There are many members of this board that seem to have very strong views concerning a wide variety of issues. However it seems that only a minuscule number of these folks go any further than their keyboard to actually make a difference.
If you don't like something get up and do something about it.
Bantering on the board is a fun past-time, but that is all it is. This is a microcosm in the www that is viewed by people that are looking for a little distraction.
Issues are not fought on the board - they are fought out there in the real world.
Calling each other names and other insulting actions really doesn't go far in the real world. Trying to make others change their mind doesn't work. It's all about uniting with like minded people and as a group changing the situation.
Are you going to make a difference?????
