Marathon Maniac #957
There was some very mature talk about CR invading RA at this site in another thread, in another forum, and I was very impressed with how it was handled. To be honest, if former CR "Boomers" create their own forum here, it is a moot point. But over at KR, the Boomers were invading the Masters forum that already existed with it's own identity, so I understand completely what runningbehind was saying. I read somewhere that any group that gets larger than 150 persons will tend to fragment, because it is difficult to have the necessary involvement with that many people needed to feel alligence and empathy towards them. So it could very well be that the former CR Boomer group "should" split into two groups, one at KR and one at RA to make it homier for everyone. Of course there will always be cross-posters, and they serve a purpose too.
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
