Hi Everyone, Greetings.
I have a proposition for your consideration, it is this. In the short time that I have posted on this forum, I have enjoyed the "free for all" nature of the posting but have on many occassions encountered posters who have raised my interest in what they have written and felt that a deeper enquiry into their post is not adequately served in a free for all situation and sometimes felt that a quiet space free of everyone else chipping in might be something that other posters might appreciate. Whilst it would in no way undermine all the other threads as they stand, it might add a new dynamic to the forum, after all we are not limited by space. It could be used as a "one to one" basis where two posters can explore topics perhaps more fully away from the maddening crowd. Of course their posts are not private and can be read freely by anyone but to work it would need to be respected as a space set aside soley for this purpose. In a sense we have between us all created an on line community and are sharing something of our lives with each other already this i feel might take it to the next level (if such exists).
Thinking about it i can see potential for a number of possabilities, posters of opposing views wishing to debate things more fully or discuss more loosely with the aim of a better understading of each other as people, even becoming internet friends. It would be a fine achievement if it broke down barriers between say athiests and theists where friction has occurred, after all we are all human beings how can we allow just a small difference in a belief divide us. Posters of a scientifc persuasion may wish to discuss the latest developments with each other. Other posters may concieve other possibilities.
I personally have only limited experience on this forum and don't know if it would work so If you consder it would be a desireable venture worth exploring, or not, maybe you would care to leave your views here including ideas, comments or suggestions. It might be a good idea if you stated the following:-
A, if you approve/disaprove of the venture.
b. If adopted are you aggreeable to use it for that purpose only.
C. Maybe you would suggest a thread title, eg, "THE LOUNGE"
D, Comments etc
