Hello Brecky. The WebJefe hisself nixed the idea but perhaps someday they will come around. The advantage to having such would be that it would keep the other forii less congested with off-topic chatter and that they could keep a Breakfast Table forum limited to members only if they would find that more desireable, at least the general public would not stumble across the babble if they came here seeking more mundane information.
As it is we are blessed with more leverage to go deeper into our thoughts and feelings on less pertinent topics giving this board much more depth than one would find on at other sites about Mexico. After all, Mexico is much more than just a tourist destination it is a way of life and state of mind as well. It is also the number one destination for retirees and ex-pats of all ilks in the western world, people considering moving here want the hear about our perceptions and activities may not be entirely Mexico-centric but is part of our daily lives as residents and frequent visitors of this country.
It is a given that internet discussion boards will have a lot of useless chatter but we are fairly well behaved at this site, moreso than most any other that is not moderated by a team of drill sergeants. Still, May Day was a bloody affair here on MC as posts were deleted, censored, and warnings given. That would indicate more control and order is still being sought. I had a post deleted the other day that was neither rude, offensive, or entirely off-topic. I'm just seeking a middle-ground that would please everyone, if that is at all possible.
I appreciate hearing your comment on the matter. I will see you soon. -Peter
