: Hello, Gayle ...
: Yes, there is a natural lull from time to time, and that is partly (mostly???) at play here. That's to be expected.
: However, there is a bit more. Nothing too consequential, as far as I can tell, but since it is there, may as well address it.
: Firstly, Emma has been good enough to reply privately so we now understand her references. Thank you, Emma.
: You know, a house divided can not stand. There are some who seem intent on either taking offense at every little thing or seek simply to stoke the fires of factionalism. Why? It doesn't really matter, I suppose.
: If one is enjoying this web site & the MohicanLand community that has been created, then why engage in disruptive, negative behaviour that only serves to encourage Rich & I to consider weighing the merits of interactive cyberspace? There's no point. Nothing good can come of such things.
: If one is a *lurker* who has, perhaps, a previous *jaded* history here & seeks ANY opportunity to sow the seeds of division, then such a person truly wishes to destroy this entire virtual community/venture & there is nothing I can say to such a person. One such as this will go on & on & on. It would be up to each of you to discern & use good judgment when contacted by folks whom you've never heard of before who wish to stir the pots.
: Now, I KNOW my Edict post has been singled out by some as allegedly being malicious. Wow! What can I say other than fantasy truly does have a place in MohicanLand! Has humor become so rare & obsolete that one can no longer recognize it when it appears? How sad. Pathetically sad.
: Defend it? Nope! Add to it? Yes! If anyone truly finds offense in such satire, really, you ought to step back a bit. As far as I know, some who claim offense have never been heard of or from before. Without understanding or interacting in the satirical/humorous nature of this board, one can hardly be justified in rallying the troops in *opposition.*
: Do you have a problem with something said? Send ME an e-mail!!!!
: And PLEASE have the courage to put your name to it! Otherwise, one must question the motives behind your *complaints.*
: Having said that, I must add that we fully realize the enjoyment people get from this place. We are VERY glad for that. Very.
: So, what I think is needed most is a long overdue edition of THE COURIER - where EVERYTHING you say or haven't said can & WILL be used against you!
: Other than that, everyone needs to simply enjoy & utilize this board for positive intentions.
: And ... we will be adding a picture of the Raffle Wampum Sash & Choker later on! It's gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't agree with you more. I thoroughly enjoyed your Edict post, and feel it fits right in with the way we have been interacting with each other on the board for the last 2-3 years.
And thank you for making my day. A new Courier to look forward too! Please feel free to use and abuse me and all my other "on-board" personalities for any ridicule you can come up with. :)
