    I always thought a message board is more of a dialogue. You post a message, I respond, you can respond back, other people can comment.

    This is more of a one way communication tool with little discussion. You ask a question, I answer, that's it.

    I think you answered your own question.

    If you have a sincere question, ask.

    If you have a sincere answer, offer it.

    Keep in mind that underaged folk read these messages, they ask questions, and they respond. I personally have made the mistake of thinking everyone in here is an adult (18 +), and they're not. I've had half-a-dozen questions pulled simply because they were too "adult" for the audience, which is truly a cross-section.

    So if you really want to talk to people of all ages, here you are!


    Merry Christmas! Happy Channukah!
