Over the last week or so, I am starting to come to the conclusion that these forums, with the exception of Out There!, do not see much action.
On a positive note, for newbies, this makes it wide open and you can post for the most part whatever you like with little fear of reprisal or harsh commentary.
That is a good thing in some ways (confidence), and not so good in others (isolation). Either way, I encourage newbies to post for the experience.
Flame on, my brothers...
