i am doing my best to adjust, but now that i got over the nitpicking little things and trying to actually get back into the swing of posting, it just feels like the thrill is gone. i am trying to find the old conversations i was in the middle of when we switched, and i cant remember the threads i was in there.
i think the people i have seen on this board are really nice people...but that isnt what i was looking for in a forum. there are supposed to be 100.000 members here, right? but there are only between 1000-1500 online. are some of those guests?
also i wonder a lot about the guests from the old forum-we always had way more guests online than members, and i think that says something.
i cruise around and find interesting things to read, but it is all so down to earth and real...friendly and caring, but not intense i guess. i have a hard time finding a comment to make that would add anything to what is going on. we were pretty intense on the old forum, eh? i dont care whether a person is academic or not or even intelligent or not, but they have to be at a certain level of some thing that i havent been able to define yet, that thing that is missing here. you would probably laugh, but i would call it passion. even our most cerebral posters had a great deal of passion.
and you might think we could get ourselves together and continue on here, but that would be forming a little island in a big sea...kind of creepy really, sort of standoffish. i imagine pretty soon we will find out how many are staying and how many are going. if we find that most if not all the members who really did their best to give it a fair shot still wander off into the unknown...that will be an interesting thing to p[onder, wont it?
remember bonaventurian and his posts on metallica? THAT is what i mean...members like that we had, and of course even though he left there was always more coming. i think we had more wackos...made me feel like part of the group i guess. i am not saying it was a place for woo-woo stuff, we didnt have the ufo and alien threads often, but there was enough mysticism and metaphysics going on to keep me attracted, to make it more inner worldly.
i think we were a bunch of intense and passionate wackos...of course you are one of the more reserved of us, thea...
if we knew this was going to happen, i think we would have gotten together and found a way to buy the place off justin and keep it going...and if wishes were horses...
