check out our new site at zetaboards.

w11.zetaboards.com/LJWDeserters

A number of us are already registered there, and plan to keep discussing things, including current events in Lawrence.

Liberty has started a zetaboards forum - a couple of us are over there already.

Check his comment above for the link.

I hope that many of us who have been discussing things on this site move over to his new one, and continue.

I can only get there by clicking on this link - isn't there a way to get there directly, so that when this story is gone, we can get to the site?

Your name doesn't seem to improve your posts - ie. "gutless wonders", etc. Sure sounds like "hateful rhetoric" to me.

Ironic.

Hey - cool!

Are you the moderator?

I'll see everybody there - of course, it won't be as easy to talk about ljw stories, but it'll still be fun.

Sure seems like there are any number of better ways to ensure civility and/or improve the quality of conversations on here without this change.

Unfortunately, they seem to have decided already, and aren't interested in other ideas.

Hey, thanks!

You're one of my favorite posters as well - I'll miss these discussions a lot!

Sure wish they weren't doing this :-(

Why?

There are many reasons that people might not want everybody who reads the paper to know who they are, and associate them with their comments, even if civil and reasonable.

I am one of the posters who has always tried to abide by the tos, and not post insults, etc. and I'll be gone - I suspect many of the people I like to talk with will also leave, and they're also in that category.

Ensuring a more civil atmosphere can easily be done by simply enforcing the tos, and banning posters who repeatedly violate them.

I think people should be able to express a wide variety of ideas anonymously, personally, and completely understand why many might want to do that. You don't go around telling your boss, customers, church friends, etc. all of your opinions, do you?
