Disclaimer: Personal opinion follows:
Forgive me if I am stepping out of line as a newish member but,

There seems to be a lot of 'measuring' going on, especially on the website
mailing list.
If someone has an idea and is willing to put in the effort regardless of the
outcome they should be encouraged to do so and applauded by the community if
the idea is implemented.

Too much effort is being put into arguing, accusing, misunderstanding and
dare I say it, trolling and burning.
Our community should rise above these negative, destructive attitudes and
look to the future.

Personally I am not interested in what anyone has contributed previously.
People come from all walks of life and nobody is a master of all trades.
If somebody, anybody has a constructive suggestion or valid idea I am
willing to consider and embrace it with solid work and encouragement.
In my experience if someone approaches a task or discussion from
an inflammatory or derogatory point of view, they have near nothing to

I hope others share this point of view, and I encourage others to embrace
the positives within our community in order to achieve more than we ever
