Not outraged Red,... just an interested semi-outsider.
I still think 90% of the issues here could have been avoided if someone had just spoken up a couple of months ago with a thread along these lines:
"Listen up! This is going to be a bit of a shock to most of you, but if we all work together on this we can make this transition go smoothly. There are going to be some big changes around here starting now. We feel the Harbor has gotten off-track as of late, and we really wish to correct this for the good of everybody.
Here's what's going to happen, what we want to see and not want to see in the future, and here's why were doing all this now...
... Any question, comments or suggestion? Feel free to contact us. We are warning you now so you won't be surprised, but in the very near future we will be closing some threads, as well as talking to some users in private about posting habits and styles in order to try to get everyone on the same page with this. Please do not take it personal or be offended if we close a thread you started or contact you by PM. We just want to do what we feel is best for the future of forum.
Thank you all for your understanding and co-operation in advance. OK, As you were. - The MI Mod-Squad."
