[discuss] Updated Web site

So instead of monitoring one messy mailing list, we'll need to monitor a dozen forums (fora)?  Not sure which is the more productive of two evils.  A single "general discussion" forum with properly displayed threaded discussions might be better, rather than balkanizing us at this point.  I think the cross-pollination here has some positive effects.

Maybe a single "board' wouldn't scale as well, but I don't know whether scalability is a key premise for 1net.

I suppose we will learn to adapt.


P.S.  Did the "Steering Committee" approve this shift?

PP.'S.  Will more than a few members of the Steering Committee ever come play with us?

I see others claim not, and apparently my message got through, so I'll try again this way until it fails.

I just went to the forum (perhaps amusingly, attempting to get to http://1net.org simply timed out) to see whether there were things I didn't see in my INBOX.  The only thing I could see was a note about website support and suggestions (none of the discussion I saw on the list today was there, for instance).  I didn't log in or create an account.  I sure hope one doesn't need to log in to read posts in the forum.

For what it's worth, I think the chances that I'm going to go to some special web forum to have any kind of discussion on any topic are pretty near zero.  (I have occasionally, when forced to do it, used such forum systems for technical support.)  I already have far too much volume of communication, and there is little chance I'm going to learn a new interface just for this purpose.  There are doubtless people who will be delighted that I've at last gone quiet, so at least that goal will have been achieved.

Best regards,
