    sweet girl. Walking was a huge challenge and anything needing
    coordination between left and right. Hugely brave; she often fell
    down two or three times just getting from desk to classroom door.
    my daughter is a maths teacher she once had a savant in her class a math genius but he couldn't tie his shoe laces or go shopping alone strange.

    General discussion: "If it's off-topic, or you're not sure where to put it, put it here."

    Phase One: Program RoboMod to identify [and ban in cumulative thirty day increments for each recurring offense] any and all displays of Not Invented Here (NIH) Topic Intolerance and petty personal attack: the "crisis stage" condition coquette has diagnosed will have been remedied; Phase Two: Code all RHP Thumbs Up and Down to reveal the site member's nickname identity [having done so, the hateful stench wafting up from the bowels of the ship will be ventilated]: issues resolved.

    We already have that. It's called "Site Ideas".

    I remember starting an anarchists' club in high school, but we never got round to choosing a leader...

    #2: This is the very worst idea I've ever heard. I know it didn't originate with you, Bob. Thumbs, by necessity, should remain a secret ballot, otherwise no one would use them, resulting in censorship. And censorship is a bad, bad thing.

    Suzi, you have a point. How about if Thumbs Down and Up weren't an available public forum feature, wouldn't disagreement and approval seek an outlet in posting to the threads in focus? If so, wouldn't this previously pent up member opinion increase this site's public forum activity volumes? Censorship violation/standards are agreed to by all members upon joining.
