I really need to get a place for you guys on good discussions, I swear I'm working on it... Forums just don't capture all you talk about.  Easier to read and find on searches in other means! Smiley

Hi Nix,

Yes, these forums are difficult to navigate.  And the feature that is supposed to show me all new posts that I have not read doesn't always work for me.  Don't know why.  I find myself having to look up things by the dates since my last session in order to find things that have been newly posted.  It is a cumbersome process.  And I don't want to miss anything that might be pertinent or require my attention.  Such as Terrance looking for the book.  This is especially troublesome if I have been away for a couple of days and then play catch up, like I did yesterday.  And then there is a barrage of new posts by me, many of which probably get lost in the shuffle when the current list just shows post after post by me. 

I like the idea of forums divided by subject in concept, but in reality it isn't working so well.  As you can see we expatiate widely from the subject in the posts, as ideas ebb and flow.  This isn't really a big problem, but we certainly are not confined by the forum subject. 

I really don't know what to suggest to fix these questions, but there must be a better way to organize things and make them user friendly.  I am trying to encourage discussion, and would hate for the site design to discourage that.  On the other hand, maybe people are getting tired of hearing me talk  LOL

OK, come on.  You have to give us more than that.  Obviously you don't like Mel Gibson.  Fair enough, but why don't you give us more information as to why not?  This is a discussion forum.

For Huyen, attached is a picture of someone you know doing the John Wayne thing for the camera - I like to call it "LRRP - Looney Radio Research Person"].

I'm not a big Mel Gibson fan either, but that's only because I'm not a big fan of Hollywood excesses off-screen in general.  I read the book and saw the movie (although it took me a while to do the latter, the book had such a powerful impact on me).  I can't fault Gibson for his acting job in We Were Soldiers...  . . . but that's what these people are all about - acting.  What they portray and what they are are two different things.  You can have all the combinations:  good person and good actor, good person and bad actor, bad person and bad actor, bad person and good actor . . . plus a lot of shadings in between.  You get the idea.  I know.  I are one (occasionally).
