Rivers hardly ever run in a straight line.
Rivers are willing to take ten thousand meanders
and enjoy every one
and grow from every one.
When they leave a meander,
they are always more
than when they entered it.
When rivers meet an obstacle,
they do not try to run over it.
They merely go around
but they always get to the other side.
Rivers accept things as they are,
conform to the shape they find the world in,
yet nothing changes things more than rivers.
Rivers move even mountains into the sea.
Rivers hardly ever are in a hurry
yet is there anything more likely
to reach the point it sets out for
than a river?

Without your help this place wouldn't have progressed. And despite any and all negatives it currently MAY have, it has become a community.
I would suggest that drama and outlandish commentary has its place in society. 'Jerry Springer' has shown us that after what 20 yrs on air ? However, we CAN change the channel and NOT interact.
The PZ isn't the blame and eliminating the forum won't purge the site of issue. We as members need to bond together again and work to make the place better. Without such efforts it can't improve on its own. I realize that it isn't always ideal but it is home and I kinda like it here. Always have.
It is what it is hun and I have faith it will continue to improve...call me crazy...lol
There are 3 or 4 critics who post here regularly. Let them be the moderators.
