Open Forum - No Topic Is Off-Limits

Anything and Everything is fair game as a thread in the Open Forum - from the dramatically important, to the esoterically trivial. Please don't write anything *only* to test my limits as a moderator - the restrictions will be what they've always been since this community's inception - with some more open rules:

1) No discussion of religion or politics, unless its based in an educational, historical, or sociological context, which should *always* be the case; 2) No gratuitous profanity, unless it's rooted in artistic, literary expression - no word is off-limits here, within context; 3) No one-liners unless they are funny enough to make the Laugh Committee laugh; 4) No meta-posts, i.e., posts about posts, unless they're seeking clarification from your fellow poster who is your *friend here*, no matter how much you disagree about something; 5) No post questioning moderation decisions - these should be addressed to the forum moderator (me, for now) as a PM, and will be taken seriously, not simply brushed aside, and 6) No personal insults of any type, including about your fellow posters in the community, and also about people being discussed, no matter who they are or how bad of a thing they've done. For example, it's fine (encouraged) to discuss the gravity of an issue itself, but not to call the person a name, or make inferences about their character - if the issue is so terrible, things will be self-evident anyway.

Posts in the Open Forum will be moved to the proper forum (many of which may not yet exist), merged (if needed) into the proper existing thread, and titled and tagged so that they'll be easily findable within that forum, both by search engines, and also by individuals reading the indexes. Just as I do with the Washington, DC Restaurants and Dining Forum, I will make every effort to produce good, quality titles that take your hard work seriously and reflect the fact that these are to be permanently archived. My job is to serve you.

For now, the Open Forum is only for Members with 1 or more posts (I stress that real names are not required, but they are strongly encouraged and much appreciated, always lending authority and credibility to posts).

This is open season, and there are no more topical boundaries. Please be patient with me as I embark on this new adventure - this will be a learning process for me, and I promise you that I will serve you to the best of my abilities, always working for the long-term good of our writers and readership, both current and future. Thank you for giving me the chance to serve you - I'm going to try my best to maintain your trust and respect.

Cheers,
Rocks
