    Me too. I will try not to be repetitious or redundant.

    What's the difference between the Quakers and the Amish?
    Are they the same?

    Sure, why not?

    But what about that question?

    The Amish and the Quakers. Are they the same? Similar?

    I'm not big on religion.

    Nothing at all the same. Amish live in the past. Quakers are quite stylish.

    I'd love to join. Only question is, how will this club be different from the General Forum? Justing wondering the reason for suggesting this GB.

    Sorry, I had no idea (don't know anything about quakers, I don't even like the oats). Forget that idea then....

    "Oasis in Space"

    "A casual internet forum where new and old friends gather to swap a few thoughts and laughs at no one's expense.
    Note: Tries to capture the spirit of a relaxed place and refreshing experience." (gb)

    'I'm not big on religion', either. It's manmade as are cults, sects, secret societies, denominations, etc. I do care intensely about hard facts, absolute truth and its practical application in any realm (from ant behavior to biblical principles to chess strategies to zoology). Besides, the site's spirituality forum is clearly the most active of any available. Google's the only guy/gal who knows where to find definitive explanations of the similarities and differences of the Amish and Quakers.

    I'm in. I can use some optimism.

    Perhaps that word could be worked into the name of the club. Not very original, but...

    Good, Phranny. Maybe your friends will also join. Let's hope it becomes a reality. You're asking questions I'm still asking myself. Let's think out loud. Different in terms of thread volume and number of posters; private and personal, rather than public and semi-personal. Similar with respect to range of topics, thumbing, occasional hijackings and squabbles .

    Motive is less personal than experimental. During 2013, I've wondered if a relaxed nucleus of reasonable adults without hidden agendas would be able to simulate the comfort and tone of a civilized party (at which nobody's trying to play king or queen of the mountain or has to leave through the bathroom window because it's so boring. lol). Further fracturing this forum or hurting the interests of site ownership is last thing in the world I'd want to cause. I owe much to Russ & Chris.

    Hey, Joe. How about a little reverse spin: "Pessimism Sucks!" Ha,

    I was never good at pessimism, but I can be negative when necessary. Lol
