Dennis, I agree with you, my post was meant to be "tongue -in-cheek", but I couldn't find a "tongue-in-cheek" smiley!

I think your idea of people starting a separate thread rather than a separate forum is a good one. I guess it would end up in the "off-topic" forum. I'm not sure Jason would want to babysit the forum though! I think we all know what would happen to the off topic forum if it was not closely moderated!

It sure would be nice to be able to "tap" some of Andrew's energy to help out the young folks and the newbies. I would like to help out in that area as well.

And I agree with you, there has to be a better way than proxies.
Perhaps "referendum" style before the meeting, perhaps by way of mail-out or something? I haven't given it a lot of thought, but you've got me thinking now! And isn't that what this is all about?

What I found strange that I rarely posted there, except when something bothered me like one of the last posts (sorry if that was one of the instigators to the close down, it wasn't the intent). I learned the escalation process and took, in my own small way, some action, but I have to admit, my first inclination was to go to that forum. Probably the same for most.

Sometimes folks need to b**ch and complain, sometimes valid concerns but it gets out of hand fast and is difficult to control.

Though I doubt statistically that the zero growth as the direct result of that forum, it's probably something we can live without for awhile.

Hopefully the bad air will clear up a bit on the weekend as in the TO area we are over twice the maximum safe limit of toxins these last two days!

As for threads, personally I'm waiting to read a thread on Andrew's latest 8 cylinder 4 stroke design pulling a 15 foot spad
