Subject: RE: BS: Welcome Larry Saidman.
Thanks Jack. But shouldn't it be as 'natural' a process as possible? What kind of a thread most 'draws' a mudcatter?   One that works on keeping us 'connected' to each other, or one that reinforces the excitement of a 'charged' conflict.....complete with innuendos, insults, strong emotions, distorted (and undistorted) logic used to prove the 'point' we want to make (as opposed to using such logic to open ourselves to different ways of thinking).   

If we look at what generates the greatest audience in terms of most media, it's no contest, is it.   The latter wins hands down!

(Of course, one might argue that this response I just made is going in the direction of turning this thread focusing on the former into one that focuses on the latter.   See how addictive that kind of thinking is? [smile]
