Well some people do take things too seriously sometimes and after all if you
cannot have good natured banter what the heck are we here for.
as for the future, I'd not be so worried were it not for the problem that
all the fori (plural or forum?) not on servers in the control of basically
big business, and plugs can more easily pulled, and personal data
compromised much easier than on usenet generally.
I myself have issues with the forum mainly due to the awkwardness of
having differing interfaces in each one to get used to and no client that
levels the playing field as with email and news, for the blind whoo cannot
use touch or mice.
Its the lack of an overview of the page that causes the problem of course.
I'd not want to hold progress back however but I do feel its fragmented the
community with so many different sites and the inability to crosspost to a
couple or so when its needed.
I'd like to see someone reinvent usenet via a forum system, no not like
Google did as that is a nightmare, which brings me back to the future time
capsule unearthing. Will Google be the only way to view the archive?
as for troll posts, now, there are and always will be mischievous
individuals and I feel we should accept and welcome such innovative
ducks behind sofa.
I hope I grow on you....
I'm a Fungi!!!

I've published a new novel, _The Plan_. It's set in the 1950s, where divorce is a dirty word. That's nearly unthinkable for teenage Debby Hall, but when her father moves out, it seems the likely outcome. She is so distraught that when she discovers misbehavior brings her father back to discipline her, she concocts a crazy plan. It will cost her bottom dearly, but perhaps she can bring her parents back together!
The novel is available in print or digital download from Lulu (http://stores.lulu.com/flogmaster) -- and if you enter coupon code CYBERMONDAY305 at checkout on Monday, November 28, 2011, you can get 30% off your order!

Below is a little preview of the new novel:
EXCERPT from: "The Plan"
"I am going to spank you. Right now."
"But Daddy! I'm almost fifteen! That's much too old for--"
"Debbie, this isn't up for debate. I don't care if you're eighteen or twenty-one. While you're living in this household, you're under our care and you follow our standards of behavior. You've been acting atrociously lately, and it's got to stop."
"You don't even live here any more! You're not my father!"
"That's enough, Debbie. I'm not having it. Now go and get me that hairbrush on that dresser."
The teenage girl sucked in her breath sharply. She looked at Donald in alarm. "Daddy, you're not serious...." Her voice trailed off as she realized he was. She'd gone too far this time. Gulping, she got to her feet. Her knees felt weak. Her world was spinning dizzily and everything felt unreal, like a dream world.
She reached the dresser. The oval hairbrush was wood and it was heavy. She hadn't been spanked with it since she was a child, but she knew it hurt abominably. She had vague, nightmarish memories. It scared her. She picked it up and brought it her father. The gesture made her feel like a three-year-old. She stood squirming awkwardly in front of him, wondering what happened next.
Donald took the sturdy brush in his right hand. It felt solid, but the oval head was not very large, smaller than his palm, and he wondered if it was sufficient for a growing teenage girl. He decided he could only know by testing it, so he scooted back on the bed and patted his lap. He drew the reluctant girl over his legs.
"Daddy!" There was pleading in her voice but he hardened his heart. This had to be done.
"Quiet now. You know you deserve this."
Soft whining sounds were coming from the girl as she wiggled across his legs. He stared down at the surprisingly mature rump before him and the tiny brush seemed woefully inadequate, which made him all the more determined to make it work. The yellow pants were clingy and the smooth material was thin, revealing every graceful curve. Debbie didn't yet have Joyce's full seat, he thought, but she's getting there.
"I'm going to start with my hand," he told her sternly. "Now you cooperate or I'll use the brush!"
Debbie felt sweat at the back of her neck. She felt a flushing heat across her chest, too. This was so embarrassing! To be spanked like a child! What had happened? What had gone wrong? How did she end up in this situation? It was so unfair. Her parents were the ones misbehaving, and yet _she_ was getting the spanking!
(If you want the rest of the novel... buy the book!)
