Watch This Space

Those who wish to continue the recently interrupted forum discussions are invited to join Linda and Rose  in the new place. It should be up and running in a few days, and I will be posting the new address here. In the mean time, feel free to use the comment space below for any messages you wish to pass along to the group at large.

Hopefully 3rd time lucky, best of luck with the new site. What is the intended objective of this new site?

A Rose by any other name... said...

I hope that the soon-to-be new place will encourage relevant discussions of all kinds, allowing the "bees" to respond to the weather as they are programmed to do.

Linda is wrestling now with an appropriate "structural" design for a Townsend and Linda Brown forum, e.i. which Topics and Subtopics should be visible from the index page.

I am a minimalist. I hold that, try though we may, there is no way of imposing any upfront discussion structure that our ideation bees are guaranteed to follow. As we have in the past, we can ALWAYS add areas later if we need them.

I don't know if you have any thoughts along those lines, but if you do, please let one of us know over the next few days.

Rose,has all of this contention just been a series of misunderstandings or is there something else going on?

A Rose by any other name... said...

Yes. To both questions.

In the broadest sense, you are witnessing a classic battle of light and dark and the confusing shadows that fall in the middle.

I have to laugh when Mikado speaks of his chess matches. Linda is chaos theory in the making and you never know whether she is going to move a pawn, jump a queen, or throw down an ace. The only thing she DOESN'T do is back up.
