Curtsies such as "Hello," "How are you," and "Good bye!" are given. I'm not saying people here aren't nice.

However, conversation with other people seems to be lacking. I'm not saying you have to become their best friend; if the opportunity arises, however, it won't kill you to talk a little bit.

It's time to try defying gravity

Dave - check your email

Jean - responded.

Dave, I agree with you on that -- that there should be more chatting instead of just "hello" and "goodbye". When I first came to MN, during the time I lived in California, I always made it an active point to try and include everyone and make people feel welcome. Lately, because my life has been much crazier, I guess I haven't been as chatty and friendly to everyone as I used to be -- so I'm sorry about that and thank you for reminding me.

I think another problem is when people use the common chat folders just to talk about planning the next gathering, or talking about the last one, it kind of excludes all the other people who weren't there.

I'm out searching for myself. If I come back before I get back, tell me to stay here.

You know, being the introvert I am, I'm not all that talkative, so... ah, forget it... :-p~~~~ I am quite the introvert, however. Almost considered antisocial by some people.

But should we move this to another discussion or is it fine here?

Well, I suppose it doesn't matter where we take it since I seem to have scared everyone away with my, er, antisociality. ;-)
