Re: What to do with the Politics?

To me this is not a question of yes or no, but of a grey area - "how much?" Remember the oft-quoted metaphor (or would that be analogy?) by Oliver Wendall Holmes: Free speech does not give you the right to shout "Fire!" in a crowded theater? I do not wish to offer any implicit, or explicit criticism...

Re: What to do with the Politics?

I've seen in another forum subjects that are 'pinned'. They always stay at the top of an area and might include rules or popular subjects so that people aren't always starting new topics about the same thing. I've also seen 'sub-topics' used so that you might see 'Israel' in the politics section bu...

Re: What to do with the Politics?

Circling back to Jarkko's original suggestion, there have been within this past 6 weeks or so, so many "new" Politics topics introduced -- and nearly all about US or Israeli issues, that I agree that all these "new" topics should be merged into either a US or an Israeli thread. Is that the best solu...

Re: What to do with the Politics?

Jarkko, I reviewed your introductory post this morning, and I ask if the politics posts are consuming too much time and band width, i.e., money? I know it must be time-consuming to monitor post after post after post in a thread which is only kept alive by a handful (as in less then 3) members. After...

This is nice. How about a title along the lines of . . . "As yet, Untitled?"

Re: I wonder

Some things I never outgrew. "The ants go marching" was the first song I ever learned, and I must confess, it's still the one I sing to myself when no one else is around to snicker.

Re: Master Song

.you view these words from your own "reality" as I stated in my previous post). The "wine and bread" is not exclusive to the Christian eucharist. It is the basis of the Jewish Kiddush....sanctification of any holiday meal....particularly in the order of wine (Kiddush) and then bread (Motzi). The "t...

Re: Master Song

Just want to add, I just went to the Diamonds in the Lines site, & there is a quote where Leonard said: "I'd like to sing a song which is called the Master Song, and it's about the Trinity. . . Leave that for the scholars: It's about three people" By "leaving it for the scholars" he could be saying...

Re: 10 all time favourite albums

Oh. This is a hard one -- the primary difficulty being retained loyalty to albums and artists who played significant roles in my younger lives. Do I remember my erstwhile passion and include them in this numbering? I will not include the Monkees or other Bubble Gum masters from my childhood. But wha...

Re: What to do with the Politics?

How about simply ring-fencing the Politics section by taking posts to it out of the list of new posts (assuming it's technically possible to do it)? Those that are interested can go straight to the Politics section to see what is going on there; those that want to stay well out of it need not be tr...
