Was that your way of submitting your application?

I can't help thinking ... too soon.

In fact this thread is kinda too soon.

Sadcryface

I thought the thread was too soon as well, but I thought it was best to be asked. This is in no way meant to be disrespectful to KC in any way.

Also, what do you mean submitting my application?

Well, the longer one is attached to a group - even virtually - the more it feels like a real community. No one wants to disallow or forbid someone to be a part of an organic community; it's just sometimes necessary.

However, the very idea of progress often means accepting the fringe to challenge growth and expand diversity. Evolution doesn't come about easily. Wink

I have always felt it was more like pruning off dead or diseased growth from a favorite plant. Necessary and making it healthier in the process as long as one does not overtrim.

when I saw the words new administrator and I am Ryan together I thought that I am Ryan was crowned the new emperor of the forum. (administrator)

I was thinking to myself, first there's a rumor that is banned and then all the sudden he's administrator. that guy's got some skills! Smile

Possibly. I like to look at "atmospheric disturbances" as an opportunity to reflect. (or bitch)

To me, an unpopular idea, might be seen as a virus and do damage. However, that same virus might give insight down the road and prove to be a somewhat potent vaccine against an even more damaging malady. It would be a shame for someone to not gain that insight because the vaccine wasn't given a bit of a chance. The simple idea of giving a voice to dissent, can often be quite an unpopular idea.

Of course, we're not talking about plants or virus; we're talking about a community of people. Many here struggle to fit into their own skin, let alone an entire community. Shy

It's an odd sensation the first time; it's like going into the death chamber to perform an execution... it's in a specific area and there's a strange solemnity about it.

Luckily, my first time was a nazi ... it was a relief.

Strange, I've never got that feeling when banning someone off my sites Tongue

Do you run a forum of some sort? I'm interested!
