Beating? Or a thumping hard massage? [In reply to] Can't Post

I would consider what's happening more therapeutic than punitive, personally. I think that we will come out the better for it in the long run.

Although I disagree with much of the original post that started the whole "Network(s) of exsisting friends " thread in "Feedback", I think some important points have surfaced regarding the Reading Room, that don't come from the original poster. I do want to see the same sorts of discussions continue, as they have a lot to offer. I just wish to see the repertoire expand to include other kinds of book discussion as well. The consensus that seems to be rising is not that there is anything wrong with the more scientific kinds of discussion, but that we have been conveying the impression that it's the only "right" way to discuss a book. I've been missing a broader spectrum, myself. I have a voracious brain that wants a varied diet. And when so many good people step forward to express a feeling of having been driven away, I think we need to look at that.

I didn't even notice that we had a Feedback forum until this came up. I'm glad I looked there. I think that everyone here should at least read the thread and make up their own minds as to what does or does not apply here.

Life is beautiful and dangerous! Beware! Enjoy!
