Oops, a little late with that last comment..
I do get confused. All you kids confuse me sometimes.
Of course we confuse you! We're confusing! :Þ~~~
Okay...I take that back...
Hm... We should save number 666 for Anthony since he loves getting us past it in other discussions so much. :-p
I understand Dave's point - and I agree with it to an extent. I also agree that a lot of it is because of time zones and I'll throw in that the gatherings have affected groups as well. People that have met tend to talk more exclusively.
And although there is no "answer" - just bringing it to people's attention may be enough for them to do something about it.
Let's all be a bit more conscientious, shall we?
I'm all about that!! Smiles are contagious and common courtesy is free!!!
thought I'd make a nice intelligent answer to that!
I agree with you too, Dave and would absolutely hate it if you left! However, this is one thing I just don't know how to fix. I know that the Gatherings would tend for people to get to know one another better and to naturally post to each other. I have sometimes felt left out of those conversations, too, Garry, so I don't absolutely agree that we are "in on it" because people are posting. We still have no idea what they are talking about.
I also don't understand quite why "couples" come on here and talk to one another instead of sending an IM or email or phone call. I am not saying people shouldn't do that, but I just don't "get" it.
I'm glad, though, that we can talk about all this in the open.
I am always open to suggestions.
