I think it rather unique that this suggestion comes from me, but perhaps it's best that it does.
Rather than respond to all of the garbage that seems to be accumulating in that other thread, I thought I'd try something.
I did something similar to this many years ago and it didn't work out however .... you see before you the results of that failure. Maybe it's time has finally come.
It seems lately, that Robert has quelled his previously arrogant attitude and his overbearing pushing of his web site .... obviously due to his condition. He's apologized to a couple of people and seems to be limiting his replys to relevent posts. I don't know if this is a "new" Robert or if it's just a temporary lull in his arrogance, until he's feeling better.
I'd like to suggest that we call a ........
"ASA PEACE KEEPING AGREEMENT, SUMMIT MEETING"
Perhaps we can come to an agreement as to how each of us will act and react in the future in ASA. After all these years, of turmoil it would be nice to get the group on track. I have to say, that if there is any group of people who would have the experiece to know what NOT to do, to create chaos in a Newsgroup, it's got to be us. So, ...... it follows that perhaps we've garnered enough history and intelligence ( of lack of) to help us make this group function as it was originally intended to work.
Not to start out on the wrong foot, but it bears saying at least at this point, that since Robert and the promotion of his web site, and his arrogance is the root of ..... and has been at the core of most of the on-going disruption of the group, I would look upon him as THE key person, to come to the table to discuss what is going to take place in ASA, from here on out.
Have we gone to far to bring it back?
Do I hear any Yea's or Nay's ?
(Somebody please re-post this, just in case ......)
