I don't wish to be contrary for sport, but I miss bmwcaw. I think his attitudes, while **appalling**, are not uncommon. Ignorance like his is all over, but I rarely get to engage it in anything close to the dialog we've all "enjoyed" here. Mostly its shouting, cursing, and flippin the bird. I know it's been scarcely better here, unfortunately. But I have so few opportunities for civic intercourse with the minds that hold such ideas, that I regret losing one.

I won't miss the venom, but I will miss the chance to engage and learn.

Then again, what do I know? I'm purblind.

Only engage if the smilies are the opposite sex, for one thing...

i may have asked this before, but im not a re-reader. does the search feature not recognize words less than 4 letters long? i'm searching for a thread i started a long time ago called 'how old are you' and it wont match any or all of the words.

Thanks for including a poll on that one.

You can't, of course.

I don't challenge for a moment your wisdom or authority to act as you have; that is clear I hope. I have considerable respect and regard for you. I try to throttle my annoying posts, myself. I saw very little of that from bmwcaw.

As to 11 smilies in a row, I just considered that a juvenile little tantrum, and ignored it as such. The other posts were certainly at the lower end of the scale in terms of eloquence and tolerance, but I did sense a certain sincerity, reality about them. That's what I will miss. The chance to try to hear the ideas behind the words. Here in the cellar there are special advantages, like no shouting (KINDA), no physical intimidation, and being post post post, it requires a certain amount of thought that strictly oral communication does not. Best of all, it was a two way street. I can read strictly expressive diatribes like his elsewhere, but only here could I have any hope of a conversation.

Let me repeat: I fully support your authority and your actions.

Let me add: thank you, sir, for this wonderful forum.

Hey UT... I can't donate through Paypal, seeing as how I dont have a credit card and I'm not too keen on telling the folks about this place... so next time I'm in the states I've decided I'm gonna drop a few bills of any denomination I can spare in the mail, where should I send them?
