Very very happy here. I've been a little nervous too about the population: on a forum like, say, BD's, it's normal for people to move on sometimes, and new people come in and the population stays steady...but we don't have a good source of new people. So even though we're okay now, will we always be? I hope so, 'cause I love this place. *shrug* As long as we don't shrink to nothing, I certainly prefer a handful of nice, friendly people to hoards of meanies... Agree: very nice UI, nice conversations, been happy with the moderation. I'm really sensitive to conflict, and I've been impressed at how maturely conversations are handled in the debate section, and I like that they don't seem to "spill out" into the rest of the forum. I like that I can hide my status. Just a silly thing, but it makes me self-conscious when people know when I'm on or what I'm reading, lol.
