mindseye: Well, this place was called a battleground earlier this week. I'm hoping to change the tone of the discussion -- my own tone, and that of a few others on here -- and I'm thinking that starting a clean, fresh thread might help with that: Let's assume that the situation as it stands is permanent -- censorship of any topic is unlikely to take place here, the splinter group that da_blissmachine created will remain, and the members that have departed won't change their minds and rejoin us. So, here's my topic: What now? How would you proceed constructively towards reinforcing the embattled sense of community and support we have here? What relationship (if any) between this board and the splinter board would best serve the members of both boards? If you're unhappy with Mark's decision, but choosing to remain a member of the board, what steps are you taking to resolve your ethical conflict?
